The Hobbit - epub from Kobo store

Just purchased this for my new Kobo Glo. So far I haven't spotted any definite errors, although there are a couple of things that I need to check out against my paper copies. The formatting could do with tweaking though, as there are a couple of occasions (so far - at chapter 3) where a paragraph might be in a smaller font size than the rest of the text; something that I may, or may not, correct myself at a future date. Overall, pleased so far.

I haven't read The Hobbit in many years, so it's very enjoyable to visit it again; brings back lots of warm feelings.

Interestingly, the epub (as opposed to the kepub downloaded to the Kobo) has different formatting, and no sign of different font sizes.

I've had the exact same problem. Kobo have advised me that they have contacted the publisher to get it fixed. And The Lord of the Rings Trilogy is the same - got that today and it has the same mixed fonts.

Both are ok when you download into ADE and read the pure epub.
