It's a fair enough point. Nobody at Smashwords actually reads or checks any of the ebooks people publish there.

All of Dorchester's Leisure line seem to be Topaz format scanned images from the paperbacks. That is the only format available in the UK, epub versions exist for America, I don't know if they are any better or not.

I just started reading Gai-Jin by James Clavell (bought in mobipocket format at Fictionwise). It does look decent so far, except for this one:


"for God's saké,"


It made me laugh

That's what I'm thinking

That's my idea: to show how strange and frustrating it can be to read books (e- or not) that haven't been checked carefully.
