Give Me Patience

Page 250 -270 back to 269 then onto 253....

268 gives way to 276 then, once again back to 270. Actually there are two 270s...actually, no. that's not true either. the second 270 is an opening page for chapter 22... no page number on those...but it is prior to 270...yet 270 doesn't complete the sentence sooooo it's obviously not the right page either.

Why would the library keep a book like this? I mean, the author knows about this! It was published 3 years ago and I imagine, she went through hell sending out sorries and we'll get it right next times. I'm picking the kids up at school and going to The Old Book Barn. They have a copy and hopefully, I'll find one that's correctly paged.

.....oh look! I found page 45!!! It's in 276s place. Ack. LOL

  1. LOL! That's funny but also very, very frustrating. At least it's a library copy. i once bought The Grapes of Wrath with some thrity pages missing and I couldn't even return it since I bought it in another country while travelling.

  2. That happened to me once, sort of, with a Baby Sitters Little Sister. A bunch of pages turned up in the middle, upside down. It was...odd.

    Also, thanks so much for your comment on my blog. I wasn't sure if you were kidding about getting my blog entries delivered to your inbox or not--hehe, either way, I'm so glad you like it! :)

  4. LOL. That's only happened to me once with a book I bought from WalMart. I think the pub was sending out corrected copies but I never went back to exchange it. It didn't seem like I had missed much from the lost pages:)
