I noticed a book type listed as "turtleback."  What is that?

Typically a mass-market paperback that has been rebound as a hardcover.

Wow, I've never seen that before. You learn something new every day! (Well, I do anyway. LOL)  I knew there's a good reason why I read the forums. :)

many of the DK Eyewitness Travel Guides are turtlebacks, except in this case, they aren't HBs.  They have extended coverflaps that can be used to mark places in the guidebooks.

This is a new one to me, too.  Glad to learn something new!
