I got my copy of the Super Deluxe CoH about a week ago (#34, dunno, might have bought it from a frequent of this site) and I love it more than I thought possible to love a book. but there's one thing about it that, and this is pretty funny, I feel sorry for it about (instead of concerned for it's market value), it's bookmark. Mine is a frayed piece of string (silk, lest i be mistaken) that is pulled horribly at it's base. In general terms it seems way below the standards of the book (i mean each page fells like about 3 regular pages perfectly glued together(i simply love this book!!)) What does anyone else think about this bookmark issue? if indeed i am not the only one who got the goofy type?
thanks all!

All i am interested in is if they were all indeed the skinny, thin, ribbons? mostly i just want to know if everyone else's has started to unravel.


I did buy mine off of e-bay, but i am almost positive the gentleman I purchased it from hadn't previously taken it out to read by the fire, and likewise I have handled it as little as possible, although i do gawk over it constantly!!

I am still waiting to get my copies (living in the US, I am dependent on a friend in the UK who is travelling here to visit soon. Unfortunately the trip keeps getting postponed, now planned for February. Saves on shipping costs though!)

I would definitely contact Harper Collins about getting a replacement. The bookmarks shouldn't fray like that, straight out of the box. They will give you a higher number than the one you currently have, so if #34 has special meaning for you keep that in mind (but I think a nice bookmark has more lasting value than a particular number in this case.)

thank you for the advice. What's the best way to contact HarperCollins? Also, in order to exchange the book, will it matter that I do not have a receipt?

I just thought, I live in the US! Does anyone know if HC will only ship replacements to the UK, like they did with the book? I guess this could create somewhat of a problem. Unfortunately I don't have any friends that live in or are visiting the UK.
