The Members view of a work page only changes the center column. For details on the fields to the left and right side of the page, see the Help for the Main Work page.
 LibraryThing members' description
This box will contain a brief description of the work contributed by another LibraryThing member such as yourself. This field is part of LibraryThing's Common Knowledge feature, where members share information for the benefit of everyone. If you would like to add a description, just click the pencil to edit this field. Some things to keep in mind, though:
- This description should be your words. Copying the blurb from the book or a description from somewhere else is often a violation of copyright, and when the violation is discovered, the field may be deleted.
- The description is for all versions of the work, not just the particular edition/printing you own. Thus, it's not appropriate to talk about a particular translation, an introduction that only appears in some versions, illustrations, etc. This field is only for aspects of the work common to all copies held by LibraryThing members.
 Book descriptions
This section lists edition-specific descriptions provided by Amazon. Each description lists a corresponding ISBN so that you can compare different editions of the same work. Not all editions may have a description, particularly since Amazon often holds information only for books currently in print and for sale at its web site!
