It does appear that the K-Mart edition is the only one available at this time, and I can find no other information about it. Unfortunately, K-Mart is not one of the acceptable sources we can use for covers and book data.

If you would like to provide the information, we can use that to add the book record. This is what we need. Please note that the information must be exactly as it is show on the cover and on the copyright page:

* Title
* Author(s) name(s)
* Publisher
* Publication date
* Format (paperback? hardcover? ebook? Kindle?)
* Description
* Page count
* Cover image from acceptable source, such as a publisher website

If you can take a photo or scan the cover image, we can use that. Add the image to your profile for us to copy: (.jpg or .gif format) We'll let you know when we've finished so you can delete the photo if you wish.

Dobby (dobby0390) | 3540 comments Thanks for providing the additional information. I've created a Goodreads listing, though it is incomplete: Going Ostrich

I could not use the description taken from, nor could I use the cover image taken from the unidentified website. Due to copyright laws, we cannot use photos or descriptions from sources that are not on the list of acceptable sources for covers and book data.

I added a description in my own words based on my viewing the author's promo video on YouTube. If you'd rather write something different, just post it here. Neither the author's website,, nor that of his brother,, mentions the book. It is not yet on WorldCat.

So we're back to what you might be able to provide, as a reader:

Cover image:
If you can take a photo of the book's cover (or a scan), we can use that. We cannot use a photo taken from another website unless it is on the list I mentioned above.

This is probably a self-published work, so there might not be a publisher listed. If there is, it should be on the title page, usually at the bottom, and on the copyright page, usually at the top.

Page count:
If the pages are not numbered, you can count them. Include any end-material such as acknowledgments, afterwords, appendices, indexes, notes, or the like. If you are unsure, here is the help page link:

Goodreads librarians are volunteers; please be patient. As you can imagine, it took me quite a bit of time to research this.

C. J. Scurria (goodreadscomcj_scurria) | 40 comments Thank you.

And I was only posting a second time (the "reminder") so that my post would be seen near the top of the discussions. Sorry about that. I thank you very much as well as other librarians for your work in this.
