I apologize for both errors although I didn't remember putting in actual page numbers. However--I'll be sure not to do that in the future. I noticed that it was flagging "thru" and should have corrected that before you had to say something but I won't do that again either. Thank you for the heads up! :)
Re your combination request for Yehuda Amichai poem collections. Have you validated that these are the same "poems" in each collection?
So I've scoured the Librarians & Editors group and it's not real clear what the guidelines are, actually they're very vague and I had to search only to find that some guidelines are at the very end of the discussion lists. Maybe it would be more appropriate to have the guidelines as a sticky at the very top of the discussion groups so they're at the top instead of at the bottom.
I also notice that on the book Dog on It, Spencer Quinn that Bernie is listed twice and would have thought that that would be corrected. I also notice that a lot of the characters are deleted and then added again. Is the purpose of adding characters to add all characters in the book or a limited number of characters? This is all so confusing since each persons main page encourages them to add info to the books they read.
Just trying to understand better how this works so that I can become a valued contributor.
Thanks in advance for your time in pointing out how this system works.
I always thought if you do not dare to do what you want, you will be sad, that is why I love this quote you posted:
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover”
I saw your recent review for Mawson's Will, and started to recommend Touching the Void, but see that you've already read it! I was surprised however, to see Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air absent from your shelf... you've got to add it to your to-be-read list - it's unbelievably good! (As are most of his books...) I hope you're doing well, Alfred
I know you sent me the list, like, 3 months ago, but I never got around to thanking you. That's an awesome list of dog books. Of that list, I've only ever read "Where the Fern Grows" (which I don't think I could ever again because it made me cry so hard). So I look forward to trying these out! Thanks so much!
I'm currently reading "The Other End of the Leash" about dog and human behavior - I'm learning so much!
Through some diabolical glitch at Shelfari I ended up with TWO accounts and could only sign in to the newly created one. So I've had to transfer all of my books and, more or less, start from scratch. In the process I've also lost all of my "friends" and "followers". I've tried to get Shelfari to correct the situation to no avail. They keep referring me to Amazon and the Amazon "help" people claim never to have heard of Shelfari. Hope you'll continue to "follow" me at my new location. Gunter
