Savannah monitor book, ebook and Kindle

Hello I was unable to attend to my website for some months and the links to our savannah monitor book were broken. It's fixed at
Mampam Conservation - The Truth about Varanus exanthematicus - now an ebook

Also I saw a bad review from a Kindle reader that I am worried about. I'd appreciate any feedback about this that I can use to improve the publication.

Thanks
Daniel

Re: Savannah monitor book, ebook and Kindle

I'm not super techy but what format is the ebook in? If the print is showing up super small on a Kindle and there is no way to change it on the device, running the book file through a mobi converter can fix it. Or at least that worked for me once when I had the same problem with a book. I'm assuming it's the same problem, I haven't read the review.

I was first to purchase this from the ibooks app store on the iPhone last night. I can confirm the e-book is perfect! no problems found what so ever

What it's all about is the book was scanned and converted to PDF, however since it was scanned, each page is being handled as an image rather than a block of text. It should not be a big deal, but apparently kindle readers like text better than big images of text.

All I know is, I am quite happy with it, I store my hard copy in an envelope to keep dust off the cover, when I need to reference the book, I open the E-version.

Re: Savannah monitor book, ebook and Kindle

Thanks for the feedback and sorry about the Kindle version. One reason it wasn't changed is that I have received no complaints about it, only internet "rumours", hence my inquiry here. Now I know the Kindle version is bad I will withdraw it from sale and try to make a better version. Thanks for letting me know
