Despite being almost 2009, both the Reader's LRF and EPUB renderers have some device-crashing bugs, the exact conditions for most of which haven't been mapped out. Most of the bugs in LRF rendering seem to occur during initial pagination, not during actual display of the content. The Sony desktop software does initial pagination when you use it to copy books onto the Reader, and appears to have fewer bugs than the code on the Reader itself. Thus, if you have an LRF book which crashes the Reader, you can sometimes work around the crash by copying the book onto the device using the Sony software.
