I was adding the book Winter rose by Jennifer Donnelly to my wish list and noticed that there are multiply paperback copies of this book listed (but not available) with a publication date of 2006...... What confuses me is this book isn't even available for release until this August and only on hardcover format. Are these false listings??

Sounds like you might be confusing The Winter Rose and The Wild Rose. These are two different books, both by Jennifer Donnelly. The former was released a few years ago; the latter will not be released until August this year.

I see multiple versions of that book in the system with various publication years. So the one you are looking for is probably a reprint. Amazon also shows varous versions of it over the last few years.  This is not a new book.

It's been issued as hardcover before. Also it's not uncommon for books that have originally been released in paperback to have a hardcover release later. This is usually because a series has become really popular and an author has proven themselves.  It frequently happens when they get a new book of hte series released the first time in hardcover.  The publisher will go back and reissue earlier books in hardcover that were only released in paperback before.

Looks like the 2009 trade edition is currently on sale at Amazon for $10.87 ISBN: 978-1401307462
