Does anyone else notice that with some e-books it seems like words might be missing randomly throughout the book?
Yes! Uh, the cost of e-books. :?:

I haven't noticed that at all. Sometimes the spacing is a little jenky. But other than that it seems fine to me

This is so an issue in almost every book I read. Sometimes, if it's a pattern visible throughout the entirety of the book, I can attribute it to the author as not having the book properly edited. Otherwise, when there are inconsistent, random errors it's surely due to the E-reader not reading the document properly. What I do in this case is to open the book or document in another reader, and see if the problem persists.

I'm not sure what the problem is exactly, but I do know that it happens a lot.
And in the end, we were all just humans... Drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness.

It's more of misspelled words and paragraphing issues.

Not only missing words, there are duplicated, repeated words and phrases and sentences.. Sometimes tha graphics are missing, or a letter is replaced by another letter every time, like 'b' in the place of 'h'. Most of the time I can manage reading in spite of these. But sometimes they become very distracting, even frustrating! Once in a thriller book, the last few paragraphs were missing, instead the last word in that ebook was a meaningless one! You realise how I felt!

I think there're missing words even in some hard copies.
