Appartenly I have a book that doesn't exist.  Except for the fact that I have read it and have it in my hot little hands. LOL!  Joanne Fluke's Cream Puff Murder in trade paperback size.  I got it from Target but the ISBN did not come up here or on amazon.  I looked it back up on Target's site and it isn't there either.  And it is wishlished as a hardback and a paperback with out ISBN.  I never have come across it before.  Does anybody know why this would happen?

I did put all the information in and posted it.

Your post made me wonder about my copy, because I picked up a trade paperback size too (not from Target though).  Lo and behold, you are right, it doesn't come up in the system.  I hadn't tried it yet, because I haven't read it yet.  Strange?! 

I did notice that the hardcover version in the system has a reg. ISBN but the paperback version has an ISBN of  189395 , which looks like someone posted it through PBS when they didn't find it in the system. 

I notice too that Amazon only has the hardcover version so this must be why.


ETA: OK-- Now try it with ISBN search of 9780758238061 (not by title-still doesn't work that way).
