The Outsiders picture

Revealing mistake: When Two-bit Mathews returns from the hospital gift shop with a copy of "Gone With The Wind", he hands the book to the nurse asking her to make sure that Johnny gets it. The book he hands her is an obviously used paperback with the upper front top right corner and pages all bent back. Shouldn't a gift shop sell NEW items? The book is only shown from the non-title side so they could have used any paperback for the prop as long as it looked like it wasn't several decades old.
