Why can one not comment on a book posted but not found?

There are several books I have read that are posted on this site. I have not found them but I would like to comment. Is this possible?

Re: Comment

I think Ron is trying to keep the site "clean", in that you can go to Amazon or BN for reader reviews, but here the focus is on releasing and finding, so people just writing reviews on books that they have read would artificially inflate the journal entries. Just my 2 cents, and I could be wrong.....

Re: Comment

Another problem is that there are multiple copies of the same title in the system. This means that you are writing a review of the book in general to the journal of a specific copy. I like the concept that each copy has its own history, and such general commenting would work against that. Even so, I would still be interested in reading general reviews of titles from the community. Perhaps a link from the journal entries from each copy to a discussion of the book in general would work. Or maybe just post in the "Book Talk" Forums.

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
