Format issue with E-Pub
I have bought my mam a Sony PRS-350 Book reader for xmas and downloaded a book from waterstones on xmas day and no problems at all, today i went on the same site and purchased another book today, i put it on the reader and its displaying it in a weird format.
It is showing about 4 words per line and all centralised in the middle of the page, for example
The book is reading
like this and it
looks really silly
Its like the above but all in the middle of the page
Any ideas whats gone wrong and if it can be fixed

It's the fault of the book; it has very wide margins set. I'd suggest that you e-mail the bookstore and ask for a refund.
There's nothing that you can do about it unless you're willing to strip the DRM from the book and edit it yourself.
Currently proofreading The Poison Belt, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Most books won't look like this, but occasionally the publishers seem to forget about margins and other settings that adversely affect small screen devices. For example, a 1" margin is fine in a printed book, but is bad on a device that is only 3" or 4" wide.
