It’s been less than 24 hours since I bought a book. In fact, I bought five books. I just saw them lying there, in the bargain bin at my local supermarket and I couldn’t help myself. I had to give them a good home.
They’d been marked as “Mängelexemplar”, damaged goods because something had scratched their back a little. It’s just a few grooves we’re talking about, not the entire back cover missing.
