I just wanted to mention that The Great Gatsby is listed as having been first published in 1379. That seems a bit early to me; I believe the correct year is 1925.

Correcting the first published date won't stick for more than a day or two unless you also edit the edition with the incorrect publication date. I got this one.

(FYI, 13__ pub dates are not from time travelers; they are from users incorrectly adding dates from the Persian calendar.)


✿Claire✿ (clairelm) | 5 comments Ah ok, thanks Rivka, I didn't know that :)
