I don't know if anyone else has noticed this bug: When I buy a book that is on my wishlist, once downloaded it shows the wrong file size in the library listing. I probably shouldn't let this worry me, the filesize is pretty much useless information anyway because it is often more a measure of the size of the cover than the length of the book, but there is a workaround.

I think the problem might be that when a book is added to the wishlist, a virtual book is created in the database which has a small filesize, just enough for the synopsis and other details. Then when I buy that book, the real book replaces the virtual book but the filesize is not updated in the database.

A workaround is either not to add books to my wishlist, or do the following:

1. Remove the book from the wishlist
2. Sync
3. Turn the device off then on (not sure if this step is always necessary).
4. Buy the book.
