[bksvol-discuss] Re: adult rateing and page numbers

Dear Jake,

I think I understand. I just didn't want to risk not getting the book approved because I didn't rate it correctly. Except for the occasional 4 letter word, the book is tame by twenty first century standards. It's very good hearted and not written to shock or be....x rated.

Shows you how tame the books I've done are. This is the first time I wasn't sure. I believe I have the point well enough that this is another question I won't need to ask again.

Thanks for the help.

always with love,

Lissi

Hi Lissi,
I just mean to think about if the book would be one found in a regular library, or a school one. The automated tools are only so good. I had it tell me a Hardy Boys book should be rated adult, and I had Mike report the same with another HB book. These obviously are meant for younger readers *grin*.


   Page numbers at the bottom is just fine.

Dear Jake and Everyone,

That makes sense, but I have no idea! I haven't paid book ratings a speck of attention, ever. I'm glad the tools can do the job for me. Or, do you mean I should check libraries on line in case they rate it? Other than NLS I haven't checked a library on line yet, either, but their keeps being a first time.

As for page numbers, has that been standardized yet?

I really really really really really...don't want to be at the center of a page numbering storm, so feel free, anyone, to answer off list.

If I don't hear from anyone I'll leave them at the bottom where they are in the book, though I have no problem with putting them at the tops of pages if it helps the tools put them in the brf files.

Always with love,

Lissi

Hi Lissi,
I'll add that the adult content rating should be viewed as for books that a person under the age of 18 should not be able to purchase. If you think the book might be available in a public library amongst the normal books, or in a high school library, then I wouldn't mark it as adult.

Dear Julie,

You mean the tool actually counts such words, and will advise me before I upload!!! Well, that simplifies that!

humor alert - And if this is "The worst it will get," one of my favorite phrases now, then we can expect the tools to be writing book reviews in the future!!!

Thanks,

Always with love,

Lissi

Hi, Lissi. As for the issue of adult rating, it's highly subjective. If the
submitter didn't rate it as adult...I don't even remember if the submitters
can, but anyway, if you're not sure, let the automated tool tally all the
instances of adult-rated words, and if it thinks it should be rated adult,
you can rate it accordingly. Take care.

Dear Friends,

The book I'm going to upload was written with an adult audience in mind, but
isn't really graphic in describing sex. The f word is used often though not
outlandishly. It's a different world and second graders probably notice it
far less than I do. How do I decide if it should have an adult rating?


In the memoir, the narriator is age 8 through 12 in about half of the book
and a teenager in the rest. Most of the sixties occur in the 1960's and
recall the boy's efforts at learning to play guitar, forming a rock and roll
band, beginning to feel critical of his father and coping with first dates.
So, some teens might be interested in it.


I'd also like to know if it helps a book to have page numbers at the tops of
pages instead of at the bottoms. In the scan I have they appear at the top,
but in the print book they are at the bottom.


Is placing a blank line above and below each page number the accepted way to
protect it so it will appear in BRF files?


Thanks to anyone who thinks about helping or posts advice.

Always with love,

Lissi
