ebook version replaces word 'kindle' with 'nook'

This is rather comical... sounds like an example of batch editing fail...

Philip Howard discovered something odd about the copy of “War and Peace” he purchased for his new Nook:
Every instance of the word “Kindle” had been clumsily replaced with the word “Nook.”
I purchased Superior Formatting’s 99-cent edition of the classic novel, too, and Howard’s right: There are some hilarious incidents of butchered Tolstoy in this bad boy (page numbers from my now-treasured Nook edition):

    Captain Tushin, having given orders to his company, sent a soldier to find a dressing station or a doctor for the cadet, and sat down by a bonfire the soldiers had Nookd on the road. (P. 670)
