Most Kindle books are wonderful…

Most Kindle books are wonderful, and I adore my Kindle. But I’ve recently run across a book that was scanned in and not checked for formatting or scanning errors, and it annoys me. It’s a novel called The Land of Laughs I ran across in the comments of a Boing Boing story.

So here’s the note I sent to Amazon about it:

Comments:Dear Amazon -”

I just wan- tecl you to know that the Kinclle version of #8230;The Land of Laughs -” a Novel is riclclled with stray characters, scanning issues, and other prob- lems that eat away at the enjoyment of reacling a good book.#8230;

This mess- age might be a little over the top…” but it’s representa- tive of the types of errors founcl in the text.#8230;

I got a response back a couple of hours later saying they have asked for it to be corrected and would let me know when a new version is available. Cool!

    I have had the same problem (and made the same complaint!) about the Steven Erickson “Malazan Book of the Fallen” series! \1
