Do you have doubts about life? Are you unsure if it is worth the trouble? Look at the sky: that is for you. Look at each person's face as you pass on the street: those faces are for you. And the street itself, and the ground under the street, and the ball of fire underneath the ground: all these things are for you. They are as much for you as they are for other people. Remember this when you wake up in the morning and think you have nothing. Stand up and face the east. Now praise the sky and praise the light within each person under the sky. It's okay to be unsure. But praise, praise praise.

Oh, thank you for your reply, Belles.
I'll tell you another example (this one is not yours, but quite frequent among other editors:
Romeo and Juliet (Chinese thesaurus)
is frequently sorted by other editors as "Chinese edition". In fact, it is an English edition with explanation of expressions and difficult words for the Chinese, in footnotes. I simply sort it as "Thesaurus : Chinese".
I noticed you changed the language of an edition from English into French:
Oxford Primary Dictionary 2005 (French Edition)
So, once seen the "Amazon title", you made that be sorted as "French".
One of the cataloguing missions of Shefari is correcting the mistakes we inherited from Amazon. You should not declare an English book written in English by Oxford University Press, and having a British ISBN - French, simply because Amazon said that before you.
Two of the areas where we 'inherited' lots of mistakes is "Language edition" and "Subjects". If you edit languages, the first thing you should do is suspect. If you see a title as, say, "Viva a Nação Portuguesa! (Italian edition)" by, say, João Mousinho Ferreira de Magalhães, you should not edit that as Italian. It is obviously an error.
The site Worldcat is much more reliable to check the edition language. Example:
Morning Ms. Belles,
I think it might have been Fictiondb.com (only for fiction books) I started using it, I like it for keeping my reads organized. My library system uses it.
FB finally got -https://read.rifflebooks.com up so I've been trying that out. I like the concept of it. There are a couple of friends from Shelfari on it now too.
I hope that helps. Have a fabulous hump day.
Hi, Belles. I'll pop over and post on CCs profile and see if she's gotten in now.
I know of two people yesterday who were having some trouble, then I heard of lots more people this morning, but whatever the problem (the server problem) was seemed to be fixed by this afternoon. It looks like you got in fairly early today, though.
If CC still can't get in, let her know that this sounds a bit different from my issue. (You can copy/paste my message to her... hmmm, I could try sending her a private message, too, but I wonder if it would work!?) For me, if I was logged in, the home page would mostly load, then the entire page went white/blank. If I was fast enough to click a link before the page "disappeared" on me, I could get to another page, but the same thing would happen.
Honestly, I don't know how it got fixed. I emailed email@example.com multiple times over the course of a week or so, but never heard anything back. Suddenly, I was able to get in again, but I honestly don't know what had happened or why I was able to get in again.
So, I'm sorry I'm no help, but I hope the "not finding the server" issue is the same as every one else (including me!) seemed to be having this morning.
A new group has been launched, Belles ~ we are looking
forward to your input!
