Not happy with the books themselves, but the novel is amazing

I hope to save someone else some time because I couldn't find this info when I purchased it. This set comes with the following MASS MARKET paper back books ISBN
Dune Messsiah: 978-0-593-09823-3
Children of Dune: 978-0-593-09824-0
Mass market paperbacks are normally made cheaper, with thinner paper, and are smaller in size. For most books that's ok as long as you know what you're paying for. For the first book, Dune, the book is so long, that when they shrink it down it actually gets hard to hold and flip through because it is so thick. I went back and purchased the non mass market paperback, so the standard paperback (ISBN 978-0-441-01359-3) and I HIGHLY recommend that for everyone. It seems to have slightly better quality paper and most importantly it is bigger, and therefore thinner, and much nicer to hold and read. The downside is that ACE books does not offer the remaining books in the original series (2-6) right now except in mass market version, so the books won't all be the same size on your bookshelf.
See my photos for size comparison between this set of mass market paperback books and the regular paperback.
