Text in bold all the time.

This is the weirdest thing I've ever seen since I started using the Kindle. Bought this book on Amazon ...

http://www.amazon.com/Build-Database...9470434&sr=1-3

... the fonts are always in bold mode. I though was my Kindle but looks the same on iPad. Here is the weird part: playing around with font size, like bigger or smaller, fixed the problem. But after a few pages, the font is bold again. I also noticed that when I press on any word, iPad of course, a Chinese word appears instead of the meaning of the word.

Has someone seen something like this before? Not sure if return the book, complain or what, because is a nice book, but the bold bothers me a bit.

Sounds like a formatting problem. You could strip the DRM, convert to HTML, fix the formatting, and convert back to Kindle format. Or, return the book for a refund, while complaining about the formatting.

Just got off the phone with Amazon customer support. LOVE AMAZON ;-)

She followed the same exercise with me and basically confirmed what I said. It is clearly a formatting problem so they gave me my money back but promised to check with publisher and let me know.
