Megalister mayhem – The worst book packaging ever?

Bookselling

Last christmas I bought someone a POD copy of Eddington’s The Mathematical Theory of Relativity. This is what came through my door:

abebooks-megalister-packing

The book was literally hanging out.

The seller was a megalister, naturally. I shalln’t reveal the name (because I can’t remember it – their names blur together: Better2goFLYbOOks2ANYWORLDZ LLC) but this is pretty bad. I once received a (mis-described) Hardback from a megalister in America that came in a plastic bag but that, at least, was intentional.

Here something has obviously gone wrong with their machine but did no one notice? Even Amazon’s freezing, starving packers would have caught that. (Providing the lights were on)
