parrais | 7 comments Can someone please clarify if picture books with no text (except the title & 'author' on the front and credits/ISBN/barcode on the back) should be on Goodreads?

My instinct says yes, even for those with unusual bindings (e.g. waterproof), but I see some have been marked as 'not a books':

(In fact, I think these may even have text in...)

What's the consensus on these?


This Is Not The Michael You're Looking For | 949 comments I personally think both of those count as books and should not have been NOB'd to begin with.

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments It looks like the librarian in question was NABing a whole stack of stick, postcard, and coloring books. Matt, you might want to drop a message to that librarian to point out the situation and be sure that there weren't similar books caught in the sweep.
