Halvor (Raknes) | 4770 comments Mass Market Paperback

Abcdarian | 23355 comments Done.


Halvor (Raknes) | 4770 comments Or perhaps not… Perhaps none of Norwegian paperbacks fit this description. It's half a centimeter higher than your stand English-language MMP..

Abcdarian | 23355 comments So is it back to paperback then?


Halvor (Raknes) | 4770 comments Reconsidering, yes. Sorry about that!

Abcdarian | 23355 comments No worries; the whole paperback/mass market paperback thing is beyond me. I'm just glad we don't have to sort trade paperbacks as well.

Scott | 24966 comments In the U.S. some publishers (for some reason) put out books that are slightly taller and slightly wider than the previous mass-market paperbacks, but I think they are still considered MMPB. (Also MMPBs I have brought back from U.K. and Australia are slightly larger as well.)

Abcdarian | 23355 comments From what I've read online, it also has to do with paper quality and price point--? Simpler to just call 'em all paperbacks, but then I'm lazy. :-)

Yeah that would confirm them as MM.
