Weird. There is no other word for it.

Last night I read Keeping the Moon, by Sarah Dessen. 

I think it was good.  See, the thing of it is (notice my usage of this wonderful Utah-ism) when I got to chapter 7, I kept reading.  Sure I know that's not wierd.  At least, it wasn't until I got to chapter 7 again. 

Say What?  (That's what you're saying)  I read up til chapter 11 and halfway through it I realized that I was reading the same thing I read in chapter 7.  At first I thought, is this some weird alternate reality book?  But then I distinctly remembered it being in the Teen Romance genre.  So, the only weirdness should come from the main character, or the typical mean girl, or the awkward boy.  Right? 

Quickly, I flipped through the book and realized two things:

1.  Chapters 7,8,9 were printed twice and inserted in the book where three other missing chapters should have been.
2.  There was no chapters 4, 5, 6 because they were the missing chapters.

What did I do?  Kept on reading.  By the end of the story, there was one sub-plot that didn't make sense, but other that, I think I got it.  So, as I was saying earlier, I think it was good.

And that isn't just weird that is bizarre.

That is weird. And it's a shame, too, because I liked that book. You should contact the publisher and have them send you a complete book for free.

That's the measure of a great book. You can skip whole chapters and still know exactly what is going on!

I think it's funny you kept reading anyway. You needed your reading fix.

That happened to me with The King of Attolia! (I know, the sacrilege!) I couldn't keep reading. I had to wait and get another copy from Amazon.

Yep. "Weird" is the word I'd use, too. Then I'd use "Dang it."

That same thing happened to me when I read eclipse from the twilight series. I was thinking that I had read the same thing over and over, and realized that my book had inserted a bunch of old chapters. I guess it happens sometimes....that's funny it happened to you, too!:)
