I have a weird problem here. My laptop and my desktop are both running windows XP. DE works fine on the laptop (P4 512mb ram). It however crashes on the desktop (AMD64 1gig ram) whenever I attempt to read an ebook or goto the reading view. One clear difference is I do not see representative thumbnails in the library of the documents just an icon that looks the same for all books/chapters.
I've since moved my desktop reader back to version 7 but I do like reading in DE.
I also prefer the page numbering as seen with version 7 which lists the actual page number as it is in the book and the relative page number to the first page. This is common for me because I have downloadable chapters for my studies.
