Why specifically the authors and book information? Would it be more convenient if somebody asked you what book you were reading you could tell them the tile not the authors name and a string of numbers and letters?
The string of numbers and letters are web links for book trailers and teasers. Check them out. It’s always important to be aware of the author of a book. There are many books with the same title but different authors or titles that sound alike. Also, if you like a certain book, chances are that you would like others written by the same author. Knowing the author is important in locating it in a library.
Ah, I will do that for future lists. Thank you for telling me. I think I did this because some of the Battle of the Books participants wanted to possibly order copies for themselves. It was a while ago, so I don’t remember all the details.

What We Become…
“What we become depends on what we read after all of the professors have finished with us. The greatest university of all is a collection of books.”
“May blessings be upon the head of Cadmus, the Phoenicians, or whoever it was that invented books.”

Frigate like a Book
There is no frigate like a book
by Emily Dickinson
There is no Frigate like a Book To take us Lands away, Nor any Coursers like a Page Of prancing Poetry - This Traverse may the poorest take Without oppress of Toll - How frugal is the Chariot That bears a Human soul.
"Once you learn to read, you will be forever free."
— Frederick Douglass
