I downloaded the same title from the Google-Sony store, and it pageturned normally. It contained a few OCR errors, but nothing I couldn't puzzle out while reading.

I'm new to the 505, only had it a few days, so I have no idea why this was happening.

I have VERY different experience: I downloaded 2 books from Gutenberg.org:
book 1: title: The Outline of Science, Vol 1 Author J. Arthur Thomson and second book:
Myths and Legends of Ancient Greece and Rome by E.M. Berens -
both books in EPUB format and both books illustrated with many pictures and it looks very good on my jetBook screen and I didn't find any typo and errors in both texts
When I downloaded 2 ePUB books from Google-Sony store - Faust and Harmonies of Nature - the quality of pictures looks not so good and both books have many OCR errors. Just two examples:"Stiffened by the Cold 6f winter" and
"The water qf the atmosphere is the matrix that electric,or,tq speak mere properly..." I understand that 500,000 books sounds very cool but quality must be acceptable. I don't like read books (even for free) with incorrect words... Maybe somebody like to guess the meaning of the word qf...but not me.
