mouth operates faster than brain This author was created to segregate those items which have ISBNs but are not actually books. For more information, see the manual and/or start a thread in the Librarians Group.When an item which is not a book is imported via ISBN into Goodreads, it does no good to delete it: the item will only be re-imported as long as it remains on the feeder site. (Often these are book-related items which are assigned ISBNs by book publishers so that they can be tracked through their book systems.)These items should be transferred to the “author” NOT A BOOK. This can be done by editing the individual book record and replacing the existing primary author with the author NOT A BOOK, or, if all of the items on an authors list are not books, the author can be edited and merged entirely into NOT A BOOK.In the case of items currently credited to an author who is a member of the Goodreads Author program, proceed extremely carefully and contact the author for clarification if there is any question regarding the status of an item as a book, particularly in the case of calendars, workbooks, or blank books with additional content.These items are not books:* multi-packs of the same book     *** dumpbin, dump bin, dumpb, dumpbi, dumpbn, dbin, d/bin     *** mixed bin, mixed copy, copy bin, mxd     *** prepak, ppk, stockpack, stock pack     *** header     *** shrinkwrap, shrink wrap, s/wrap, swrap     *** x12, x24, x36, x48, 12c, 24c, 36c, 48c, 12cc, 24cc, 36cc, 48cc, 60cc     *** awbc* promo materials (displays, etc.)     *** counterpack, counter pack, cpack, c/pack, counter display     *** floor display, floordisplay, floor disp, fd, f/d     *** 18fl, 24fl, 27fl, 36fl (fl = floor display)     *** mxfl     *** easel     *** clip strip* movies (DVD or VHS)* television episodes* theatrical production recordings* music (esp soundtracks) (but not bound sheet music, loose sheet music, or sheet music in electronic form)* stationery* calendars (unless containing additional content)* diaries and blank books (unless containing additional content)* posters* unbound maps (as opposed to bound maps in an atlas)* board games* tshirts* toys* stuffed animals/dolls * bookmarks* stickers* decks of cards (including Tarot)* puzzles (as opposed to puzzle books)* plaques (inspirational, or otherwise)* video games* podcasts discussing books* untitled books where no verifiable publication information about the book exists (often these are titled Untitled #3 and represent placeholder ISBNs that were never used)* all book by an author or all books in a series where no published collection of these works exists* story bundles.
