If pages are missing, and I'm not speaking of blank pages here, but
pages from the text, then obviously it should be rejected. But the
vast majority of us will not, and have been told not to reject books
due to lack of page numbers or inaccurate page numbers. I thought it
said that books in the daisy format were repaginated anyway. Anyway,
you're doing fine I'm sure. Just keep doing what you're doing.
