Here's why it's a problem for me. I buy my eBooks from OReilly, and then I upload them to my google books account (in the Play store) so that I can read them from any of my devices (it retains bookmarks, what page I am on, etc). Google has a 100MB upload size limit.
If that's the correct file size, then that's fine, but I thought that it was worthwhile to ask about it since a jump from 14.7MB to 131.7MB in a single update seems rather extreme. I'm wondering if someone ticked the wrong box somewhere in the export process.

Yes, those file sizes are correct. It's because the images were added as the book went through it's Early Release phase and now that it's final, the size is about 131mb for the ePub. I've been checking in with our ebook team, but they are compressing them as much as they can without compromising the quality of the ebook.
