Courtney Tiberio | 2 comments Hi, I'm trying to post a couple quotes from this book, and when I try attribute it to the proper author I get the choices of another Bud Harris and Bud Harris PhD, but not the actual Bud Harris PhD who is the author of this book. Can you please help?

Arenda | 20194 comments When adding the author to the space, you have to add Bud^^Harris, where ^ is a space.
Goodreads uses one or more extra spaces to separate author profiles with the same name. The Bud Harris who wrote Aging Strong has two spaces in his name. Adding quotes is one of the pages where the spacing has to match exactly.

Arenda | 20194 comments I corrected the author for both quotes that you have added:
https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/7995... and https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/7995...


Courtney Tiberio | 2 comments Ok, thank you. I wonder why he has two spaces there. It's confusing.

Arenda | 20194 comments These spaces are the only way authors with the same name can each have their own profile, with only their books, quotes etc.

The 1-space Bud Harris only has one book listed. I'll ask GR Staff if they can change these author profiles, as that would make more sense for these profiles, considering the number of books.
