But I did manage to buy 3 books: 2 novels, 1 reference

I've had it up to my eyeballs with going to buy books and finding out the paperbacks that LOOK like they might be a lengthy read are in fact, not. The font is giant, to make the books look like they're worth the fairly subtantial price one pays for paperbacks nowadays. Some of these book look like they are 3 or 4 hundred pages but if you read them you find they're only worth a single sit down and read session.

At a time where conservation is necessary why are we putting up with this waste?

It's sort of in the same vein as the food companies that are putting things in smaller boxes to fool you into thinking the prices haven't changed. But they have.

Oprah needs to get herself yelling at publishers. That seems to be the only force that makes companies sit up and listen.
