A friend of mine recently gave me some books to post on here. I was flipping through one and it has a page that was not cut right. The bottom corner is folded but if you unfold it then it hangs over the book. Should I try cutting it to make it look like the other pages or leave as is? Thanks.

I have seen that before..........I would just leave it as it is.....if you cut it then someone might decide you damaged the book and want their credit back.

I'd just leave it.

I've seen it a lot. If it's a keeper book I cut the pages down myself, otherwise I just leave it.

If it was missing part of the page or the text, then I'd not post it.   As long as the text is there, it's fine.

Since that is an error in publishing/binding, if the book is still in print, you can try contacting the publisher, explaining the situation and getting a replacement copy.  It does not always work, but it is an option.
