Oh, yes, and to add to that why not buy the paperback on Alibris, viz.:

Jones Diana Wynne.  Dogsbody.        $87.00         
Knopf Bullseye, paperback, [1975], 1990 printing, Almost as New.  

That's a double whammy -- Book Rescue!! via Alibris. How to be cooked and 
double-cooked. It was a mere $67 over on ABE!

The only good thing I have found about Alibris is that they list the keywords 
used, which ABE does NOT, even though the keywords are searchable.
