Just opened a parcel from Amazon and saw this. Sure, everyone makes typos, but on the spine of a book?
a whole chain of people should be in the shit for that. Sweet lord. That puts anything I've seen thus far to shame.
Not that the book deserves any better.
I'm just not a DH Lawrence fan in general, ever since I read "Lady Chatterley's Lather."
next to 'Sonse and Sensibility'.
That's amazing! I wonder if you got a one of a kind or if there were a few thousand made. If so I would love to meet the idiot who sent that to print.
to find out it had FIFTY pages missing.
I bought a book once from one of those because it was a new hardback that was on sale for about £2. I did wonder why it was so cheap but ordered it anyway.
All was well with it until I got about 100 pages in and realised that a chunk of about 30 pages were repeated twice, so there were effectively 30 pages missing. I didn't even realise straight away, it was only once I'd read a couple of pages I thought somehting seemed strange.
