Hi everyone! I'd first like to thank Francis for the Hemingway question. I have a paperback copy of A.S. Byatt's Still Life published by Collier Books. Is it normal to have pages 375 to 384 at the start of the book or is this a misprint. A friend of mine told me about another book by a mystery...

What kind of eraser to use? by David Ames
I bought a current statistics textbook at a favorable price. When it arrived, I saw that one chapter was greatly underlined in red pencil. The paper is the usual slightly shiny paper that you see in college textbooks nowadays. Any idea which type of eraser to use? I also looked for an...

What's with fairly recent Modern Library prices? by Gene Mierzejewski
