Goodreads has been importing millions of books from various Amazon databases.

Multiple errors abound, like this one.

Staff member Sarah says, “We’re definitely aware of some of these issues and we plan on running a cleanup to bring the Amazon imported data up to Goodreads standards and best practices.”

Whatever can’t be corrected via programming will inevitably fall to Librarians. I wonder how many will take up the challenge.

In the meantime, be careful when browsing and adding books to your collection.
