This afternoon, I navigated to the bookshelf and found that all but five of my books are now blank and white -- the cover art is suddenly gone. The carousel still displays the cover art of the books but not the bookshelf.
I have tried syncing, rebooting (three times) deleting and re-loading, and they still appear without cover art when originally they displayed normally. There are numerous threads about this problem, without solutions, on some Amazon forums.
Now when I side-load a new, previously not loaded book, it appears normally with cover art.
Any ideas why, all of a sudden, nearly all my loaded books have lost the cover art and I am unable to restore it? This is extremely annoying, to say the least.
Glad you posted this and got a solution! Something similar happened to me and for the life me couldn't figure out what I did to get the covers from my 750+ books back (not all were gone, but still!). I do remember staying up for hours and hours doing stuff.
