A free Kobo book completely unreadable

29 June 2015 11:27 (GMT)

I just downloaded a Kobo book by Sir Thomas Browne, "Pseudodoxia Epidemica or enquiries into many received tenets ...". It's free, and so it comes with no guarantee, but it's a waste of readers time to offer them a book which is utterly impossible to read. Here's a typical paragraph:

"Laflly, Man was not ooly dccdTcable in his integricy, but (be Angcb ofligbi in oil tbctr clarit)'. He thu bid be would belike luc liighcA , did err, ifinfoinc way be conceived nothttnfell'fo alcexdv; but inaticmptingfohighuncffed from Umfclf^ be mif-nnderUood the nature of God, and hdd i ialfe appreheolion o£ his owoi whereby vainly ancmpung not only inlbleacici, butimpolGb It looks as if it was got from the 17th century first edition by low-quality OCR. The true text is perfectly clear English prose. I suggest Kobo should remove this useless version from their bookshop.

Fortunately Project Gutenberg has the complete works in a very good edition.

Review:
Baby Girl Book 1: In the Beginning by Elle Klass is a compelling first-person narrative that draws you in and leaves you wanting more.

Imagine being abandoned at age twelve and having to fend for your self. That's what happened to Cleo—living on her own, in a big city, with winter approaching. She is resourceful and self-reliant.

Cleo is once again alone, in a new country, and with a new identity. What will happen next?

This is a great YA book that leaves you wanting more

Free Thriller:

The Doomsday Dilemma

Upon finally regaining consciousness, the first thing Peter Harper became aware of was that someone seemed to be drilling a hole into the top of his head. Searing pain shot through his brain like a bullet repeatedly ricocheting off the inside of his skull, followed by a slow creeping tinnitus, which started in low, but was soon up to a mile passed deafening...

Security guard Peter Harper awakes in a strange room, covered in blood from a catastrophic head wound, with no recollection how he got there. But he is not alone. He is the ‘guest’ of the mysterious Doctor Logan. A research scientist at the shadowy Government funded Ventrex labs where Harper works.
Harper is there to bear witness to a terrible and wonderful revelation Doctor Logan has for the world. But whether Logan’s intentions are for the good of humanity only, time will tell.

A small well-meaning group of Eco-activists believe, with their help, Logan is about to expose the illegal covert bio-weapons research he has been involved with at Ventrex. It will topple the Government. To them Logan is a hero. But Peter Harper is not so sure.
