Joy H. (joyofglensfalls) | 121 comments Please add the following book to the Goodreads books:
_Stories of Lake George Fact and Fancy_ by Thomas Reeves Lord.

Goodreads already has three of Lord's other books listed, but not this original one of the series. See this one at Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/Stories-Lake-Ge...

The three books that Goodreads already has listed are:
More stories of Lake George: Fact and fancy
Still more stories of Lake George: Fact and fancy
Poems of Lake George : Proses and Poesy

Now GR should list the missing book named in my first paragraph above. Thank you.

Joy H. (joyofglensfalls) | 121 comments Thank you, De.
Is there any chance of getting cover pictures for those that don't have them?

PS-I see the book you added here: OOOPS. I couldn't find it.
I was able to add it to my shelves but I can't find it to post here (as a hyperlink).

Thank you, De, for loading the images of the book covers.

I am still unable to add a hyperlink here of: _Stories of Lake George: Fact and Fancy_.

Why is that?

i am not sure

are you searching with _ in the title?


message 7: by Joy H. (new)

Joy H. (joyofglensfalls) | 121 comments No, De. I searched in my usual way. Maybe I forgot the colon. I'll try it now with the colon.

Nope! Not successful. Here's what it said:
"Search for: stories of lake george: fact and fiction
No books found."


message 8: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl It's because you're searching for "fact and fiction" rather than "fact and fancy." The database wants you to enter the precise title....which is annoying....


message 9: by Joy H. (new)

Joy H. (joyofglensfalls) | 121 comments Ooops! I'll try it again using the correct title.

Lobstergirl, see my Message 9. Our messages crossed.


message 12: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl I tried the same search query and got a bunch of results but not your book. Maybe search is just being buggy today? It's definitely happened before.

Searching for only "stories of lake george" did bring up your book and also "more stories of lake george" and some others by the same author.

OK, I'll try that.

Stories of Lake George: Fact and Fancy

Well, it finally worked, but I had to try it several times before it took.

Lobstergirl, I think you're right about the search function being buggy today. Of course, it didn't help when I entered the wrong title. However, even when I entered the correct title, it gave me trouble. Oh, well, I finally got the hyperlinked title. At least we know it WILL work!

Thank you both for your help.
