Please revert to the previous version of Read if possible (v77) and
check if it works.
I'm trying to reproduce this, but I'm at a conference at the moment
and can't download vm images.
Also, regarding Project Gutenberg EPUBs, they are quite shoddy, so we
should really consider whether including them is a nice idea (I can
figure out some of the legal issues, but in such a situation it may be
prudent not to include any EPUB at all)
