I'm not a scannor, so take this advice with a grain of salt, but you might 
try increasing the dots-per-inch from 300 to 400 for the pages giving you 
problems. This increases your scan time but can give you better results.

Ellen, Google Books are scanned as well, so are not 100% accurate. I
would guess that this book just has some space that aren't wide enough
for the OCR to determine whether or not they are supposed to be a space.
What I would do is have a sighted person check a couple of the places
where you have had an issue. If they tell you there are spaces between
the words, I would assume that this book has weird spacing that the OCR
has trouble with and you will have to fix it.
