“Quality” ? Paperback Book Club

September 30, 2001 at 4:36 pm by Tookish  - 

From Astaldo 44:

I noticed on the page today the piece about Lord of the Rings editions from the Quality Paperback Book Club.

I own these, and they are of absolutely abominable quality. The covers are abstarct designs and not particularly attractive. The bindings seem solid, but I havn’t gotten much use out of them because of their biggest problem – the STAGGERING number of typos. In the first chapter of Fellowship alone there are probably 20 typos that I caught. And I’m sure I didn’t catch them all, not having read LotR nearly as many times as many people have.

These volumes are very sloppily put together and I recommend against buying them most heartily.

Just though that perhaps your readers might like to know.

Ok, only one type-o in this letter, so let’s give the guy a break… 😉
