DebsD | 37 comments There are two listings for English Grammar Boot Camp.
This one: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...
is iisted as "not a book", with a librarian note that "lectures are not books".
This one: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...
is listed as authored by Anne Curzan.

They are the same thing and although it is indeed a series of lectures (available on video), it's also available as an Audible download, and as an accompanying course-book.

As a relatively inexperienced librarian, I'm not sure how this should be dealt with, so thought it best to ask here. Clearly the two entries are for the same thing, but I'm not sure if this really is "not a book". I'm happy to do whatever should be done with this, but I'd like guidance on what that is. Thanks :-)

Thanks! I wasn't sure what to do about it and decided it was better to ask rather than screw it up.
