I find the general level of quality in ebooks to be disappointing. Many don't seem to have been proof-read. A simple spell-check would have caught many of the mistakes. I've even found books where the strike-throughs from the word processor have been left in the text.

Most problems do seem to be a result of errors in the OCR process, though. The problems do seem to be independent of the place purchased, which makes sense. Some formatting problems such as margins and the like may be attributed to conversion software.
