I haven't worked out a pattern, but the two or three times it has happened, I have lost all the annotations on the book.
In each case, I had made some annotations while reading, used the annotations to correct the source and deleted each annotation. At the end I had no annotations left. Then when reading the book again, I made more annotations. The next night when I was at the computer, I discovered there were no annotations. But, when reading the book again the annotations were saved and there when I went to do the fixes. I don't know what was different about my use of the device when I lost vs didn't lose the annotations.
I also had problems with the Glo 'losing' highilghts and bookmarks, but on other occasions they would be there. Yep bit of a lottery dip.
Anyway, I gave up on the Glo for non-fiction - I use the Sony 650 - which is stable and reliable.
I only read fiction on the Glo, because I don't need to highlight or dog ear pages etc.
