I updated my iPhone first by downloading into iTunes then installing. Went OK

Moved on to update iPad 2. Either I missed it or it didn't offer to download then update. It did the update via wifi.

I normally keep @ 6GB free all the time. During the update it went to -0- but finally completed.

Started it up only to discover that my 78-80 Kindle books are gone.... Not sure what else, if anything is missing.

I did a restore of the backup I did just prior to updating and -0- changed.

"Lost" about 75-80 books. Not really gone but it will be a PITA to retrieve again from Amazon and my Calibre libraries......

First time or two I opened the Kindle app it told me the book was missing and to "re-register" the application. No longer does that and I have my @ 6GB of free space back.

The Kindle app doesn't back up it's library, so if something happens it's gone. Neither does iBooks.

They both depend on the idea that you can just download or sync your books again for free. The side loading is all at your own risk, so always keep copies of those elsewhere; as you apparently did.

Oh yeah. I've done IT work for more than 25 years so I have a tendency to backup data. Total loss of data = 0.

Still frustrating. Hopefully it won't happen again.

I didn't lose anything from iBooks, only from the Kindle application.

Thanks
