    Yeah, it's driving me crazy. The rest of the book and DJ are in really good shape but when I opened it lo and behold there's the name. In pen. It's definitely a replaceable book though so I will probably do that....

    It won't be perfect but.......

    Take a piece of packing tape. Cut the tape to fit perfectly over the name. Fold one end to give you a small lip to grab. Press the tape hard over the name to allow the tape to stick. Wait a couple minutes. Grab the folded end and SLOWLY pull up. Repeat until all ink is gone.

    Yes, you will have a rough patch where the ink used to be, but it will be gone. Not perfect, but it really works.

    My First Edition Night Shift has the owner's name on the front board, underneath the DJ flap. Doesn't bother me at all. It may not be worth the same amount as a Fine copy, but the book is in excellent shape and they are getting harder to come by.

    I had a previous owner's name on a 1/1 Gunslinger, so I removed it using Tipp-Ex.

    Coincidentally I just learned about one that Yegor speaks very highly of. Ive always wanted to try having a book re-bound (right word?). Seems like a lot of fun. Plus weve got the master of rebinds right here on TDT that I can bug for tips.

    Not worth a 30 book for sure. A more valuable book could be saved by having a professional replace the offending page.

    When the writing isn't too bold, erasing the area could help. What you are really doing is damaging the book to an acceptable level in order to remove the writing. When the writing is too bold/deep, that isn't really an option. Even trying to erase pencil can be problematic.

    Not to be a dick (while being one), but the page with writing on it doesn't appear to be the FFE. Isn't the pastedown orange? If so the FFE will be orange as well, since it's the same piece of paper.

    Not to be a dick, but the writing appears to be on the FFE, not the pastedown.
    FFE stands for Free (as in not pasted down ) front endpaper. The term is "non-binding", as in it could be the backside of the pastedown, or the first page to follow.
    A professional could replace either or both. Of course it's aways a CBA (cost benefit analysis ).

    The front and back of the book both have endpapers. Half of the endpaper is pasted down to the board and half isn't. The half pasted down is often referred to as the pastedown and the half that isn't pasted is referred to as the free endpaper. So we have a front endpaper consisting of the front pastedown and the front free endpaper and a rear endpaper consisting of the rear pastedown and rear free endpaper.

    Any page that isn't a part of the endpaper is not referred to as an endpaper. It could be referred to as a flyleaf.

    It appears to me that the endpaper for that book is orange. If so, the free endpapers are also orange.

    Perhaps I'm seeing orange that isn't there.
