Books Particularly Well-Formatted for Kindle

Is there a list for well-formatted Kindle books? Why should we focus on bad format jobs, if there isn't one?

I just bought a book which seems to be a MASTERPIECE of Kindle formatting!

I have not read thousands of Kindle books, so there may be others, feel free to add them to this thread.

The book I bought is

Linux Command Line and Shell Scripting Bible,

by Richard Blum, published by Wiley Publishing in 2008.

The fonts are far clearer, bolds bolder, and italics italicker than in any Kindle book I've seen. The book is broken up with little photo-images that look fantastic. This goes nicely with the quality of the writing; this seems to me to be a superb book.

The catch is that this is more expensive than the $9.99 that I try to hold my ebooks to. But I guess I am willing to go beyond that point when a publisher has gone beyond the call of duty in formatting.
