The first time I got a book that shouldn’t have made it past inspections at the end of the assembly line, it came from a big chain bookstore. I drove back to the store and swapped it. Easy peasy.

Now, I have one from Amazon. It’s a pita to package it up, send it back and wait for a replacement that may or may not have the exact same problem. The text is at an angle and the page numbers, book title and author are printed on a conveyor belt somewhere instead of on the paper pages, but technically I could still read it.

If I send it back, am I being unnecessarily picky? Am I the kind of monster who dumps flawed toys for Rudolph to rescue?
