ann: Trade paperbacks are the same size as hardbacks
Ahhh...ok...makes sense...

>>And yes, I was the one who recommended the Bryant & May series. Don't expect anything, especially the characters, to be normal.

LOL!!! I finished the first one last night--I suspected the the good news about 1/2 way through. It's quite a clever approach. Will be starting the 2nd one later this evening. I only ordered the first 3 as I wasn't sure I'd like the series and figured 3 is a good number to try. I will likely be ordering the rest of them soon--my sister gave me a gift certificate to Thriftbooks that is burning a hole in my digital pocket...'-}}

I've given up ordering books from Better World Books until they can fix the biblio-purgatory also known as Baltimore, Maryland--my order arrives there within about 1-2 days of my order having been shipped and then the order sits in Baltimore for more than 2.5 weeks! so it takes 3.5 to 4 weeks for my order to arrive. I finally got tired of it--there is no excuse for the problem--and told BWB that I would no longer order from them and moved my book buying to Thriftbooks--Thriftbooks orders generally arrive within 4-5 days sometimes less.

Have you read any Iain Pears? There is a series of 6 that are quite good...
