Book Outlet haul of disappointment

Well my lovelies, it looks like my final post for the year is a gripe.  Sorry bout that, but my Black Friday order finally arrived on the 29th December and I was so excited to open the box and put my new books up on my shelves.  That was until I examined my copy of Fuzzy Nation.  Now not only did the book have a weird call number sticker on the spine (which was a pain to get off!), but when I went to remove the dust jacket to have a look at the naked book cover it was stuck to the inner cover paper.  What the...?  Carefully I peeled back the dust jacket flap and found not only was this cover a replacement cover for the one that had obviously been ripped when removing it, but there was still glue in sections and the paper was torn.  So not happy!

The most annoying thing about it is that it wasn't only the front cover of the book that was affected.  No, same thing has happened on the back cover too!

Plus this big old hunk of glue that annoys me and I still have the problem of figuring out how to remove all this glue crap without damaging the cover.

Oh, and they also charged me a automatic amount for international shipping of $35 yet it only cost them $25 to send!

Not impressed Book Outlet!

Happy Holidays, and all the best for 2015.  I hope your final book hauls of 2014 ended better than mine did! 

Unitl next year,
