Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) More of the Harlequin Mangas saying " Nook Color edition" in title and in description are creeping back in. (Background, in some Asian countries the mangas were serialized via cell phone subscription; now re-released unserialized for standard ereader formats including kindle, nook, epub, kobo, itunes, etc. ). Titles should not say nook editions (particularly not on the kindle edition) and description should either not mention screen size or say "sized for standard ereader screens." There are for some works both monochrome and color editions (two separate isbn/asin/ean numbers where applicable so "color edition" may be appropriate in edition field).

Example of problem titles ( search for "nook color" for more):
The Italian's Token Wife (Harlequin Romance Manga) - Nook Color

The Wedding in White (Harlequin Romance Manga) - Nook Color Edition
Hot Limit (Yaoi Manga) - Nook Color Edition

I'm not sure the manga versions are supposed to be combined with the original text publications.

Plus some non-harlequin oddities like this kindle edition with asin B004PGNO0S that plasters nook color throughout book data at
THE COMPLETE LDS SCRIPTURES LDS TRIPLE COMBINATION (Special Nook Edition): The Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenents, Pearl of Great Price by Joseph Smith (Latter Day Saints) NOOKbook

Generally speaking (again, nook anything meaning nook edition doesn't usually belong in title field), an asin = kindle or audible edition, an isbn13 starting with 978### a generic ebook that may or may not be sold for nook (goodreads just says format=ebook in that case) and actual nook editions that have ean/bnid starint with 294### in the isbn13 field (again format=ebook but last I knew policy left it optional to put "nook edition" in edition field).

Just quite a lot of titles with "Nook color" and "nook" in titles.
