Glitches Fixed in J.K. Rowling’s ‘Casual Vacancy’ E-Book Version

Though sales have been good and steady, J.K. Rowling’s first adult novel was not released without some glitches. According to Mashable, the e-book versions of The Casual Vacancy had text so small, it was unreadable, and readers were not able to enlarge it.

The novel’s publisher, Hachette, has since taken the blame for the glitch and fixed the problem.

However, it seems the formatting glitch was one of several problems readers had with the The Casual Vacancy. Readers took to social media to complain about the price of the e-book ($17.99, as opposed to the typical $12.99) and the content itself. The Casual Vacancy is selling well, but not getting the rave reviews Rowling likely expected.

Have any of you bought or read the book yet? I’m about to put it on hold for myself at my library.

Get The Casual Vacancy in hardcover for $20.90.

Or — now that the glitch has been fixed — get it on your Kindle for $14.99.

  3. Wow.. that is expensive for an e-book. The hardcover here is expensive too, 110 bucks. So I dont think I would be buying the book anytime soon.
