Book update

Well, Amazon replaced the book and emailed a UPS label for the return. New book arrived.

It was great. Until I got 120 more pages in, when one of the page clusters let go. Yes, same problem, just not in the first cluster.

Time to call the publisher to let them know they have a bad batch out there. The book is Anathem, mass market paperback... So, ahem, perhaps some of my flist can let the author know there is a physical printing of the book that I have to say gives the nice (in terms of the book) atmospheric feel of having to preserve an ancient folio while reading it.

I have paperbacks from the 1960s and much older hardbacks... all of which manage to "hold it together" - kind of sad that a modern paperback is more ephemeral than an ebook.
