Maggie (ceodraiocht) | 84 comments Looking at the books that came in through Kindle recommendations I'd wanted to see Goodreads recommendations. When I search on the author, I can only find his page and book titles in German here on Goodreads - they're in English on Amazon. The GR page I'm searching and landing on isn't a .de (German internet specific) site. Anyone have clue? (and yes, I could use Google Translate, but it's a pain). Perhaps the author is hoping to push GR to be a multilingual site here you click your flag in the corner to get the right language, but seems a defeatist way to approach it.

Bernhard Hennen The Elven (looking for)

They usually come up first in their native tongue. Go to "All Editions" and you'll see all languages available. I think this is what you wanted?

Here you go

Maggie (ceodraiocht) | 84 comments Thanks!! I see the author's description on the right remains in German. Had not realized it went to native tongue first as I know we've seen other non-english speaking recommendations and I'm sure the author's page was in English there. Perhaps their choice? Anyway - thanks for leading me to the reviews :-) .

Rampant conversations...a mod will get there eventually.

Someone can't find a book, that is CLEARLY A CRISIS! Glad we could help :D

Sarah | 3908 comments I think it has to do with which one has been reviewed most?

Oh, that may be.

Maggie (ceodraiocht) | 84 comments Well, I've been around for years - tend to lurk more than chat - but click on books / authors in threads or search from Bookbub and other recommendations pretty much daily and that was the first time I'd hit a page not in English starting with a Goodreads author search. (the link I'd shared was to the series but the author search had also landed me to the all German page). Thanks all.
