you correctly want to find out what is the most common size in your area...

but when you're asking for our help, you're not saying in which area you 
are :-)

and it also depends on the type of book you want to produce and how you 
will print it.

anyway, afaik the DIN A format is not always in use for books... even 
outside of the US... but it depends much on the type of book...
