My book muck up, just me??!

(This is me, a lot!)

I feel like such an idiot!

So, probably about 10 months ago I bought Cinder by Marissa Meyer from Amazon in ebook format. I’d had a giftcard and was all excited and bought all the books!

I hadn’t read, until now.

I picked up my kindle, opened it and the Amazon prompt said it had 38 pages. I was like whaaaaaat?

Must be a mistake.

So I carried on.

Then I was greeted by the sight of a lot of foreign words that I didn’t understand.

I sat in a state of confusion for a couple of minutes.

I flipped to the front.

I’d bought the DUTCH EDITION!!!!

How did I not notice this? It plainly says Dutch edition in the description!

I put it down to a busy, hectic life and not anything to do with my sanity!

Have you ever done this?!!!

Please let it not just be me!!!

  1. I haven’t done this exactly, but I have downloaded versions of books not in English from the library before. Maybe you can return it for the English version? I would ask customer service. It probably happens all of the time!

  2. ha! I’ve not bought versions in an unexpected language, but i have often times purchased a book I already owned. Either because I wasn’t sure if I had it already, or I flat out forgot that I had previously purchased it.

  3. 😂 That is hilarious and while I have never bought a book in the wrong language I have accidentally bought books I already own that I want to read and I have bought the wrong versions of books before!!!

    1. 😂😂 another thing I seem to do is buy a book that my friends are talking about and realise I have no idea what is going on……then find it’s book 2 or 3 in a series!!!!

  4. hahahah! It may be the universe giving you a sign that you should learn dutch 😛 It has never happened to me BUT I just bought a book that says “Illuminated Letters, ornaments for Xmas” and I thought it was an educational book on how to draw illuminated letters with “ornamentation” for Xmas… turned out it as a book with cardboard pages, and you could “pop out” from it ornaments to hang on your tree *facepalm*
