To avoid dueling librarians, I suggest someone start on page 1, someone on page 3, etc.

Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) Looks like I'm hitting a lot of audio books with translator actually being narrator.

Publisher Recorded Books website when you hit browse for books search, as an example, leads me to this site if it helps anyone else http://www.simplyaudiobooks.com/proce...

They do seem all need to move secondary author up, delete the "null", add translator as narrator, then delete translator.

Actually, it looks like they are ALL like that.


❂ Murder by Death  (murderbydeath) Just a reminder for anyone working on this list: don't forget to combine the audio edition with it's mates once it's been fixed.

Just thought I'd mention it since I didn't remember until I'd done a dozen or so of them.... :(

Definitely preferable. The good news is, that even if you forget, it will now show up on the right author's combine page, so another librarian might see the stray editions and combine them.


❂ Murder by Death  (murderbydeath) Yes, I'm hoping for just that for the books whose titles I forgot. Some of them I remembered and went back to combine...

Mauro (mauromdc) | 37 comments Down to 7 pages (350 books). Not all of them were fixed by me ;-)

(I started including descriptions from Worldcat, but stopped, nobody seems to be adding these editions and most of them were merged with more popular editions)

Combined, not merged. But yes, they should pick up descriptions from other editions of their work once combined.

Mauro (mauromdc) | 37 comments yep sorry, combined!!


✘✘ Sarah ✘✘ (former Nefarious Breeder of Murderous Crustaceans) (oosarahoo) | 124 comments Down to 214 books!

I've been adding descriptions to these editions just in case there is no default description from other editions.

If you're looking for info to add at the same time, many of them are on WorldCat, including number of hours -- which gets rounded up to be "pages".


✘✘ Sarah ✘✘ (former Nefarious Breeder of Murderous Crustaceans) (oosarahoo) | 124 comments Will do, many thanks for pointing this out!

How do you round up to get pages?


message 21: by lafon حمزة (new)

lafon حمزة نوفل (lafon) | 3557 comments We go by hours with audio books. So if an audio book is 7 hours 42 minutes we round up to 8 hours, which then becomes 8 "pages".


Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) Uh oh. I have not been doing that. But I do see it in librarian manual already when I looked. I've been just leaving blank but now I know.


message 23: by Mauricio (new)

Mauricio | 2 comments Hello to everyone, I have been adding some of my favorite books to my shelves and I found one with an incorrect ISBN. The book I was trying to find has the following ISBN: 978-849-679-177-0 and the title is: "El Alquimista" by Michael Scott. The problem is that this ISBN is currently associated in the site to another book called "Shibumi". I have checked over the Internet and found that the ISBN for "Shibumi" is: 978-849-694-012-3 and not the one that is currently associated with.

I hope you can change this information.

Thank you

Hi Anna,
I think everything is ok now. Please verify and post back if there is still something that should be corrected or changed.
