A person might think that you could simply take your book and instantly it's formatted into a Kindle or eBook, in much of the same way a copier machine would make a copy.
Nope. I wish!!
And as if formatting for the Kindle wasn't challenging enough if you throw in all the fractions, charts and other special formatting used throughout a cookbook, then you're really asking for trouble. I have a Kindle app on my iPad which I love. And although the Kindle app for the iPad was able to format my book to perfection even with all it's fractions, unfortunately the Kindle version was not being so accommodating.
Kindle does not like 1/8, 1/3 or 2/3
Kindle is able to recognize some fractions - 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4. But for all others like 1/8, 1/3 or 2/3, it inserted a square placeholder instead throughout the book. Buggers! I have to say that again. Buggers!! And if it couldn't handle a basic fraction like 1/3, you can pretty much figure it wasn't going to have any idea what to do with 1/16th or 1/32th.
Anyway, it made my hours upon hours of time spent formatting these books look like a jumbled mess for some recipes. Very sorry about this. Just ordered my own Kindle so I'll be able to avoid any issues like this in the future.
Again, though, the book appeared perfectly on the iPad - fractions and all. Got to love that iPad!

Ebooks have Been Reformatted
Needless to say, the eBooks have been reformatted and now should work on any Kindle device. One small crisis diverted! Thanks to all who have purchased my books and eBooks! I'd love to hear from anyone who's had a chance to make some of these amazing dairy-free ice cream recipes. Would love to know if your family is enjoying them as much as ours!
