Bebook mini (hanlin v5) epub margins

Hello,

I bought a Bebook Mini and found that the epub I bought at http://www.kobobooks.com and other epub sites like www.ebooks.com have horrible blank spaces at the edges (margins).

It makes the text look like a newspaper column.

Do any of you have the same problem? Is there a way to take those margins off?

Thank You.

First off, you have to strip the DRM. Then you can modify the CSS to remove the margins. I do it and it looks good on my 505 when I am done.
