The sometimes WTH of digital reading

(Family advisory: bad words ahead.)

I started reading Lover Mine because…well, because I can’t not read it. Got through the prologue okay, but stumbled over the opening of chapter one. What’s funny is that I think it probably happened in formatting/conversion, but the slang and style is so extreme in the BDB books I just can’t tell for sure.

Another fucking butterfly.

That’s exactly how it looks on the screen. (Bought from Sony ebookstore/reading on nook.)

So far the rest hasn’t been too bad—some words with spaces in the middle of them—but I still have to assume that paragraph went bad during the making of the digital book.

I expect some “out there” in this series I’m thoroughly addicted to, but that was one hell of a mind-boggling introduction to the story.

    Let me know if you love this book.

    P.S. I hate when formatting sucks on a e-book…especially when you pay big bucks for that ebook.
