Julia, I'm not sure what you're requesting. This book is already in the Goodreads database; you can find it here: Der Killer

(add new book)
* Title 一个人流浪,不必去远方
* Author(s) name(s) 王臣
* ISBN (or ASIN) ISBN 978-7-5399-6185-9
* Publisher 江苏文艺出版社
* Publication date June 2013, First Edition (first published June 2013)
* Format Paperback
* Language Chinese
* Description 我们有太多的挣扎和压抑想去远方奔走发泄,也有那么多不忍挥去的从前想躲起来珍藏。可是在自己还不够强大的时候,我们没有资格和勇气那么洒脱,说离开就离开。希望我们的心智能如年龄一样成熟,承担得起每一次决定后的代价。如果,旅行是为了释放,为了找到一种淡定自在的感觉,去哪里,还重要吗?一个人,不用太长时间,不必走太远,甚至不用行李,就是随着心情去走,去认识那些每天都能看见却从未走近的地方,就像到了一个全世界都找不到你的小天地。让所有包袱,统统被安静的自己消化。

Please check if it's correct.

Not added the cover yet. What is the source of that cover?
Do you know the original publication date?

黑锅 | 29 comments Thank you so much lethe

#7: Source for the cover is from a buddhist website, should be ok to use. As for the original publication date, I'm unable to obtain, it's not stated in book; book not shown on the website given for publishing book:(

#8: The description is wrong:
全新修订增补版,增补十余篇文章,近四万字;
量身定做29张精选歌单,更在文末附上总歌单,扫描二维码,即可同步聆听,进入纯粹的音乐世界。

本书是梁文道的文艺专栏结集,分为“纯粹音乐怎么听”、“音乐原来不会死”、“悲剧照常发生”、“电光幻影迷什么”、“电视末日到了吗”、“娱乐到底是什么”六个部分。梁文道以多年的阅读、观察,谈论自己喜爱的音乐和电影,对电视和娱乐也有独到的体会和看法,或许能让读者在媒体时代的众声喧哗里重新思考“噪音”的存在,而它们又如何在无形中影响甚至塑造着社会文化和生活。

should just be (omit the top section of words):

lethe | 14560 comments Re #7, I'm afraid we cannot use that cover. Only authors' and publishers' websites, national and public library sites, and Amazon/Abebooks/Book Depository may be used.

But if you have the book yourself, maybe you can make a scan or take a photo? That would be allowed too.

Re #8, have corrected the description.

黑锅 | 29 comments can help add #14 :)thanks in advance!


message 16: by lethe (new)

lethe | 14560 comments Sorry that this hadn't been done yet! Thank you for your patience :)
Book added: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

I also tried to do the rest of #6, but I have a few questions about this book: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...
Do you know if this book is in Chinese, or in both English and Chinese?

If it is in English and Chinese, the author's name should be added in English to all his books (Wang Chen).

Also, the English title added is "Is the One Loving You Most Still There", but on the cover it says "How Do I Say Goodbye"? If the book is in Chinese only, I'll move the English title to the description, and I'll move this book to the author's Chinese profile: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...
