I want to read Robert Dallek’s one-volume biography of LBJ. Happily, it is available in the Kindle book store. Unhappily, the Kindle edition comes complete with an unreadable embedded font. Here’s a screen grab from my iPad:

Notice the terrible rendering of m, d, u, h, and other letters you might purchase playing Wheel Of Fortune. Notice the inconsistent baseline. Selecting a different font size makes no difference. This eBook is fundamentally unreadable.

Dear Kindle for iPad team: please fix this. Yesterday. Please give us a choice of fonts for all of your ebooks.

(NB: The book is not available in the iBookstore; it is available on Nook for iPad, an application that seems to take several seconds just to render the next page.)
