My Book is Out If You Can Find It

It looks like Amazon.com is sinking on my list of favorite sites. First my editor told me that the publisher had to manually enter the release date into Amazon.com for my book, because it defaulted to the UK release date. Now, when I search Amazon for either Frommer’s Budapest and the Best of Hungary or the title without Frommer’s, the page with the 7th edition appears. To find the current 8th edition, you either have to be intuitive enough to click “other editions” or specifically type in 8th in the search box. If you want to find it, click here.

If you go to Barnes and Noble online here, and type in Ryan James in the search box, you will find Frommer’s Europe and Frommer’s Eastern Europe, two books for which I wrote the Hungary chapters followed by a boxed set of Tales from the Crypt, but nary a fully authored Budapest book. Why the Tales…is there, I have no idea, but it would make a great title for my memoirs. To find my most current book, you have to type in Frommer’s Budapest, but they too are showing the UK publication date as you can see here

Of course, you can order it directly from Frommer’s. Click here. Getting it locally will save you shipping charges, but if they don’t have it on the shelves yet, here is the ISBN number: ISBN-13: 9780470551264
