Kate S | 6265 comments Sept 9 is National Pet Memorial Month. Read a book that has at least one edition published by a publishing house that has the name of an animal in its name...such as Penguin, Black Dog, Graywolf, etc. Please include a link to both the MPE and the applicable edition.

Please post any questions about task 10.5 in this thread.

Anika | 2068 comments Do audiobooks count as editions? I was looking at a book and Penguin Random House Audio is the publisher of the audiobook, but the print editions are all under the Random House label.


message 3: by Elizabeth (Alaska) (last edited Aug 30, 2018 01:43PM) (new)

Elizabeth (Alaska) | 12768 comments Yes, there needs to be at least 1 edition, any format, with the animal name. (And I suspect those Random House are actually Penguin ones.)


message 4: by Owlette (new)

Owlette | 496 comments I had two questions and I see that one (Penguin audio) has already been answered and deemed okay. How about "Bantam" (small chicken)?

Ha! Very good - yes, we'll take Bantam, too.

Rosemary | 3113 comments What about Akurat? Has "rat" in it . . .
Marsjanin

Or Turtleback?

No, sorry.


message 8: by Rosemary (new)

Rosemary | 3113 comments Is that a no for Turtleback, too? I may have added that after you saw the question.

I was kind of expecting it for the rat ;)


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 12768 comments No to Turtleback, too. (And thanks for the prompt, you are right that I didn't see it.)


message 10: by Rosemary (new)

Rosemary | 3113 comments How about: Horse's Mouth, Square Fish?

And mythical beasts: Minotaur, Roc, Pegasus?

Sorry for all the questions. I've been through all my most likely books now so that should be the end :)


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 12768 comments Rosemary wrote: "How about: Horse's Mouth, Square Fish?"

No to these

"And mythical beasts: Minotaur, Roc, Pegasus?"

And yes to these.

Questions are what these threads are for! We'd rather have them here than for you to have an unpleasant surprise later.

Coralie | 2545 comments I assume Seal and Daw would work.

What about Waking Lion?

Thank you.

Rosemary | 3113 comments Since you were so nice about all my questions, I found a couple more to check:

Corgi
Flamingo

Yes! And I'm doing good to see Penguin!

Elizabeth (Alaska) | 12768 comments There is a publisher as part of Vintage called Black Lizard. Those books will qualify for this this task. The should be identified on GR as such. I see several that are by the Noir authors.

Valerie Brown | 2597 comments How about Salamandra? Salamandra books is a publisher from Spain; and Salamandra is the Latin name - genus - for six species of Salamanders.

Yes, we'll take animals in other languages - but you might need to explain when you post! I was looking at some titles yesterday and wondered about the meaning of publisher names in other languages, but was too lazy to look them up.

Well, the word looked so similar to the English I thought it was worth googling. Unfortunately, unless they are simple or obvious words my non-English language skills are weak. One of my regrets......

Yes, Indeed!

Would Pan be considered a mythical beast, half man and half goat?


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 12768 comments Rebekah wrote: "Would Pan be considered a mythical beast, half man and half goat? "

Are you thinking Pan Macmillan?


message 25: by Rebekah (new)

Rebekah (bekalynn) | 4477 comments The book I was looking at just said “Pan Books” so this book’s edition must have been before it was acquired by Macmillan.

Owlette | 496 comments Does "Yearling" work? Thanks.

As it's not fully an animal, Pan will not be allowed.

Owlette wrote: "Does "Yearling" work? Thanks."

No, sorry. It's an age, and while usually applied to an animal, it isn't actually the name of an animal.

I love it--when my parents first got chickens, some of them were Bantams--Using one Bantam egg was perfect when you halved a recipe that called for only one egg even if they weren't exactly 1/2 in volume. Plus we ate them boiled as well.

Lagullande | 1040 comments Just wondering whether Dead Dodo Vintage would be ok, specifically Jerusalem?


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 12768 comments Lagullande wrote: "Just wondering whether Dead Dodo Vintage would be ok, specifically Jerusalem?"

We'll allow this because "Dead Dodo" is the actual publisher, and "vintage" one of its categories.

Thank you. Obviously the "Dead" part is unnecessary.


message 32: by Beth (new)

Beth Robinson (bethrobinson) | 1118 comments Will Graywolf be allowed?
And if so and I do read this book The Rest of the Voyage: Poems published by them will I get +5 for the Fagles translation prize noted on the cover but not the listing?

Yes for Graywolf, and after some searching found the Robert Fagles prize and have added it to the three titles I could find.

Beth Robinson (bethrobinson) | 1118 comments Thank you. I find odd things at used book stores. :)


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 12768 comments Beth wrote: "Thank you. I find odd things at used book stores. :)"

I'm jealous. For me, there aren't many downsides to living in a small town, but no used bookstores is one of them.
