Re: Food Rules - Michael Pollan

@AikiPen,

Can you supply at least one page where this is occurring?

Are you sure that the problematic file on your NOOK is PDB? B&N hasn't supplied PDB files to NOOKs for many months. I'm thinking maybe you're using a Mac, and when you download the e-book from B&N you get a PDB. But only Mac and Blackberry get PDBs; NOOK devices and all of the NOOK-branded apps get EPUBs.

 

Your description sounds exactly like this. On your NOOK you'd have a funky EPUB with a bunch of markup (probably CSS-2) that's messing up Adobe's page counting. When you download to your Mac you get an eReader PDB which doesn't have that because eReader markup is totally different from EPUB. Then you convert the PDB to EPUB, and Calibre creates a fairly clean EPUB.

 

Double-check the file in the 'my B&N library' folder on your NOOK. It's probably an EPUB.

 


 

 

Sorry, Doug.  I honestly had *no* idea that the wireless delivery was a different format than the download delivery format.  I am on Mac, so my downloads are PDB, but the Nook says ePUB.

No problem. It's a confusing situation.

Re: missing Cover shows as blank page in The Gathering Storm

@ankala,

This is a case where not all NOOKbooks contain covers being that publishers do not have the rights for the cover in eBook format.

Thank you.

B&N Classic - Pride and Prejudice - Can't access endnotes

I can't access the endnotes in the version of Pride and Prejudice that came with my Nook (B&N Classic version).  I'm assuming this is an issue with the ebook itself since I don't have any problems with endnotes in other books.  Is this a problem with this ebook in general or is my copy bad?  I tried archiving and unarchiving, but that didn't help.  The book is one of the few pdb formats that I have.  Perhaps that is the cause, but then I would suppose everyone would have the same issue.

Re: The NOOKbook Correction Thread (Meta-data/Formatting)

I have noticed many different books from the SF and Fantasy genres which have a "shared universe" in the title ("Forgotten Realms", "World of Warcraft") appear in my nook with just the shared universe as the book's complete title. This makes it pretty hard to find the "Forgotten Realms" book I want to read, as all 12 of them are named "Forgotten Realms", and most of them are by a common author. In many cases, I would argue you could drop the "universe" portion from the title entirely, although publishers might have some branding concerns about that :smileyhappy:

Title (according to nook): Forgotten Realms
ISBN / Disambiguated title: 9780786954179 ("Forgotten Realms: The Ghost King"); 9780786952656 ("Forgotten Realms: The Pirate King"); 9780786952649 ("Forgotten Realms: The Orc King"); 9780786954018 ("Forgotten Realms: Homeland")

Title (according to nook): World of Warcraft
ISBN ("Disambiguated title"): 9781439171431 ("World of Warcraft: The Shattering"); 9781439159385 ("World of Warcraft: Arthas: Rise of the Lich King")

Title (according to nook): Dragonlance
ISBN ("Disambiguated title"): 9780786954452 ("Dragonlance: Dragons of the Highlord Skies"); 9780786954445 ("Dragonlance: Dragons of the Dwarven Depths")

I had actually typed a bunch more, but it took so long to track them down and type them into the box that I got logged out, giving me an error when I posted the form, and my input was lost - and I just don't have the heart right now to type the whole thing again. Suffice to say, most of the books

Michael - I tried these steps several times, both prior to my post and again after your reply.  Each time my nook downloads the pdb version of pride and prejudice.  I know it is downloading a new copy of the ebook as I verified a new download was done by browsing "my B&N downloads" on the nook drive on my PC.  The pdb version is downloaded each time (with a new date/time stamp). 

 

The pdb version is the problem in accessing the endnotes.  I downloaded the epub copy of the ebook from my online B&N "My Nook Library" account and sideloaded it and I have access to the endnotes just fine.  I guess I'll just use that copy from "My Documents", though it would be nice to have all of my Jane Austen books together in "My B&N Library".

Re: Food Rules - Michael Pollan

[ Edited ]

Michael - you asked if I could supply at least one example.

 

Unfortunately I can't. I was reading in store deciding whether or not to purchase the book. The errors were so numerous and disruptive to the reading flow that I did not purchase the book.

Re: Food Rules - Michael Pollan

@AikiPen,

I appreciate your efforts although we couldn't find errors on our end.  It would be greatly appreciated, if you have the opportunity to try it again and just mark down a specific page and type of error.

Sacajawea by Anna L. Waldo

 

ISBN - 9780062035912

 

It is in PDB format rather than the more functional EPUB format.

I thought NookBooks came in EPUB format.

FYI I purchased this book today when it was first released.
