This page: Lost in a Good Book V2.1 (US Edition)
To upgrade to LIAGB V2.1, please follow the instructions below:
As is customary with early book releases, there are a few bugs that made it through the rigorous testing procedures for which Fforde books have not become legendary. The following instructions allow you to update your edition to an all new V2.1.

1: Editions covered by this upgrade: All Viking hardback editions. ON NO ACCOUNT attempt to upgrade any advanced Readers copies or US softback editions; a 'deep text crash' may result which will render your book unreadable and may well wipe out all the planet's fiction.

2: Earth the book by touching it lightly against a dictionary.

3: If you are running your library on the outdated SCROLL V7.3 or PAPYRUS 2.8, please upgrade immediately to BOOK 7.3 which is available by downloading HERE and is now bundled with PageGlow™ and AutoPageTurnDeluxe™ at no extra cost.

4: If you are running the Beta Version of BOOK V9 or "SUPERTEXT™" as it is known and have Anti-GrammasitePro™ or ReadZip™ activated, please disable before upgrade. Third party hardware ancillaries such as bookmarks, pressed flowers, old bus tickets, prophylactics, etc, must also be removed.

5: Using a fine black pen make the following corrections:

6: Go to page 150 and change 'Sydney' to 'Tokyo' in the sentence: '..then to New York, DeepDrop to Sydney and finally another overmantle to Auckland.' As we find out on the following pages, Thursday drops from London to Sydney; the New York DeepDrop only goes to Tokyo.

7: Go to Pages 272 and where Spike is referred to as being with SO-27, please change to SO-17. Typo.

8: Go to page 310 and where it says:

"so I could have brought in a fleet of Harrier jump jets and the entire Ringling brother's circus and no-one would be any the wiser"

replace with:

"so I could have brought in a squadron of Hurricanes and the entire Ringling brother's circus and no-one would be any the wiser".

Jet engines, unfortunately, do not exist in Thursday's world. At the time that Miss Havisham made this comment, she wasn't aware of the fact.

9: Go to page 279 and where it says: "..a lone girl dressed in a Victorian dress, bonnet and shawl..' replace with: "..a lone girl dressed in a Georgian dress, bonnet and shawl.." Sense and Sensibility was published in 1811 when George III was on the throne. Yes, that one, the mad one.

10: Go to page 236 and where it says: "put through the shedder'' replace with: "put through the shredder'' Someone dropped an 'R' ... (My thanks to Nick Allan for this one)

11: When you have finished the corrections reactivate the book by closing it and then turning it cover uppermost.
