Hi gang, I downloaded and looked at the XML version of Why We Suck, and saw that a number of words had run together in the middle part of the book. So I withdrew the book and looked at the original RTF file. It's perfect. There are no words that have run together. And the book was put in the collection in early December, way before the new site went live. I will file an emergency ticket with Engineering about this. My question to all of you is: has anyone else downloaded Why We Suck? Do you see any words that have run together, especially italicized words? If you have downloaded the book, please check page 161. About a third of the way down the page, it should say "to ESPN". Does your book say that, or "toESPN"? "ESPN" is italicized, but "to" is not. They've run together in the XML version, but not in the original RTF file. My second question is: has anyone noticed this in any of the books you've downloaded since the new site went live, words that have run together? If so, please let me know the name of the book and where the words are. And to answer the question about who puts the bestsellers in, the publishers don't give us copies, we buy and process them ourselves inhouse. Thanks for letting me know about this situation!

Do I have to admit I like bad comedy? *sighs lol it's Dennis Leery's Why We Suck. It is fine for the first 150 pages or so, but then there is about 40 pages of jibberish. Then the rest of the book is perfect. I found it rather odd. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Mayrie ReNae" <mayrierenae@xxxxxxxxx> To: <bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Monday, January 19, 2009 8:09 AM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: ny times books? > Hi Candice, > > Can you tell us which book you're having trouble with, and what kind > of errors you're encountering?
