    Waste of time

    Way to many typos, misspelled words etc. Possibly if you could guess well enough you might be able to try one or two of the receipes in this book. A real waste of my time.

    I could not open the ebook on my nook also.

    This should be fixed. As most have said, do not buy this book until it is able to be opened and read.
