Was wondering if anyone else has had the issues I am encountering and have any insight. I just tried to read two samples and had problems with both. The first, downloaded tonight, was Rick Warren's new book "The Purpose of Christmas". After several pages of intro, etc. etc., there was not even a single page from the book! How on earth can you decide if you want to purchase or not? The other sample that I downloaded quite some time ago was a Karen Kingsbury book. She is known for her lengthy dedications and other bits of intro but when I got to the first chapter, there was only a few pages of the story to read. Have also encountered this previously with other authors. Has anyone had this experience and is there anything that can be done? Thanks.
