Pradipa P. Rasidi (xaliber) | 8 comments Hello,

I just added a new quote by James Ferguson, but Goodreads mistaken my James Ferguson for another James Ferguson (both write non-fiction, but mine writes anthropology).

This is the quote: https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/8594...

Can someone please change the author to this James Ferguson? https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

And the quote is located in this book: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

I appreciate the help!

Evgeny Fixed.


Pradipa P. Rasidi (xaliber) | 8 comments Thanks a lot! Is there a way to tag the proper James Ferguson in the future? He has a couple of interesting lines to quote, but tagging James Ferguson seems to direct me to the other James Ferguson.

Pradipa P. Rasidi (xaliber) | 8 comments Oh so that's what the ^^^ means... three spaces huh. Thanks!

The above quote is for "Your Time is Now: A Time to be born and a time to die."
Please make changes.

What I am asking is, to remove the quote from 'Stories People Love," and put it in "Your Time is Now: A Time to be born and a time to die." This is not duplicating. It is correcting a mistake. Please make the adjustments.

It gets confusing when a thread linked to a specific book or author is also used for other books. I am closing this thread. Start new ones for other books.
