Natasha Younger (auroraroha) | 11 comments Hello,

I have a few edits that I have found (incorrect spelling of an authors name - and as a result duplicate listing of the book under the incorrect spelling of authors name as well as the correct spelling spelling of authors name).

I'm not quite clear on the best practise for communicating these in this forum - please let me know if I need do so differently.

In the meantime here are the items for anyone who is able to make the edits:

This one has a version of the book to the correct author listing (Jeanette Winterson) and one to the incorrect listing (Jeannette Winterson)

This one has a the correct author spelling in the body text, but the incorrect (Jeannette Winterson) in the author connected to the title.

I am not sure about the third book on the profile:

The other (possible) edit I had noticed is on Tracey Spicer: The Good Girl Stripped Bare body text description .
There is a repeat on the 'From Bogan to Boned....' and possible this was meant to start the second sentence on Tracey Spicer rather than repeat the first half of the first sentence again? (or maybe not!).

From bogan to boned and beyond - a full-frontal 'femoir' by one of Australia's best-loved journalists

From bogan to boned and beyond – a full-frontal femoir Tracey Spicer was always the good girl.

I hope that helps!

Thank you Goodreads Librarians!

Please let me know if I should have submitted this detail differently or could have assisted myself.

Renske | 10795 comments Your requests are fine, I would only advise to not add two unrelated requests in the same message. In this case two different threads would be good, sometimes two message in the same thread also works.

I edited the author name and combined the book.

I removed the repeat in the description.

Natasha Younger (auroraroha) | 11 comments Thank you Renske - I appreciate the feedback - I did wonder about adding the second one in.

I have sent through a request to find out about being part of the Goodreads librarian team, so hopefully in the future I can help out on that side as well.
