>Order a used book>Comes covered in mug stains
>>20367661When you think about it, mug stains are the least offensive kind of stains.
>>20367669less offensive than gum stains?
>>20367661Happened to me. Get a baby wipe and lightly rub. Works a charm everytime. I've had second hand books go from 'used' or 'acceptable' to 'very good' just from this method alone.
>>20367671Gum as in chewing gum or some toothless grandpa confusing his books for a sandwich?
>>20367661It could be worse
>>20367713I bet this was a real knee-slapper when it was in your head.
>order a used copy of Nabakov's Speak Memory>inside there are someone's family photographs used as bookmarks
>>20368011I thought it was funny
>>20368011I gave a chuckle
amazon hate thread?
>>20367669Yeah, better than that booger you find on page 54. Or that unidentified stain that appears to be some kind of dried blood.
>>20367990What do people expect? This is like buying used Playboy.
>>20368011One day I will manipulate my children into setting this joke up so I can deliver that punchline. It was great.
My favorite is when the used book has an inscription like "To Jim from Doris, '77" and clearly only the first chapter was ever read.
>>20367990What a weak load.
>>20367661>>20367990How much do you guys pay for these?
>>20367661>buy used book>has complex notes written inside>last reader was smarter
