Textbook? Err... not quite.
Textbook? Err... not quite.

I was putting together a wishlist for the Big City book shopping trip I'll be rewarding myself with tomorrow when I noticed this. Some books say "Hardcover" or "Paperback" or "Kindle Edition" or the more generic "ebook." For some reason, the version of Cecilia Grant's A Lady Awakened that I have on my shelves calls it a "Textbook." It's not just this one, either. Fall of a Kingdom by Hilari Bell is also a "textbook." I wonder why? And also, I wish I could fix things like this when I find them.
