A type of paperback book produced and distributed for sale in newsstands, supermarkets, and discount stores rather than in trade bookstores. The copies are usually of small size and printed on poor quality paper. Mass-market paperbacks are often works of fiction published in series in a specific genre and aimed at a specific gender or age group. See also: trade paperback.
