Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

Error in EPUB format

Post by Julia_Review »

Hello,

I decided to review a book and downloaded the EPUB format (the only one available). When I opened it the pages looked like they had image format. You can't edit anything, the text is blurry and has watermarks on all the pages. I tried to convert it to other formats (MOBI, PDF) but it made thinks only worse. It's not "incomplete" or "the wrong book" but still not really readable.
Have you had an issue like that? What could you suggest?

Thank you!

Hello.

Thank you for the inquiry. Download the OBC e-reader app. After logging in, you will find the file there. See if it's the complete version of the book. If it's not, please file an error report via the update tab.

Thanks.
No battle is ever won; they are not even fought. The field only reveals to man his own folly and
despair, and victory is an illusion of philosophers and fools.
