Nook Simple Touch Overdrive Question

I have a library patron who has a Nook Simple Touch that has been working well for the few months she's had it. 

The current book that she is reading was checked out from our library's Overdrive service.  This one has been having issues displaying the paragraphs properly and the pages are running one into the next.

 

Any advice on how to proceed using this device?

Redownload the book.  But, I'm willing to bet it's a poorly formatted file and the best you can do is adjust the margins and text to try and make it fit what they formatted it to.  Also try it with and without "Publisher Defaults" turned on.

 

She can find all these settings by tapping the screen once while she's reading and tapping the "Aa" button that appears in the bottom row.

 

Is it an epub or a pdf?   If it's a PDF, it can be pretty hard to get right.  I gave up on an overdrive book in PDF recently because it was too distracting to read.  Tell her to always go for epub if given the choice.

Look at it in Adobe Digital Editions.  Do you see the same formatting problems.  This would give you an idea if it's the book or the device, but I'd go with the book.  And, as PP said, if it's PDF, there is almost always formatting issues.
