Liz Yanes (lizilena) | 265 comments 2-11 All done.

1. The copy that you own, is it Hardcover?


message 4: by Jack (last edited Aug 25, 2015 09:26AM) (new)

Jack Pramitte | 105 comments No. It's Paperback. In France, hardcover are usually for children books or deluxe edition. I doubt there exist a hardcover edition for this book, but maybe.

Liz Yanes (lizilena) | 265 comments There was a duplicate of this edition. Merged and corrected data.


message 6: by Jack (last edited Aug 25, 2015 10:30AM) (new)

Jack Pramitte | 105 comments Thank you.

There are still a couple of things:

1) In French no need for a capital at "infamie": La Nuit de l'infamie. Only the first noun should have a capital, except for cases like 7).
You may remove the fist two lines in the description. It reads: "Translated from English by..."
I see that this edition is still not merge with: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

2) I don't see the correction in the title. Note that there is no subtitle on the cover.

4 + 5 + 6) Please, change language to: French

7) Need a capital at "Ombres". In French there are a capital at both nouns in titles in the form "X and Y". Examples: "Guerre et Paix", "Le Rouge et le Noir"...

10) In French, all capitals are useless in this title. Only Twenty should have one if it was in letters.

11) In French, no capital for "siècle". And there is a glitch with the accent. If you do not have the letter "è" on your keyboard, I recommand you copy/paste "siècle".

Sorry, I know I'm a little fussy. I'll gladly become a librarian myself. :O)

1 done
2 corrected (Worldcat has the subtitle. As the subtitle is not on the cover, I moved the subtitle from title field to description field).
4, 5, 6 changed to French
7 Ombres had a capital. Replaced the cover with a better version from Amazon (no Kindle-edition added to cover).
10 removed all capitals
11 removed capital for siècle (although it has a capital on the cover).

Jack Pramitte | 105 comments All's good. Wonderful.

Thank you!


message 9: by Liz (new)

Liz Yanes (lizilena) | 265 comments 4-6 Corrected.
7. Added capital to "Flemmes"
10-11. Done by Arenda too I suppose.

Thank you for reporting.

Did you apply to become a librarian already?


message 11: by Jack (new)

Jack Pramitte | 105 comments I asked yesterday but I received no answer. I understand it means: no thanks. Or maybe an approval takes more time.

I see a lot of errors from the (automatic?) importation from Amazon France. Almost nothing is correct. I will gladly correct every mystakes I see.

I'd wait a little longer before saying your application was rejected.

An approval usually takes 1-2 weeks.
