Triinu | 12 comments Ok, how should I delete the unnecessary misspelled book? I already added one with correct name, but this one is not needed.

lethe | 13532 comments When making a mistake in a book add, please do not add the book again, but ask here to have the mistake corrected. Having to merge a book is a lot more work than correcting a simple typo.

That said, you added three authors in one author field:
https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

This translation should be combined with the original, listed under Grey Owl: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

Could you link to a source where I can verify the Hall öökull name? What is their role, and shouldn't it be Öökull? Is it the Estonian name for Grey Owl?

Oh, and which author name(s) appear on the cover?


Triinu | 12 comments It is same author, but names are on different languages - Grey Owl in english, Hall Öökull in estonian and third one is probably right name. On the cover is Hall Öõkull.

Yes, same author than under the second link.

lethe | 13532 comments OK, the merge has gone through in the meantime. I have corrected the author name and combined with the other editions: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...

Could you perhaps make a scan or take a photo of the cover? It would be great if we could add that to the book record.


Triinu | 12 comments I don't make photos, I even take certain pride for it. That I don't have smartphone or other photographic tools. =) But picture is here, for exaple https://www.antikvariaat.eu/tr%C3%BCk...

And thank you!!! I like proper format, misspelling is horror for me =)
