Lieke | 2347 comments What is considered stationary?
Under the NOT A BOOK topic in the manual it says stationary/calenders are not considered books.
https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/1...

But I'm not sure what to NAB for this author: Jacqueline Wilson
There are a lot of different things. Some examples:
Diary: Jacqueline Wilson Diary 2012
Birthday Journal: Jacqueline Wilson Birthday Journal
Dream Journal: Jacqueline Wilson Dream Journal
Adress Book: The Jacqueline Wilson Address Book 2016
Postcards: Jacqueline Wilson: Fabulous Postcards

I tried the search function but couldn't find anything about this.

(Stationary means not moving. The word you want is stationery. E for envelope.)

All the items you linked should be NAB'd.

Lots of native English speakers get this one wrong. That's why I like the envelope mnemonic.

You could use note paper.
