It wouldn't be the first e-book with mistakes.
Anyone who's read LOTR from HarperCollins knows this too well.

We have tonnes of the classics, all nicely formatted (kobo bugs excepted...) and proofread.

Rumor is that Kobo will come out with a software update that will let you delete them with the upgrade. Should be a free upgrade I would hope. The Amazon Kindle has done an upgrade recently free of charge.

I've also noticed that "On The Origin Of Species" by Darwin was packaged by a douchebag.
Since the entire 400ish bulk of that book is in a single chapter, and nobody bothered to segment it, it takes like 2 minutes to load.... yay

Yet the "retarded" free books are obviously being read. Interesting.

And for the record, chapter 3 isn't missing from my copy.

Your usage of "retarded" in this context is really hurtful to people who have family members who are intellectually disabled aka mentally retarded. (like myself)

It also makes you look ignorant and thoughtless.

sorry to offend but i really meant the other meaning of retarded, you know being slow and not up to pace?

it is not like i said these books were gay or faggot like since they have no alternative meaning that would fit the context. you will have to give me the benefit of the doubt.

thanks for confirming that i get a bad ebook
