Anyone that is having issues from a month ago that haven't disappeared at all (assuming you have been syncing) is likely having a deeper issue and may want to try signing out and back into your account on the device (this resets and reloads the database). The server issue seemed to have been fixed and after a sync my duplicates disappeared a while ago (although when I checked just now they are back).
I actually did a system reset within the last month, and that didn't fix the problem. So I'm going to hold off on that for now, because it's a bit of a pill reloading all my books.
