[bksvol-discuss] Re: missing pages

Cindy,

What a great tip!  I tried to search for a specific page number in the
Search box at Amazon and nothing came up.  Do you know if you have to
search by phrase or if there is a way to do a page number search?

Thanks,
 
Debbie

Georgina,

Someone recently told me that one can check pages, sometimes, on Amazon
if one is allowed to look inside the book, so I tried it.

p. 82 begins: even better than it smelled and belonged to a far
different culinary world than my usual midday ..."

p. 83 begins: explained, "the worst were the kidnappings, where they
would burst into houses and cull the young, beautiful women. ..."

Do a search for those words. If the text is there, then Mayrie is
probably right that the pages are just mis-numbered.

I can request the book and get the pages for you; as Marilyn says it
might take several days but I don't think it will be two to three weeks.

Cindy
