Amazon's data transfer to Goodreads

Ah, so now the warnings Petra and others have repeatedly made are showing up also in the obscure corners of literature I frequent. In GR the book description of Stephen Owen's An Anthology of Chinese Literature: Beginnings to 1911 now reads

 

good condition some writing and highlighting in the book

 

I checked Amazon's description of this book; it is

 

Hailed as a groundbreaking text in Chinese Studies, An Anthology of Chinese Literature brings together representative works from the first millenium B.C. to the end of the imperial system in 1911.
This collection of over 600 pieces, translated with great clarity and sense of the original, presents the tradition in historical and aesthetic context. Moving roughly chronologically through the tradition, An Anthology of Chinese Literature gathers texts in a variety of genres—songs, letters, anecdotes, poetry, political oratory, plays, traditional literary theory, and more—to show how the essential texts build on and echo each other. Coupled with highly readable commentary, this innovative structure uniquely highlights the interplay among Chinese literature, culture, and history.

So the data transfer is going worse than one would have expected; even Amazon's book descriptions are being overwritten by those of Amazon marketplace vendors. Nice going, GRAmazon!
