The other day I talked to my 10-year-old, fifth-grade grandson, Grey, on the phone. I told him that the  New York Times crossword puzzle had the following clue: "Head of Slytherin House"---he immediately said, "That would be Snape." Which, of course, it was.

I gave him, for his 9th Christmas, a little over a year ago, the complete set of Harry Potter books---hardcover, in a special trunk with a latch. Nifty gift, I thought. So did he, because it impressed his friends, but he never opened a single book. He said he preferred non-fiction. So the HP trunk became a piece of furniture in his bedroom.

Then---who knows why?---recently, he started in on the first one....and never looked back. Right now he is middway through Book Four so we had a lengthy phone conversation about HP (which I have never read, so he has to fill me in plot-wise)

Then he turned the telephone over to his younger brother, Rhys, age newly 8, second grade. I asked Rhys what HE is reading.

Goosebumps," he said.

What a pain in the nose! At Goodreads you can search by a single title and bring up many (not all, I don't think) editions and through a lot of clicking and cutting and pasting get at the different ISBNs.

"We have the right to copy and organize all of your digital images whether you want us to or not", says Google either directly or through inference.
"In my view, the entire copyright industry, and the populous, in general, has become sick and tired of the arrogance, hypocrisy, and greed of Google. In spite of their "do no evil" mantra, Google has actually grown to compete with Microsoft for the title of the 'Supreme Evil Empire', in my opinion. "

There are 2687, to be exact. I may end up hiring someone.

If a 16-year-old in New Jersey is eligible for the job, I'm up for it! Seriously.

I would definitely hire a detail oriented person to do the job. Why stress?
Loved reading your last few posts-Krista

sounds like the Guild is corrupt. This fair deal is not equitable for you it seems.

Just for the record: The Authors Guild is not at all corrupt. It acts on behalf of authors in ways that we frequently could not do by ourselves, and it does so without cost to individual authors and always in their best interests. Just wanted to make that clear!
