It seems that the XML is not propertly escaped, so if you have a book with an "&" symbol in it, it will generate invalid XML and you will get an error next time you open the app. To check: 1. Once you get the error, open dslibris.xml in Internet Explorer. 2. If it is valid, you should just see a list of your books 3. If it is invalid, you should get an error, hopefully pointing you in the right direction (eg; Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows) TO FIX - All XML should be propertly escaped, eg; & renamed to & will fix this issue.
