A disappointing rendering of a great book. The Nook is a convenient way to house several cookbooks, since I cook in more than one kitchen. However, I am irritated (again!) by poor formatting, garbled text, and paragraphs rendered as nothing more than a string of eeeeeeeeeeeeeee's. I don't think it's fair to expect us to pay $15 for a book that has merely been scanned in, and not formatted correctly for the Nook. The recipes are great, and serve (as I think they should) as a springboard for your own creativity. But for now, the Nook format isn't living up to its potential.
