Issue with Publishers!

Heya,

So today I had an appointment scheduled and I arrived a little early. Luckily, there was a thrift store right next door. That’s a book lover’s dream; at least it should be! Everyone loves cheap books don’t they? 

So I hit the store and I got some great books for .99 each! (list below) So a bit later, I posted in one of my FB bookclub groups and gushed about one of the books that I got. Inferno by Dan Brown.

Lo and behold…I was told that the ONE book that I was excited about the most….Is A PART OF A SERIES!!!! What!? Why didn’t the book tell me that?

I just don’t understand why it is so easy for some books to have “Book One of…..series” or simply a numbered order inside of the book, and then it’s so hard for other books to do it. I opened the book at the thrift store and read the inside, it sounded soooooo good so I immediately put it on the buy stack. Since I was getting several I bypassed on the other books by the same author that were on the shelf.

Turns out…a few of the ones I saw on the shelf WERE APART OF THE SERIES! But I didn’t even know. The book, Inferno, is actually number 4 and didn’t mention anything inside the flap or any of the pages.

Why!? Why!? Why!?

As a relief, I’ve been told that I can still read and enjoy the book without having read the others first. Well, GOOD!!! Because I was already 20 pages in when I posted.

Anyway, that’s one of my issues with publishers or book makers or book designers or cover editors or WHOEVER is responsible for this travesty!
