I enjoy problem solving (Lifehacking). Recently, someone asked me how I would find a torn page (to repair) in a large book. "Large" is the operative word here. It is inconveniently large — 1500 pages.
This one is simple but not easy:
Start at the first page and turn each page until one appears.
There are thirty (30) copies of this book and a good chance that one or more pages in each one is torn. Of the tears I saw, most are less than a couple of cms. along the bottom of the page near the centre.
Question: "How do I find each torn page in each of several large books by the most efficient (easiest and/or fastest) way?"
