Dominick (dominickgrace) | 118 comments This book,
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/9...
is listed as paperback. I have in my hand a book with this cover image, isbn, page count, and publisher, but it is hardback. Do the paperback and hardback editions have the same isbn, or is there an error with this listing? I have checked worldcat but perhaps do not know how to use it well enough to be able to answer this question.

I checked with Amazon and Worldcat and changed Book Format to Hardcover.
Thanks for noticing.

Liz, it's always good to leave a change comment (at the bottom of the edit page), especially with edits like these (format changes, cover changes, etc.) :)
