Good Omens

At least I have other books...

My current book I'm reading is the 1950s science fiction novel More Than Human, by Ted Sturgeon, who wrote many novels, short stories, Star Trek episodes, and Sturgeon's Law ("90% of everything is crap"). Wait. Was. My current book was.

There's a binding error. I saw the text jump 28 pages. Out of an approximately 200-page novel. Um, yeah, I can't just skip that and figure out what the heck is going on. I also double-checked and found that no, the pages weren't simply in the wrong part of the book (I've gotten books bound like that before), they're just gone.

Okay. I've placed a hold for a different library copy of More Than Human, figuring by law of averages that this won't be missing 14% of the book's words.
