What is your preferred format style if you had a choice? Not what will you accept, but what will you prefer?

Can I tell where a paragraph starts? Can I tell where a paragraph ends? Can I tell where sentences start and end? Pretty simple. I'm currently reading Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey and Maturin books. A single space indent and no spaces between paragraphs. Just like Wool, I tell where the paragraph starts and where the paragraph ends.

That doesn't answer the question at all. What formatting do you prefer given your choice? Not if I can do this or that, it's OK.

That's fairly irrelevant to anyone BUT me isn't it? I don't want to turn this thread into another ebook formatting referendum (there's more than enough of those already), when it's supposed to be about Wool's availability in ePub. Start a new thread in the appropriate forum if you want to talk formatting/typography preferences.

Well that's at least somewhat relevant to getting Wool into the ePub format.

But why buy from Amazon when there already exists an ePub edition and all of your devices are using ADE?

I give up. Why?

I don't recall suggesting that anyone do anything in particular (other than read the book, of course).

I had a weird thing happen when I read the first three Wool books on my Sony reader. I downloaded them from Amazon (why would I do such a thing? well they were free!) and then converted them in Calibre. The files had extra characters here and there. They are not typos. For a long time I wondered if they were a secret code and I would scrutinize them closely. But I got books 4 and 5 from B&N and they didn't have these extra characters. I have no idea what could have caused this. Here are some examples, copy and pasted from Calibre:

had felt,>As with its floors and floors of apartments

“Do you think it was an accident? A fire or a power outag, be?”

The first year without angher, Holston had waited,

Although I have "bought" dozens and dozens of Amazon freebies, these are the first that I actually *read* so I have no idea if it happens frequently with Amazon books converted with Calibre.

I don't see those errors in the Omnibus edition. Take a look at the Amazon versions and see if you see the errors there. Maybe they were cleaned up for the Omnibus version after these errors were pointed out.

I do like that Wool (at Kobo) is using the fan made cover that is much better. It's the cover I've chosen to use as well.
