EL312: Pagination alert!

While searching for a unique term to identify for this week, I came across a really bizarre problem with my Bedford, and I'm wondering if anyone else's book is the same.

My pages are numbered as follows:
...15, 16, 19, 20, 17, 18, 21, 22...

Ahh! I freaked a little when I noticed this. It also puts off the alphabetical order of the beautiful literary bible. Sad face.

UPDATE (9:11pm): I also discovered another pagination error. This is the sequence:
...23, 24, 27, 28, 25, 26, 29, 30, 31, 32, 35, 36, 33, 34, 37, 39, 40, 43, 44, 41, 42, 45...

I'll let you know if I find more. Man, this is depressing me... I was just trying to do my homework, and the whole numerical system gets lambasted before my very eyes. Again: sad face.

There may be a reason why I didn't assign page numbers in this book! ;)

Valerie and Tiffany both checked their books (to calm me, somewhat), and their books are fine!

My book is just weird. How sad. This is bad incident #2 for this particular book. (The first incident being that I ordered the brand new book online and it got crushed in shipping... The company, who shall remain nameless, said they'd refund me 10% and they haven't done so yet.)

Deep breaths Karissa! Don't panic! Remember, if it gets too bad I live just down the hall. You are free to use my book whenever you need to.
