mlady_rebecca | 593 comments For those who hate the fact that we catalog books that are simply Wikipedia articles, I thought this may be of interest:

Amazon Bans Publishing Public Domain Content

P.S. If there is a better category for this, feel free to move it. It seemed to be something of general interest to Librarians.

Lobstergirl Interesting. A couple months ago I noticed that my library had actually bought one of those, which surprised me. (But then they also buy a lot of absolutely abysmal self-published dreck, which also surprises me. I thought library budgets were shrinking.)

Liesje Leest (liesje_leest) | 15 comments This book is listed as been written by Kate Jacobs who wrote The Friday Night Knitting Club. However, it's not, it is written by someone with the same name.

edit: eehh I had two tabs open, one I wanted to read and one I wanted to comment on, and now I posted in the wrong brain :S

I think so! This is what I found after some google-ing That mentions the singer you linked to also writing the book.
