Hoping someone can help me.

I got my copy of the Discworld Almanak when it first came out. However, in my copy the cover of the book was upside down (not that I'm complaining). I was wondering if this had happened to anybody else, as so far I have been unable to find any mentioned of it.

Hi purpleprincess, mine is the right way up in all respects, where did you buy it from the high St.from the cunning one's shop or online, or specialist dealer, you may have one of a kind there which will make it a rarity indeed. :)

If it's a paper cover, can't you just take it off, turn it the right way, and put it back round the book?

Only with the Dutch version, the Australian version has hard cardboard bindings. Mind you, if you spill one little drop of water on the Dutch version, all the pages get stuck together. :(

Cheers all

I got it as a present from my mother-in-law. She bought it on Amazon when it came out. She was for returning it (thank god she didn't) because the hard cover was on the wrong way. So far haven't been able to find anyone else that got one the same as mine.

My God Purpleprincess! :eek: That's a rather striking avatar you've got. :laugh:

The Almanak is a bit like a DW diary. It came out in 2005 (possibly - can't be bothered to check) and has loads of info about DW in and when is the best time to plant cabbages and all the star groups etc etc.

Thanks. Can you use them as toilet paper if you don't like it?
