Project Arcade print quality
« on: April 24, 2008, 08:20:35 pm »
I've used Saints book for quite some time now but always had to borrow it from the library. A few months back I ordered a copy for myself and last week I finally had a chance to get it from the bookshop. To my dismay, the paper and print quality of this copy is much less then the one I had from the library. The pages seem thinner and on some the print is barely legible. Is there a second, lesser quality print or is it just me?  :dunno

And the Lord spake, saying, 'First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then, shalt thou count to three. No more. No less. Three shalt be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, nor either count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three.

I'm not aware of any second runs or lesser quality editions. I'd guess, but do not know for certain, that you ended up with a bad copy. I'd ask if they can send you a replacement?

I will, but the problem is that the local bookstore has to order it in the US which took them long enough the first time.

Maybe it's a 'bootleg'?  I know while in college, some of the students would order 'bootleg' textbooks from India...  they'd be different, soft cover instead of hard, and lacking all copyright information.
