I've been trying to be patient, but now I'm asking for help. I've had Time to Dance by Karen Kingsbury on my wishlist TWICE. The first one I received was a small paperback, barely bigger than a mass market sized book. It is still categorized at paperback by it's ISBN, but it's much smaller. In fact, it's only about 1/4 in taller than a mass market book! I have it's sequel (as well as all my other Kingsbury books) in full sized paperback, so I'd really like to have the full sized version of this book. SO, I added it to my Wishlist AGAIN. Well, after waiting for many more months, I was granted it. But, when I opened it, it yet again was a the small version. The ISBN is the same for full sized and this smaller sized, so it's hard to tell. So... Does anyone have a full sized copy of this book they'd be willing to send me? I have credits ready, I can order it right away. I'd mail you the smaller copy if you want it, too. I just really would like to have this in it's full sized format! Thank you!! If anyone can enlighten me on how to tell the difference between a small format and full sized format when the ISBN is the same, I'd appreciate that too.... It's very frustrating the publishing companies would do it this way!!!

Kim, I had the same problem in the past. If you click on the book and it comes up, go to the right and click on "other options" then on "Edit book data".  You should see a page with the measurements for the book listed. You won't have to actually edit anything but it will help you find out more about the book.  If not you may have to PM the person before they send it. There may be a copy of the book with a different ISBN that will always be the regular sized PB. I hope this helps. I know it can be frustrating when you are ordering to complete a set of books. I collect Karen Kingsbury as well.

Could you put a requestor's condition on Karen Kingsbury books that states you're looking for full/trade size pb?  I know some people are scared away by RC's so I don't know if that's a good option. I'm sorry. I know that must be frustrating. Hope you find one.
