    Alright, so I have a lot of .epub format things that I get from a site I go to. Don't worry, nothing illegal.

    I can open them up in Freda, and it works alright. The performance is good, there are only a few errors with the actual formatting, and so forth. I was told, though, that Nook can open up .epub as well.

    It opens them, alright, but it is just plain white other than the page number and chapter title. In other words, no text.

    I don't think there's anything majorly wrong with the file, it opens up in Freda.

    Have you tried any of the other ePubs? Where are they from? How big are they? Can you show us an example of the format errors?

    Other readers? I found one that worked somewhat and stuck with it. I have gotten a lot of individual files, though. They're from Fimfiction. They range in size, but are never above 100kb.

    Those underscores are supposed to be apostrophes. The thing is, sometimes they come out as apostrophes and sometimes underscores.

    ePubs as in the books themselves. (Your image isn't working by the way, says I have to sign in)

    I looked into it just now, and they're saying that it's their ePub converter that is the problem and that you should try the FanFictionDownloader for Calibre.

    Looking deeper... There's a standalone app of FanFictionDownloader, and then there's a plugin for Calibre (an eBook library manager)

    You can get it here:

    http://fanfictiondownloader.net/download.php

    I use Calibre myself. It's pretty bulky for what you need to do, so I say get the standalone.

    Thanks.

    Edit: Doesn't work for my fan fiction site.

    Yeah, the conversion script they have is probably super outdated or something.

    You might have to try re-downloading them, or converting the txt version.
