skw | 93 comments This book by Jane Austen:

seems to have 7 different goodreads pages.

I don't speak Turkish, which is what these pages say this language is. But I did notice that each of them has the same title and seems to have the same description. Also, each of them seems to be in a different format (hardcover, paperback, etc.). Could these 7 pages be consolidated into one? Are there others that could also be consolidated? That would cut the number of unique works down from 450 and might make working through this list a little less confusing.

Abcdarian | 19392 comments As it appears to be a translation of Pride and Prejudice, combined with that. There is certainly more tidying that could be done with Austen's works, but the number of editions involved makes the actual computer processing time for each combine quite long, at least on my computer. Also, only books that have the same content can be combined, which makes collections tricky.
