I just looked up books by Diane Mott Davidson and two of her new books, Sweet Revenge, and Fatally Flaky to be published in 2009 have a CD version, a hardback, a paperback and then one that has Sweet Revenge LP or Fatally Flaky LP. (But on the book information page they call it a paperback. See link.

I'm not sure what that means. Can anyone help? The only LP I know is a black vinyl disc that requires a turntable, arm and needle. Have I lost anyone there?? Boy I feel old!!

I'm 25 and my guess would be long-playing (as in the record) too.  Maybe large print?

LOL Now I have to dust off some vinyl and toss it on later just to wax nostalgic (ha...get it? wax nostalgic?)

I'm only 28 but I know all about the value of vinyl records vs. all the new fangled gizmos they've got.   Nevermind the new fangled junk they try to pass off as "music"!

LP is indeed Large Print :)

Carolyn--

The book you linked to is a Large Print edition.  I'll edit the record so it makes more sense.

Cheers,

Catt

ETA: The update has gone through, so hopefully the listing makes more sense now.
