"First Among Sequels" USA Editions

To upgrade to TN5/V2.1, please follow 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 TN5/V2.1.

1: Editions covered by this upgrade: All Hodder hardback and Readers club softback editions. ON NO ACCOUNT attempt to upgrade any advanced Readers copies or UK 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3: If you are running your library on the outdated SCROLL V7.3 or PAPYRUS 2.8, please upgrade immediately to BOOK 8.3 which is available by downloading HERE .

4: If you are running the Beta Version of BOOK V9 or "UltraWord™" 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:

i/ Turn to page 27 and where it says: "a possible pack of howlers in the Savenake" add an 'r' to make it 'Savernake'. (Alain Lewis of Tunbridge Wells - previously Swindon)

ii/ Turn to page 30 and where it says: "freewill" add a space to make it 'free will'. (Jennifer Sheffield)

iii/ Turn to page 55 and where it says: "Thriller which is subgenred into Political, Spy and Adventure, has three." add a comma to make it 'Thriller, which is subgenred into Political, Spy and Adventure, has three.'. (Jennifer Sheffield)

iv/ Turn to page 59 and where it says: "Thursday took her hand from the books" add a '5' as this is "Thursday5". (Martha Bode.)

v/ Turn to page 60 and where it says: "Once an essential piece of equiment" add a 'p' to make the correct spelling "equipment". (Morris Collins.)

vi/ Turn to page 62 and where it says: "payfootnoterpayphone" change to "payfootnoterphone". (Rose Hilbert and Jennifer Sheffield)

vii/ Turn to page 63 and where it says: "antennae" change to "antenna". (Jennifer Sheffield)

viii/ Turn to page 77 and where it says: "'I get it,' replied Thursday" add a '5' to the "Thursday". This is a Thursday5 speaking. (Mark Andersen.)

ix/ Turn to page 261 and where it says: '"It was Friday - our Friday, the grunty, smelly one.' remove the quote marks from the beginning of the paragraph as this is narrative, not speech. (Martha Bode.)

x/ Turn to page 273 and where it says: '"user-choice enhancments'"add an "e" to get the correct spelling "enhancements". (Martha Bode.)
