eBooks and Typos

Currently, I read eBooks with the Mobipocket reader on a Treo device, however I am greatly looking forward to migrating to eInk once the Cybook G3 and/or Amazon Kindle is release. Although I'd love to get a Sony Reader, there doesn't seem to be any Bible translation other than the NIV on the Connect site, and I'm more of a TNIV/NRSV type.

That being said, I was excited to purchase the TNIV translation on Mobipocket. I started to browse it and noticed awful typos. I mean, there doesn't appear to be any proofreading done at all. This saddens me. I want to embrace eBooks but whenever I get a book, it is so poorly proofread that I go running back to the paper edition.

Mistakes happen, but there just doesn't seem to be a way to let these companies know of typos and actually get them fixed. eBooks seem like a poorly executed afterthought.

Has anyone else experienced mass typos in eBooks and been able to do something about it? Just curious. I can live with them, but it makes eBooks look bad.

Regards,
Tom
