Lists: AnnaClaire (1), Edward (3)

Score: 7.04

Explanations:

AnnaClaire (1): If subject headings are to be believed, this is a "pictorial work" about a town in New Jersey, and not a novel about the female residents of a town in England.… (more)

3.96 stars (3.96 stars)

Lists: Edward (1), AnnaClaire (5)

Score: 6.68

Explanations:

AnnaClaire (5): There are two sets of effectively doubled headings and it goes downhill from there. Scroll down to the H's, and it's called a comic book, a film, a large type book, a "Toy and movable books" and a videodisc. And somehow got sorted with a certain Mary Shelley novel.… (more)

Lists: AnnaClaire (7), ahef1963 (14)

Score: 4.53

Explanations:

Lists: ahef1963 (9), AnnaClaire (12)

Score: 4.46

Lists: AnnaClaire (11), ahef1963 (15)

Score: 4.23

Explanations:

AnnaClaire (11): Quite a few subject headings from the movies. A few oddballs made their way in, too. There are also a number of headings in French that duplicate their English counterparts.… (more)

Score: 2.83

Explanations:

Score: 2.11

Lists: AnnaClaire (15)

Score: 2.03

Explanations:

AnnaClaire (15): There's the work-level "Electronic books" in there. And some French dupes of headings already there in English -- at least, once you correct for some wrongly-escaped characters.… (more)
