Laura Patriot Games (Jack Ryan, #2) by Tom Clancy ???


message 2: by Laura (new)

Laura Love Lines (Love Lines, # 1) by Diana Nixon ??

In order to become available at public domain, the author must be dead 50y ago.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public_d...

Please do not misunderstand the GP's role on the public domain basic rules.

Laura Surfing in Stilettos by Carol E. Wyer (Goodreads Author) ???

Laura Swan Song by Robert R. McCammon ???


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Thanks for noticing, Laura; I'll clean the list.


message 6: by Laura (new)

Laura Thanks dear Susanna.


message 8: by Leah (new)

Leah The Legend of Sleepy Hollow graphic novel by Bo Walton? Probably not a Gutenberg book, although they likely have the Washington Irving work.

Certainly not, you're absolutely right. Book #133 being deleted.


message 10: by Leah (new)

Leah I'm guessing that's not the Gutenberg Project's translation of the Kama Sutra, either. It looks as if most of the links in this list go to editions other than Gutenberg's, and while it may not matter much for some, for others, it definitely would.

Leah Yes, Gutenberg has it, but the edition in the list is a later translation published in 1994 by Park Street Press.

Susanna do you have any idea concerning this particular issue - see msg #8 from Leah? If we delete this book, all votes will be lost.

Laura Leah wrote: "Yes, Gutenberg has it, but the edition in the list is a later translation published in 1994 by Park Street Press."

Lets find out how to fix this problem, just wrote Susanna's opinion on this issue.


message 15: by Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (last edited Jul 28, 2015 08:57PM) (new)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I would not remove novels who otherwise qualify but have the different cover and edition (from Gutenberg) on this list.

Because all the editions of the novel are combined together (or are supposed to be), and every time someone adds a more popular edition of the novel, and the votes are combined together, the "winner" of the combine will be the edition that is more popular. Which is probably not going to be the Gutenberg edition.

You can't change the edition without eliminating all the votes, and I am very reluctant to do that for a novel which otherwise qualifies.

Very true Susanna, may thanks. Leah, lets leave as it is.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads If y'all spot a book that doesn't qualify, I'll be happy to nab it, though.
