Subject: [bksvol-discuss] publisher quality--a real disappointment!

Well I pulled down my 1st pq book today. I expected to se, uh, well,
publisher quality. What I'm seeing is lots of words run together,
sometimes 3 at once, which makes it a rather difficult & tedious
reading experience. Somehow the eutopia of perfect books is exploding
in our faces, & I can only wonder why. I hate to say it, but it surely
seems as though the volunteer-submitted books are often better.

I'm not complaining--I love it that publishers are giving books to
us--but I'm wondering why these problems? Surely a spellcheck would
have picked them up. & now that the book is in the collection, is
there anything at all that can be done to improve the quality?

Folks, this is beyond sad! Ok, yall, rant over. I'll shut up now.
