Windows 7: Book formats: What is Multiple copy pack?

Book formats: What is Multiple copy pack?

Hi I need to buy a book but the website is selling the book in a format called: Multiple copy pack.

I don't know what this means even after searching internet, I think I have an idea though, is it some kind of e-book?

Here is a link, although this isn't the book I'm after!

Dilbert 2.0: 20 Years of Dilbert by Scott Adams - 9780740777356 at The Book Depository

Hi, as you don't seem to have any replies yet, I have registered myself to see if I can help out (Fridayschild is loving and giving, etc etc)

I don't think that a Multiple Copy Pack is anything to do with e books at all.

I am looking at the same book seller as you and I have just sent them a query to see if they can clear it up but my understanding is that the book probably arrived in one large box/seal rather than each copy being individually sealed or boxed. That is probably why they are a bit cheaper.

If they reply I will come back and let you know. Hope you get what you want.

What does this have to do with Windows 7? It's just a book

As it turns out, it doesn't appear to have anything to do with Windows7, but the OP thought it was an ebook.

Does it REALLY matter than it was a little off topic?

Unfortunately my reply from the book depository wasn't a lot of help to you, op, this is the reply I got regarding 'my book'

I have contacted the publisher of this title and I can confirm that this is a Hardcover book only and is a single copy. Apologies for the confusion. I shall request that our web team change this ASAP

After contacting them again and asking them to explain what the term means I have now had the following reply - I'm not 100% convinced.



A 'multiple copy pack' generally means that it is a set containing several
copies of the same title, sorry for any confusion. In such cases the number
of copies should also be specified

OK, lol. Please let me know what they say, it should be interesting.

Why do I feel like they are trying to hide something? Am I being cynical here?
