Aside from the content of the book, which is everything I'd hoped it would be, it arrived with a brown stingy like glue dried onto the cover, back and sides of the pages. Hardly what one expects from a 'new' book. Very disappointed by this.

Needless to say I will not be using wordery again I'm afraid!
