Synopsis

When Robert brings three used classics to Book Traders Book Store to exchange, he thinks he's the victim of an unfortunate error: the pages of the book they've given him in return are blank. But when the "error" repeats itself, Robert realizes it's by design; they're removing the pages of classic books and replacing them with nothing but white pages. As his protests fall on deaf ears and a stream of satisfied and willfully oblivious customers come in to trade for more blank books, it's up to Robert to strike back on behalf of readers everywhere.
