Smile Document conversion causing Spoiling

I was given a bunch of free ebooks which were formatted awfully. There was a huge amount of work required to get them straight and ready to load on the ereader.

But I found that unless I was really careful, especially towards the end of a short story with a twist etc, I was getting to see plot lines and phrases which in effect became spoilers.

Mentioned this to a friend who reads a different genre but had the same problem. So we have swapped files, I am reformating his stuff and he is doing mine. Now if I could get to grips with Calibre's REGEX and add that to my armory of Word Macro's I'd be sorted.

Funny thing is I find the conversion process although sometimes repetitive, quite therapeutic.

Good idea
Perhaps try calibre's preprocess input option to save a lot of work. It has improved greatly.
