I am trying to find Everywhere That Mary Went by Lisa Scottoline.  I would like it in Hardcover.  But the only hardcover one I can find is large print.  I don't want large print.  Can anybody help me find one that isn't large print.  Thanks!

According to Amazon, it is only available in large print in a hardcover. Many popular fiction books like this aren't published in hardcover.

I just checked with Fantastic Fiction, (http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/) which is a great source when you are looking for a particular binding like you are...they show that it was published in a library binding ISBN 9781417670383 but that is not available at PBS currently.

Hunter, that book is a large print version, which she does not want.

The library only had the large print version of a book my daughter needed for school. 

It was not that bad.  I'm likely biased because I was happy that I could read it without my reading glasses.  

Our vision starts changing in our 40's and suddenly it's hard to read labels and eventually books :(

Our vision does not change; the size of the printing does. I am finding that as I get older, the size of the printing on everything starts to get smaller and smaller. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. devilcool
