Missing pages... where did they go?

I mentioned this on my LJ last night. I've been reading ANGELS AND DEMONS the last few days and I've been enjoying it. I thought I would because I enjoyed his other book.

Anyway, I'm reading along last night, excited because I'm almost halfway through and caught up in the tension of what's going on, when I get to page 304. Nothing strange there. Except, that the next page, right next to it, happens to be page 321! Okay, seriously, WTF is going on there?

I'm missing pages. In a very important scene. :/ And I can't help but wonder if every one of the paperback editions printed at the same time as mine are the same. Or was it just mine that missed out on these pages? Makes me wonder...

After debating about what to do, I've decided to put the book aside until I get my hands on a copy with ALL the pages. Lol. :D Will keep you posted, and I'll be heading over to my bookshelf to pick something else up soon.

Well, the writing is still going. A little slow, though. Yesterday I managed to hit 53,257 words. Which means I'm on track for, uh, Wednesday's goal. Yep. That's right. I'm about a day behind. Today's goal is 60k. Doubt I'll be reaching that today. But I'll be happy if I can get to say, 56k. That would put me in a good place for Monday. It also means that I get the weekend to ponder about the end. I already know how it's going to go, but need to think out the sequence so that I don't leave anything out.

Well, that's it for today. I've got a few things left on my to-do list. One thing (finishing the first draft) will not happen. The other two, I think I can do.

Have a great weekend!
