User is adding books of the Bible individually. Above link is user's bookshelf sorted for "Anonymous."

Krystal109 | 1086 comments You should message them to get them to stop.

I'm assuming they need to be merged or deleted as well.

Bastiaan Koster (bastionmonk) | 15 comments I think the books/letters in the Bible should also be added individually. They are separate texts, writter by different authors in different times. That many poeple treat them as one is their choice.

I think the database should contain entries like this:

Book of Genesis - by Anonymus, Jahwist?,Elohist? - first published: -500

Gospel of Mark - by Anonymus - 80 AD

First Epistle of Peter - by Anonymus - 100 AD

Furthermore, I think the same should be done with other Jewish/christian writings:

Gospel of Thomas - Anonymus - 110 AD

Book of Enoch - Anonymus - First published: -300, 100 AD

Philip (burnnerman) | 5913 comments I agree that they are technically different books, but this site is not for breaking 1 "book" up into it's individual books. For instance you do not seperate a Volume of books that contains 3 into 1 book.

The only way I think it is valid to add them individually is if you have a copy of the book that is just that book. For instance you can often find copies of John, Psalms, and proverbs as their own individually distributed books.
