Gilson Lopes (gilsonlopes) | 4 comments Please fix a wrong name:
"Maria Carlos Loureiro" is the correct.
"Maria Carlos Loreiro" is wrong.

Thank you

Done."


It's not fixed. It should read:

"Any good librarian knows the reader doesn't choose the book, the book chooses the reader." J.G. McKenney, The Book Knights: An Arthurian Fantasy

I think you need to start your own thread to get this addressed.

Corrected. Another time please start a new topic thread; this one was attached to a particular book.

You keep linking to the book; I need a link to the quote itself.

I'm the author of the book. I've selected the quote to be added to the book's page. Here is my author page: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Will that suffice?


Christmas Carol She's So Novel꧁꧂  | 5882 comments I am the librarian that corrected your quote.

That subtitle doesn't appear on your book cover.

Abcdarian | 23463 comments Once a quote is added, we get a list of titles to choose from. Carol has chosen the correct title.

It's still reading like this:
“Any good librarian knows the reader doesn't choose the book, the book chooses the reader." Merl, THE BOOK KNIGHTS” —

Can you please remove the last Quotation mark (") and the dash, so it reads like this:
“Any good librarian knows the reader doesn't choose the book, the book chooses the reader." Merl, THE BOOK KNIGHTS

Thank you.

Abcdarian | 23463 comments It looks fine to me:

“Any good librarian knows the reader doesn't choose the book, the book chooses the reader.”

That's how it appears on your author page and quotes page. https://www.goodreads.com/author/quot...

J.G. McKenney (jgmckenney) | 13 comments It's not showing up like that on the book's page:

Melanie (mvalente89) | 1770 comments That's likely because Goodreads works on a caching system and updates do not immediately reflect on all pages. Typically within 24-72 hours the changes will reflect on all pages.
