Text problems in LotR beginning to arise

From the Kindle forums (I'd link but the thread is too long).

Quote:
Example of problem.... In the hard copy, from the chapter "Shadow of the Past"

"The Enemy still lacks one thing to give him strength and knowledge to beat down all resistance......"

In the Kindle version....

"The Enemy still lacks one thing to and knowledge to beat down all resistance...."
Also:

Quote:
one thing I've noticed is that wherever the word "Dunedain" should occur (with an acute accent on the "u"), what is actually shown is "Du" with a circumflex accent on the "u", and the next 19 characters are missing. For some examples, see these locations in the trilogy: 455-60, 460-65, and 24701-2.

Heh, sorry. I guess the mods can close this one if it would be easier to follow over there.
