The incongruities seem blatantly intentional. Some of them seem to serve no other purpose than calling attention to the incongruities.
We'll know more after seeing the whole season 3, but at a minimum it's far too early to dismiss the book as non-canon or irrelevant.
I also think the continuity / incongruity issues are intentional. They especially draw attention to the mystery of "How's Annie?", we now find ourselves asking "Where's Annie?"
Although we have been told virtually nothing about SE3. One thing we have been told is that the events in FWWM are very important in regards to the new season. And Annie did appear briefly in the film. In a small but important role.
I think Annie may be pretty central to the narrative of the new season even if can't expect Heather graham to appear.
Also, I'm probably wrong. Trying to predict what will happen next in a Lynch production is pretty difficult.
