This is a strange question. I just started Cat's Paw Inc. A Brown Bag Mystery From Council Oak. Long Title. I am reading it for the Read Around the U.S. challenge for Oregon.
I could only find it on Goodreads by the author or ISBN number. Why? Because Goodreads (and others) has the title Incorporated.
Cat's Paw, Incorporated
But that isn't how it is on the cover. Is this correct and if not how does it get changed. Oddly at the top of each page of the book it is spelled out.
My library has it Inc, Amazon has it spelled out, Stop Your Killing Me has is abbreviated.
I have always gone by how the title is on the cover of the book. Wouldn't this make it harder for people to track down?
Thoughts and opinions please.

Well, when there's an abbreviation like Mr. or Mrs. in the title, it's usually not spelled completely in a description of the book. So, it seems odd that they would do it in this one instance. I don't know how you would email a GR librarian. Is anyone here a GR librarian?

We do have one goodreads librarian in the group.

Yes, I'm librarian ;) If you want, I ask this question at the librarian group.

I'm just curious about why this is the case. There is another book (a sequel) by the same author called
Dogsbody, Inc: A Mystery
where it doesn't occur.

It was a data error (when the book was added). It's already fixed (and the series is defined).

Wow! You guys are fast. Thanks. I thought I was missing something. :)
I'm halfway through and enjoying the book.
