When Sunday comes around, I'll turn on WiFi. That will be two weeks with WiFi off. I'll report back what happens. The problem is that last time I had WiFi on, I had no idea what was on there so I had no idea if anything was deleted.

It's happening fairly consistently for me, but just seems to be ones I've side loaded since my last sync with Amazon, but not necessarily all of them. I typically don't keep wifi on all the time. It's very weird behavior which leads me to believe it's some sort of weird bug as opposed to malicious behavior by Amazon.

I've been following what's going on with the Kindle and sideloaded content.

I made my comment to Jon, since Jon likes to take big dumps in the cheerios of Kindle users.

I decided to turn on WiFi the last time I charged it. But I didn't take note of what was on there. So I've put eBooks on there that I know are there. So if any of them go, I'll know.

I do keep wifi on all the time. I don't carry my Kindle (or Nook) with me. If I read away from home it is on my iPhone so I want my location to sync. I also like to keep all my software up to date. I don't seem to have too many problems that way.

It is generally NOT a common bug. It has happened to me twice with two different devices but has been a few years now. I frequently leave Wi-fi off for months with some of my older models, and the sideloaded do not disappear when I turn Wi-Fi on. Not sure what causes it the rare times it happens, but it's not a common thing for most users.

I suspect that is why Amazon is so disinterested in it. Finding intermittent bugs is a total pain. Spending the time and effort to find an intermittent bug that affects users who are sideloading content very likely not purchased from Amazon is likely very far down the devs to-do list.

Yeah, deliberately adding new misfeatures is a much higher priority.

But, for all we know, they haven't yet acknowledged that the bug exists, much less added fixing it to the to-do list.

Now the Oasis only shows up in the 3-bar menu on the left of the main header. The navbar, as well as the main Kindle series product page have been scrubbed of links to it.

Well, if this really is the end of the Kindle Oasis, maybe they'll add buttons to the next version of the PW SE, perhaps later this year?

If they don’t release something with page turn buttons I will be looking at Kobo when my Oasis dies (or the battery life gets too frustrating).

I agree. I won't buy another reader without page turn buttons. I have the new Nook Glowlight 4 Plus and I have to say I am pleasantly surprised. I have had lots of Nooks and this is by far the best one I have owned, however it is out of stock until May according to the website. Of course, B&N discontinued the Nook for Windows app so I can no longer liberate my Nook books so I still buy from Amazon.

If I needed a new reader right now, I would buy a Kobo.

I'd be happy to buy a new Kobo with no buttons. I've love an Aura H20 design with an 8 inch screen and a more hefty battery and faster processor.

I will also never buy a Kindle again if buttons don't make a reappearance. I hope Kobo will continue their current trend of devices with 7-8'' screens and buttons; if not, I'd probably have to look towards Pocketbooks. Nooks are not an option for me unless they completely rehaul their software (which majorly sucks as it is now, IMO).
