Original Pub Date - I'm leaning towards just putting a specific year in for this. Most books have a vague setting in terms of year, so I could differentiate the setting and the pub date that way:
Original Pub Date Tag: 1987
Setting of story Date Tag: 1980s
Condition - This is important because I have a blackberry and use the librarything.com/m site while I am at used bookstores, and when I run across a better copy of something I would like to know whether to replace it or not. I was going to use the accepted terms - NEW; VERY GOOD; GOOD; FAIR; POOR; then some special marks like EX-LIBRARY; BOOK CLUB; REMAINDER MARKS; BOOKPLATES;PREVIOUS OWNER'S NAME.; DUMB UNDER-LINER ALERT... but the problem with tags is lack of context... am I saying the contents of the book are very good? Or that it is about a poor family? Do you think condition markings should be stated like CONDITION-GOOD?
Format - Same here... Hardcover, trade, mmp... and what about those weird books that do not fall into one of those categories? Special? There I run into the same problem... am I saying the book is special to me? FORMAT-SPECIAL is what I am thinking here.
Any insight would be appreciated!
