I recently bought an ebook and it downloaded fine except every letter of every word appears as a tiny box. I retried downloading it several times and always get the same results. I regularly download ebooks and have never seen this before or since. Tried to email the author but no reply. I use acrobat reader. Can anyone help as I realy want to read this book>

It sounds as though it's in a font not available on your system, for example a chinese or japanese font that doesn't use a Latin character set. If you open it in Acrobat, and choose File> Document Properties > Fonts, it should list the names of the fonts used.

You may have to dig about on the website where you downloaded it to see if they offer it in different languages.
