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

Title: Code Blue by Richard L. Mabry, M.D. (Abingdon Press)

ISBN: 978-1-4267-0236-5

Format: epub

 

The story begins on Page 9, the pages before this appear to be in good order (copyrights, kudos, acknowledgements). However, once into the story, EVERY page has formatting errors. For the most part is crammed together words and sentences. But there are a lot of hyphens where hyphens don't need to be -- which makes it look like the author is hyphen happy -- and some other odd errors that I wouldn't necessarily call typos. Here are just a few examples:

 

Page 9: ... fearful thrill of weightlessness.Then the world [weightlessnes. Then the]

 

Page 10: ... really tried to run her offthe road? [off the]

 

Page 11: ... could be another explanation. . . . No, she [explanation ... No, she]

 

Page 49: ... advent of the Wwomen's movement. [women's movement]

 

Page 94: ... of the paper-work that never [paperwork]

 

Page 117: he plunged the scalpel into ... her dissection, SCathy wondered [missing "S"; found the missing "S"!] [She plunged ... Cathy wondered]

 

Page 119: ... had said his good-byes ... [goodbyes]

 

Page 120:  ... almost noseto-nose with Marcus [nose-to-nose]

 

Page 123: ... red polka-dot tie [polka dot]

 

Page 133: ... rectangular off-  white plastic box [off-white]

 

Since the margins are flush left and right, it cannot be determined if there are actually extra spaces, except in the instance of hyphens or ellipses.

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

These are titled wrong. Immortals is the series title.  Not the individual book titles

Immortals  This is "The Calling"

 

Immortals  "The Redeeming"

 

Immortals "The Gathering"

 

Immortals  "The Haunting"

 

Immortals "The Awakening"

  

Immortals "The Crossing"

[ Edited ]

Title: A Plunder by Pilgrims, by Jack Nolte (Flying Raven Press/Smashwords edition)
Bonus: A sneak preview of The Gray and Guilty Sea, by Jack Nolte
ISBN: None given
Format: epub

Throughout the file the text frequently changes font sizes. There might be a few paragraphs in 14 pt type (for example) and suddenly one or more paragraphs in 10 pt type. These occur on the same page. In other words, it isn't like Page 2 is large and Page 3 is small, it is mixed within the pages.

Page 9: Instead of looking at Gage, Mary stared straight ahead. [Marty stared]

Page 11: Tammy's Mom called ... [Tammy's mom called]

Page 23: Marty eyes widened, and he looked ... [Marty's eyes widened]

Page 30: "No bars!" Mary exclaimed. [Marty exclaimed]

Page 48: Mary went on staring at the man ... [Marty went on staring]


- The Gray and Guilty Sea (sneak preview)

Page 84: The theories ram the gamut ... [theories ran]
               She was a runway from a severe ... [She was a runaway]

Page 115: ... there's more than that that makes you different

                 [more than this that makes; or  more that makes]

Page 122 & 126:  122 - blinds striped her tan bedspread
                             126 - she ... patted the baby blue bedspread
                       [same room, same bed, should be same bedspead]

Page 128: "So here's what I want to ask you, Garrison. Here's what I want

                 to ask. I need ... [eliminate Here's what I want to ask.]

Page 152: ... smell of fish hang heavy in the air [smell of fish hangs]

Page 163: ... coastal stores: Oregon magnates ... [Oregon magnets]

Page 171: Janet had been a elegant creature ... [an elegant creature]

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

Michael,

 

The version of Fluke by Christopher Moore that I bought awhile ago does not have a cover.  The ISBN on this one is 0380978415 (at end of ebook).

 

The new version on the website (0061807680) has a cover.

 

Is there any way to get the cover to show on mine?  I have tried to archive and unarchive but that did not work.

 

Thanks,

Scott

Title: Island of the Swans by Ciji Ware

ISBN: 9781402246777

 

The first letter of the first word of every chapter is missing. Also numerous (too numerous to list) words in each chapter have a random space in the middle of the word. Also separate sections of chapters run together with no line space between the sections.

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

Sorry for the 2nd post - for some reason could not edit the first.

 

Just found these two today while going through my B&N Library on the Nook.

 

Title: DarkLands: Homecoming

ISBN: 2940011093968

Problem: Title listed as DarkLands on the Nook

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Title: DarkLands: Beast Wars

ISBN: 2940011112850

Problem: Title listed as DarkLands on the Nook

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

 

Both the above books are titled DarkLands on the Nook - makes it a little difficult to know what you book you want to read without either viewing the coves or opening the book first.
