I've read about adding to the book data and I've tried to do it. How much time does it take to see if the team approves it?  Is there a rule on what content description is allowed?  Many times the only book data I've found is reviews that are copyrighted and I've included the copyright with the data submitted.  I'm just wondering if I'm wasting my time.

I've usually seen mine up within a couple of days, no more than 4. I don't know about content, I have never submitted a review for the description so I am not sure how that would be treated.

The great thing about the Data group is that if there is any thing wrong, they will always tell you so if you haven't heard bac kfrom them it was good or they haven't gotten to it yet.

I've actually seen a Publisher's Weekly review as a content description.  That's what I went on for reference.  There are so many books without any kind of description.  Especially non-fiction.  They don't even get reviews!  I haven't heard back on any of them so I don't know.  Was just hoping I'm not doing things wrong or wasting my time.
