Not the capital 'N'

Philip (burnnerman) | 5913 comments We go by standard title convention, so words are capitalized, unless they are things like the/it/etc...

Also, the cover shows the word Capitalized.

That's the English title convention. Most other European languages have a different title convention.

ETA: from the Librarian Manual The title should be capitalized according to standard title capitalization for the language of the edition., https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/2...

That's incorrect, this is done only in the English language. The rules also explicitly say that the titles have to match the rules of the respecting languages, see: "The title should be capitalized according to standard title capitalization for the language of the edition."

Edit: Arenda was faster. XD


Halvor (Raknes) | 4770 comments The title of this book is "Hvite niggere". No capital 'N'. That's just graphics for this particular edition cover. I know it's a little confusing, but basically, no 'N'. It's 'n'.

Philip (burnnerman) | 5913 comments Well somebody who knows Norwegian title convention can change it assuming it should be. That will not be me.
