    When I look for this book on Nook for PC using the list format,

    When I look for this book on Nook for PC using the list format, I see (Un)Common Books¿ - Microsoft Word 2013. I assume
    this is a conflict between Microsoft's proprietary two-byte characters and Unicode's standard two-byte characters. However, it makes me worry what other problems I going to find because the author used other Microsoft non-standards. (Or maybe I'm having a bad day.)
