Letter to the Editor: Bookstore article numbers don’t compute

Editor:

I tried to work out the totals in the table of price comparisons in Amanda Friz’s article (“Bookstore blues” Jan. 25). My totals came out differently from yours.

Moreover, you didn’t mention (in the total of the Beat the Bookstore column) that there is one fewer item-if somebody just looks at the total, then they may be misguided, having seen the total in Beat the Bookstore is less than the U Bookstore.
