Strange Things You Get From the Library

in story •  9 months ago  (edited)

A while back, I wrote a post about an odd object I found in a library book.

Here's something that actually tops that.

I ordered a particular book through my college library for research, it came in this envelope:

Well, this is odd, I thought, since I've never ordered a book that came in a package like this.

Upon opening it, I quickly discovered what the envelope was for.

The first couple of pages looked fine:

But the spine looked like this:

And the inside looked like the following:

There were even a few places where whole sections of pages were barely attached:

I'm upset at the fact the library sent me this book (it happens to be a very good one, if you get a chance to read it).

I'm just shocked at the fact someone would hurt a book this badly... and yet return it to the library.

P.S. If you're interesting in this book, you can also get a revised version which is cheaper
