Metadata download: Paragraph breaks not working for Google

Bug Description

Calibre 6.2 (noticed in earlier versions, but thought it was a one-off glitch)

Downloading summaries from Google Books fails to render paragraphs breaks.

Steps to replicate:

1. Add a new book. Title: Ride Every Stride, Author: Amy Maltman, Identifier: google:s7NIrgEACAAJ *
2. Disable every metadata provider except Google.
3. Download metadata.

Despite the page showing the summary is multiple paragraphs, Calibre renders it as one block.


Thanks in advance.

calibre doesnt get the actual data from the website, it just does the
search there. Getting the data from there would just lead to google
blocking faster. The data comes from google book's api and there are no
paragraphs there:
