Hi Lune

Could you tell me the category name please? :) It will make it a bit faster for me to locate it. :)

Lune Spark | 36 comments The link that I had included has category shown - you may have to scroll a tiny bit up. The category is Preteen

Hi Lune I'm aware that link has the category shown. But there are 105 categories & all with the same large book covers that Goodreads favours. They load slowly for me.

Award added & edition changed from 1 to 1st edition.

Hi Bivek & Sumit.

I have a question about these awards.

Only one of the existing awards on Goodreads shows a year they won. Would you be able to help with the year? (we would need the Gregorian calendar)

Also, is there a clear winner. Or are there categories?

Unfortunately I only speak English & even with Google translate I can't read that website.

Bivek Bhandari | 735 comments Hello, They are the clear winners of Madan Puraskar.

Could you add these awards without the year or is it possible to add the award with BS calender eg (2074 BS) These awards are given as per our B.S Calender.

Good question! From the Librarians manual;

https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/2...

So I can ask rivka (staff member who supervises the Librarian's Group.) My concern would be when librarians/members see non Gregorian dates in one section, they think it's ok in another. But I'll ask.

Clear member means there has to be one winner - but if some of these are category winners (Best Fiction, best Non Fiction) that is ok. If they aren't an award by GR standards, we can always put them in the book description - & use the B.S dates.


Christmas Carol She's So Novel꧁꧂  | 5874 comments Hi Bivek

rivka has given a ruling in the questions section;

https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

So I think leaving blank will be fine.

A librarian friend gave me this link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madan_P... So this looks to be a yearly award with a clear winner.

I have a busy couple of weeks, but if no other librarian has time to add the books you linked to, I will do as soon as I can.

Thanks for your patience. :)

Christmas Carol She's So Novel꧁꧂  | 5874 comments I've added the award from #7-9. :) I have tried to put the title in Nepali but it looks different to the cover on the book. Can you check my work please, Bivek?

The book in #7 needs a description in Nepali. I'll post the award list in the languages folder to see if we have a librarian who speaks Nepali. Or if you can supply a description I'll try to add it. :)

Bivek Bhandari | 735 comments Hello,

The award website in the description is the direct link to the winner of 2045 BS.

The official award website (Direct link to the list of winners) is

http://madanpuraskar.org/guthi/people...

(You can add this link instead of above link)

The description of book #7 is

'धृतराष्ट्र’ काव्यमा कवि कँडेल आफूमा धृतराष्ट्रका देउता चढेर बकेका छन्। उनले धृतराष्ट्रलाई पर्याप्त सहानुभूति दिएका छन्। एउटा सफल आख्यानकारले आफ्ना सबै पात्रहरूलाई बराबर माया र सहानुभूति गर्नुपर्छ भन्ने कुराको प्रमाण पनि हो यो।

Changed the link on the top of awards to your one Biwek & added your description. Thanks for the help. :)


Christmas Carol She's So Novel꧁꧂  | 5874 comments Added award.

Do you have a description in Nepali for this book, Bivek?

Bivek Bhandari | 735 comments हाम्रो आजको समाजमा आइमाईलाई कसरी भोगको वस्तु ठान्ने गरिएको छ र विशेष गरी तरुनीबरुनी आइमाई देखेपछि समाजमा प्रतिष्ठित कहलाएका र समाजको उन्नति गर्ने बाटोमा लागेका छौँ भन्नेहरू समेत कसरी गिद्ध सरीका बन्छन् भन्ने कुराहरू यस उपन्यासमा लेखकले कत्ति नडराइकन र मुलाहिजा नराखिकन देखाउन खोज्नुभएको छ ।

Hi Bivek. I've removed that altogether & added your description in Nepali. :)

Have you thought about applying to become a GR librarian? The manual & application are here. https://www.goodreads.com/help/librarian

You can be as active (or inactive) as you choose. :)
