A lot of paperbacks will have several pages of blurbs and reviews at the front of the book, usually some for the book itself and some for the author and/or other works by the author. What's the general consensus? Should these also be included in the blurbers (only those that apply, of course, most are reviews, but not all) or is that field just for cover blurbs?
It's not for blurbs, it's for blurbers - the people who provide the blurbs (read the description below the field when you've clicked to edit it). I don't see why you couldn't include blurbers whose blurbs are listed inside as well.
(See also the Common Knowledge help page which doesn't say anything more about blurbers, but gives quite a bit more information about the other fields.)
I haven't added to this section of CK, but as a completist I'd want to list cover / back cover / internal blurbers in those fields. They often are reformatted, so in some editions an internal blurber will be featured on a cover or back cover.
As a completist, I'd also want these identified by edition. I know we're not there, I'm just sayin'.
>2, I know that, I was working from the location of the blurbs and that led to me refer to blurbs rather than blurbers. Also, blurb is a goofy enough word without the -er and typing it repeatedly felt silly as it was.
