Yes, they are valid but ISBN of first one belongs to another book. Second link is okay and the one that should stay.


Krystal109 | 1081 comments I can't find anything that proves this exists and is not just a listing for people to rate as a set:

Please combine with the first item in the series. We can then merge all reviews onto that, instead of losing them.

I'll have to look into this further later.

(If another super has time before I get back to this, please feel free.)

Beth (BethJustBeth) | 1412 comments #457 - One is designated Volume 11, one is designated Volume 12...so they appear to be two different books.

Beth (BethJustBeth) | 1412 comments #458 -- Just not sure...not enough coffee, yet.

#459 -- Got it.

vicki_girl | 2751 comments RE #457:

I looked at the publishers site and that series numbering does not go past vol. 10

http://www.bookclub.kodansha.co.jp/bc...

However, there are volumes past vol. 10, but the numbering restarts. Volume 1 - 10 cover Seasons 1 & 2 of the anime. "Restart" Vols. 1 - 3 cover Season 3 of the anime.

I will merge accordingly.

Mid-creative-process I thought that I’d lost this edition record in a crash; but later (after creating another new edition record & combining it with a previous existing record) it ‘reappeared’!

Sorry,

With thanks

Joe (JoeReaves) | 28 comments http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13... I can't find any evidence that this was ever published, even as a freebie on the author's site, except as part of an anthology.

Does anyone else have information that it has or should it be deleted?

I don't know what the heck this is, but it DEFINITELY needs to be deleted.

I can find no information that says it was published by itself. Merged into the anthology.

Ian (traveller1) | 88 comments New editor, do I put this here? (where have I heard that before?)

to be deleted—the lost book: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/11...

ok. I gave a review of the book above 12 months ago, and now the book is said to be:
"This edition is missing a title and/or author name due to a recent data transition. If you can identify the correct title or author, please rescue this edition."

No idea how this happened, maybe I did something wrong.

However, there is a correct and separate listing of this book in goodreads: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13...

The simplest way of handling this would be to delete the "lost" book? Can this be done?

Ian, it's definitely nothing you did. (See here for a full explanation of what those "Unknown Book"s are.) But now that you've told us what the book is supposed to be, I've added those details back. If you can confirm that the cover image on ASIN B0050K1EZA should match the image on this one, I or someone else can add that to the record, too.

Ema (emastimpy) | 99 comments Super librarians, please delete this book, as I'm not eligible to do it myself:

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/12...

It has a wrong title and no useful info. It's redundant.


message 482: by Ema (last edited Jul 28, 2012 02:49AM) (new)

Ema (emastimpy) | 99 comments And what should I do with this book?

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/11...

Searching for the assigned ASIN, it took me to this page:

http://www.amazon.com/Holiday-Lasts-T...

I'm a new librarian, I don't want to make mistakes and damage this wonderful web-site! :)

it has to be turned into a new/separate book, am I right?


message 483: by Ema (new)

Ema (emastimpy) | 99 comments Super librarians, you may want to delete this book:

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/39...

It has a non-existent URL and no reliable info.


message 484: by Ian (new)

Ian (traveller1) | 88 comments Yes, I can confirm that the two books are the same. My review confirms this. The cover is correct. "Hide in Palin Sight".

Re - 484 - Its the only Russian edition, should be left - have cleaned it up

Ema (emastimpy) | 99 comments Thank you!

Regarding Re 484, it's not the only Russian edition, there are also these ones:

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/55...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/60...
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/67...

I'm not sure that the info on the following web-site is reliable:

Paula (Paulaan) | 4305 comments Re 488 -

Then the Russian editions need to have the titles changed to Russian and the language field set if not set.

They then need to be separated from the rest and just the russian editions combined

Then post back for the editions to be deleted


message 489: by Ema (new)

Ema (emastimpy) | 99 comments Then this job should better be done by a native Russian speaker... Any librarians from Russia?

vicki_girl | 2751 comments Re 484/488/490

I added as much info as I could to the Russian editions. All of the other Russian editions are hardcovers. The one requested for deletion is listed as an ebook. Therefore, I am not going to delete it.


Andrea (andrea_b) | 435 comments Hi! Please merge this edition with the main one:

message 496: by Caro (new)

Caro | 162 comments I think this isbn/book doesn't exist or wasn't in 'print'.

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/97...

The other ebook edition is the only one I have found. The info on this one shows it was loaded by B&N, but the one they have is listed as the ebook edition that's already there. I don't remember ebooks being around in the 1990's so I think this isn't a book that is no longer in print. I don't want to delete it (or probably can't, it would need a super) but I really don't think it's supposed to be there. Help Please?

Chances are it was an edition on B&N, so we would keep it same as any other out-of-print edition. The date looks like it may have been when the book was first published and B&N imported that for the ebook.
