Yes, exactly! And I have another similarly annoying instance to add to
that. When there is a synopsis
that all but repeats the title name. Anyone seen some like these? They'd
be something like.
Beautiful Day: A Love Story. Synopsis, a love story.
I'm like, no kidding! Thanks! Would it have been hard to write something a little more descriptive? And if you can't, why not just put none? Those
irritate me most I think. <smile>
I must add my grumpiness to E.'s on this subject. It is so aggravating not to have even a brief synopsis. For heaven's sake, how long does it take to visit Powells or Amazon or do a simple Google search to find one?
And perhaps worse in my opinion is to see "mystery by bestselling author." in the synopsis field! That tells us nothing about the book. Maddening stuff!

theAgain we have books on the new books list with no synopsis. I assume this must mean the person who scanned it and the validator have no idea whatthebook is about. Yes I am being sarcastic. Also A Private Affair has a synopsis with a lot of errors in it.
Is there some simple way we can add descriptions to books if we are notsubmitter or validator? It would make the list nicer. Also, I run into a lot of descriptions with spelling errors or other messiness. How can we fix that?
Forgive me if my message sounds grumpy. E.
