Received a book that should have been Large Print but was not.  It was wish list book with a lot of people wishing for it.  I marked it as a RWAP  but will I got to number 1 on the wish list or to the end of the pile??

 

Do I have to return the book?

No, you do not have to return the book.  Unless they pay an extra credit for it to be returned.

Yes you should be returned to the top of the WL line.

As I'm sure you know - there are Large Print books and LARGER print books.  Most (if not all) of the Large Print books are published by Thorndike.  I've noticed that most of the Larger print books seem to be love-inspired or books similar to that.  I'm so glad that there are more books that are Large Print being marked as such on PBS.  Take care and sorry you didn't get the book you want.   Hopefully you'll get your credit back.  Pat

Bet they just posted by the title and not ISBN.  It is still a RWAP and no you do not need to return it unless they give you the credit.

That first one is not in the system as a Large Print book. If the ISBN had matched it would not have been a mis-posting. I don't have time to do a data edit. I will post it in the data forum to see if someone has time to look at it and do a data edit since the publisher seems to indicate it is probably a dedicated ISBN.

I just did a data edit on the book so it will say Large Print soon.

Since it's not listed here (yet) as a Large Print book, it's a RWAP --> "wrong book" because the ISBNs don't match.
