    Default Wind Through the Keyhole misprint

    Hi all, I posted this same question before, but in the wrong area. So hopefully now that I've figured out what to do, I can get some help with this problem! I recently purchased a paperback copy of Wind Through the Keyhole from Barns and Noble. When I reached page 150, I was surprised to see that the pages that followed were pages 119-150 all over again, and in place of where page 151 should have picked up, it was page 183 instead. So, I am missing pages 151-182! I've tried looking up to see if this is a common thing, but I've had no luck finding someone with a similar situation! As neat as it would be to have an unique book, it has made reading it a bit difficult! So, my question is this: does anyone else have a copy of Wind Through the Keyhole with similar misprinting? Is this a common issue? If it's not, does that make this a book a collectable, or just a misprinted book I'll have to return? Thanks!

    I don't have an answer for you as to how many copies may have been improperly bound but I don't think it would qualify as a collectible copy. It happens more often than the publishers would like, but whether that makes it common I don't know what their specific policies are, but it might be worth asking B&N if they would replace your copy with one that is correctly bound unless you really want to hang onto the other one.

    I think it's probably no more collectible than one of those two-headed calves at the the fair, though better in that if you choose to keep it you don't have to buy a big freezer.

    Keep it, frame it, and hang it on the wall forever. Then sell it after forever is over and retire.
