People have been reporting similar intermittent problems with e-ink Kindles too. For some reason when the book is purchased it shows up in the cloud, but doesn't actually download to your default device as it normally would. It sounds like you may be looking at your 'cloud' or 'all' list after syncing and seeing the books there, but they're not actually also on your device like they used to be. So when you want to read them you have to download manually.

No-one seems to know why this is happening and it seems to right itself temporarily and then start up again. It's an irritation more than a real problem - it doesn't take long to download a book - if you're worried about forgetting you've bought it, or not being in wi-fi range when you want it, just try to remember to go to the cloud and download it as soon as you've bought it.
