Mort Misprint

Postby Lenthil » Tue Aug 17, 2010 11:01 am

Now, I was just quietly reading my recently bought book Mort, when suddenly at page 48 the book starts all over again! This wouldn't be such a big problem, if it would simply continue there after, but if you reach page 48 again, it continues with page 97.

Help? Is this common with one print, or is this a new phenomena? What should I do? I really want to just read the whole book...

Oh and, please don't spoil ;) I intend to read the whole book one way or another. Also, I'm quite new to the Discworld, I've only read 4 books so far and I love it (like anyone else here, I presume...)

Hi lenthil :) Your book's duff. Sorry!

If it's recently bought though, a refund shouldn't be out of the question?

The problem is, I bought it at a festival without a receipt, so I wouldn't know how to get a refund...

Erm... Anyone interested in a misprint?

Well, there's that too. But I live in the Netherlands, do they cover other countries too?

Welcome to the site, Lenthil! :D

It's really annoying when something like that happens and more annoying as the person who sold it probably knew it was a duff copy. :evil: I hope you manage to get a replacement copy easily.

You might want to try somewhere like Play.com where they have copies for as little as £2.49 with free delivery to Europe.

That happened with my old copy of going postal. And I didn't notice untill my second read through (Blame lack of sleep and caffine)

Don't return it!

There MUST be a market out there for misprinted Discworld books, just as there is for misprinted stamps and currency. This may be your retirement someday!

Hellooo and welcome Lenthill! :D I was wondering the same as Raisindot since misprinted stamps and some other misprinted items can be worth a few quid.
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

DAMN! And I dropped my misprint in a mud puddle by accident while camping.
