No line breaks

I've tried a few methods for getting a copy of Shakespeare's sonnets on my Kindle 2, and the result is always the same: no line breaks--each sonnet as a single, run-on paragraph.

My first attempt was to download the mobi-formatted gutenberg version.

My second was to install the Savory hack, download a PDF (with clear line breaks and nice formatting) and let savory do the conversion.

Both times, I had the same result. Poems without line breaks.

Any thoughts on what is going on or how I might resolve this?

Hi ecpepper and welcome,

Have you tried Calibre to convert your Gutenberg source file in a format adapted to your kindle 2?

IIRC there is a version of this in the library here at MR, have you tried that one? (the mobi/prc version)
