Format: Format Kindle
I got this specific e-book from Barnes and Noble, but have gotten other music from Amazon, and the formatting on both apps seem to suck. I think it's because they were likely formatted to fit a 7-inch screen, and that is even too small to see anything, and then on larger tablets, the 7-inch formatting isn't updated. It's been over two years since Kindle and Nook have come out, so I really think the people programming this at both places should have figured out how to format sheet music properly on their respective apps. If this is ever fixed, I'll update this review and give this the 5 stars the music no doubt deserves if I could see it, but until then I'm leaving this at one star in hopes that this ridiculous formatting issue is fixed as soon as possible.
Update July 27, 2014: Earlier this week I upgraded my phone to a Note 3, and since it is easier to read on the larger screen, I was downloading reading apps on it, including both Kindle (my main reading app) and Nook. I downloaded this on there with my Nook app to see how it looked, and I accidentally deleted it from my library (Barnes and Noble's buttons are much less clearly labeled than Amazon's - "Archive" apparently is equivalent to Kindle's "Delete from Device," and just "Delete" is equivalent to Kindle's "Delete from Library"). Since it was a bit cheaper on Amazon anyway and I was frustrated with Barnes and Noble, I decided to re-purchase this book from Amazon, and to my surprise, when I opened it on my tablet, it had large, readable notes! I have a few other single song sheet music from Amazon, and though they do not appear to be fixed, the fact that this one is appearing fine is a good sign that they are working on making e-sheet music better! (P.S. You can also adjust the text size, but it only adjusts the text size of the title - it would be nice if it also adjusted note size, but hopefully in a future update.)
So now I definitely highly recommend buying this book. Also, buying e-music books in general is probably a good idea, since if companies like Amazon and Barnes and Noble realize that they are in demand, they will probably put more time and money into making a better experience for using them.
