It's also available in two versions here on MobileRead.

This is my version:

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=35919

Sony's version, also free - as are all titles here on MobileRead - contains spaces between paragraphs, which personally drives me batty.

All my newer titles have em dashes, by the way, and are single-spaced.

I Actually Prefer the Extra Line Break Between Paragraphs, I find it helps my eyes flow better over the paragraph (so i dont loose my place at all really when they are there where a page full of text and no breaks blinking used to make me reread lines) and gives me a sense of acomplishment at the end of every paragraph(and gives me the second or two i need to think about what i read so i retain text better). it also gives me the Reminder that it is a new paragraph and gives my head the mental pause it needs to register that fact.

That's the correct version for you, then.

You might also try to get as many of the Sony classics priced at $1.99; as many of them (not all), have double spaces. It takes extra work to get rid of those spaces, and Sony seems a little lazy in that regard. Take advantage of their laziness now, before they feel the hit from more competition.

If something like that can drive you batty then it is probably not a drive but a putt

Thanks for the entertainment.

I went into the bookstore, picked a category, picked the under $5 selection, and then sorted by price. All the $0s floated to the top.
