I have noticed that a lot of publisher quality books have a paucity of metadata. I wonder if making a quality report with the suggested categorization would help. By the way, I think this is an additional argument for my idea of user added tags.

Hello,

I was wondering about something. And I didn't know where else to throw this out except the volunteer list.

Anyway, just now I clicked on the new to collection page. I was surprised to see quite a few publisher quality Harlequin books.

The thing is, I didn't remember seeing them earlier, when I cruised through the romance category Thursday afternoon.

Thinking maybe they were recently added since the date of addition was 5/13/2011 and where I am it's only a little after 1 a.m. Friday morning as I type this, I thought maybe it was very recent.

However, I clicked to browse the romance category again, and I was correct. Those books I saw on the new to collection page were not listed in the romance category. In fact, when I clicked on one of the books listed on the new to collection page, they didn't have a category selected at all. Or at least, not that I saw.

Is this a simple oversight or is there a reason for this? I'm just a little confused because normally when I want a romance, I look at the romance category page for new additions.

I'll work through this if this is the way. But I'm going to find it a little more time consuming to check out what's done by Harlequin and what's a fiction novel with heavy romantic influence. If that makes sense to everyone. Lol.

Thanks for listening to me ramble,
Natalie
