Kindle for android 'on device' versus 'archive'

Hope I'm in the right forum here - apologies if not.

I am running Kindle for Android on a Galaxy GT-p1010 (wiFi only - no 3G) and I'm having problems keeping my current read 'on device'. I travel a lot by plane, so I religiously switch to 'flight mode' (WiFi off) when I get aboard.

So, I open my Kindle software and start reading a book, no problem. Food comes, so I switch off my Android. After food, I switch my Android on and my book has moved to 'Archive'. I don't seem to be able to move it back to 'On device' and I can't open it in 'Archive' because I have no connection.

If the book can move from 'On device' to 'Archive' without a connection, why can't it move back again - or, more to the point, how do I stop it moving in the first place?

I've only noticed this behaviour since upgrading to latest Kindle software (Kindle V3.5.1.1 Android V2.2.1)

I believe that some apps will discard content which is "reloadable" if storage space becomes low. Perhaps this is the case with the Kindle App?

Were you ever able to find an answer to the problem regarding books moving from "on device" to "archive" when you shut down your galaxy? I am having the same difficulty and cannot find an answer to the problem. thanks.
