bex (bexdk) | 50 comments Books originally published in a single volume are somtimes divided into multiple volumes (seems esp common with large print and audio books). At this point I am leaving them alone as separate books.

But is this correct? It seems like any reviews of any halves of the book actually belong in the original book. Even if anyone only read half of it, it will still apply to the whole, because there is most likely some reason they only read the one half.

vicki_girl | 2765 comments The current policy is that books separated into multiple volumes do not get combined with the original whole volume.

This doesn't mean it isn't open to discussion, but the above is how things currently stand. :)

bex (bexdk) | 50 comments Okay, so I am following policy. I don't have the energy to try to change anything. Just want to be sure I am doing it "right."
