    badly done

    every character is underlined.

    this could have been fixed so easily.

    for me, it makes the collection unreadably distracting -- I keep wanting to fix the underlining.

    Only the first half is readable

    The underlines are bad enough, but the real problen starts about half way through when Nook Color seems to run out of internal memory and all I get is blank pages. I've tried all the usual fixes, tried to get help from B&N, etc. At least the book was free.
    It is a great collection of dated but still enjoyable stories. I hope someday to read the rest.

    Trouble prone

    Thought my Nook was going bad! Just a badly scrambled book.
