What is the approximate word cound for a 300 page 7 x 5 book? Please help.
Your page should be set for letter size, 8 1/2 x 11. You should use Times New Roman, double space, and 12 point font. Don’t use any fancy fonts; there’s no need for it. You should, however, double-check the submissions guidelines of whomever it is you are transmitting your work to; they won’t even look at your work if you don’t adhere to their rules.And no, trim size and type treatment for books do not match the trim and type of the submitted manuscript. The publishing house will determine the trim size, and the designer and editor work together to select a type treatment. You don’t get to decide either of them for final publication, unless you’re a very famous author, and even then, you MAY get a say in the typeface. The trim is usually determined on how the books will shelved in a bookstore. (For example, books that are 6 x 9 are hard to shelve, so houses try to stray away from that trim. It’s still done, but it’s avoided.)After you’ve adjusted your document, you can check your word count in MS Word. If you go to Tools in Word’s menu, you can select Word Count to find out how many words you have in your final manuscript.Good luck.
I have found out that the library’s shelving test for a job requires you to order books and cd’s in the most efficient way as quickly as possible. The books include, fiction and non-fiction as well as other languages.How would you order these books?(Order as in “put in order”)
Fiction: Novels are always shelved alphabetically by the author’s last name, then first initial.Non-fiction: Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) For those, just put them in numerical order.Foreign language: I don’t knowCDs: my guess would be by classification: jazz, classical, country, pop, rock, etc. and then by artist

Three key elements on why ghost huntress: awakening, is a science fiction book.
Help for book report
Hi there!I think it’s cool that you’re doing a book report on my book, GHOST HUNTRESS: THE AWAKENING. I wouldn’t classify it as a science fiction book, though. It’s shelved in young adult and paranormal. However, I suppose you could look at it as science fiction in a few ways…1. Ghost hunting is not scientific because ghosts have yet to be proven. In order to do this, you have to be able to have repeatable evidence…which we just can’t get yet in our “field.”2. Science fiction stories look at the innovation or impact of technology (often on a futuristic setting)…so you could examine the meters, gauges, and devices that the team uses to try and detect ghosts.3. Science fiction usually has a setting in the future, in alternative timelines, or in an historical past that contradicts known facts of history or the archaeological record (from Wikipedia.) GHOST HUNTRESS is set in the present day in a fictional town of Radisson, Georgia. I used a fictional town so I could mold and form it into whatever I wanted. However, there is a great tie to the past of the town, specifically, the Civil War and all of the residual energy it left on the area. Most of the ghosts the team encounters are from this time period.I don’t know how much this helps, but maybe you can twist the assignment to address these questions. If you need more help, please don’t hesitate to ask.All the best,Marley = )www.marleygibson.com

THE SHELVING TEST- how do I study for the mandatory shelving test to get a job at the library.
In order to get a job at the library, I must take a shelving test. I have no idea of anything about the dewey decimal system and I need A LOT of help!! How do I study for this? What should I expect?I NEED HELP!
Dewey decimal system must be known. There are different ways to file the books in the card catalog (ex author or subject). On the shelves they go by numbers. They are arranged by numbers (ex fiction non-fiction biography etc). It is not a difficult system. You can learn and read about the Dewey decimal filling system which I would recommend doing. Years ago they taught this to all kids in elementary school. I guess it must have been something that was cut along the way.http://www.oclc.org/dewey/Go to the Library look up some books…find them… put them back where they go…repeat the process
How are fiction books organized on the library shelves.
Some libraries have them divided by genre (ie. mystery, western, romance, sci-fi). Then they are shelved alphabetically according to the author’s last name.
How do you shelve books in a library.
I know you shelf by numbers in the non fiction section and you shelve by the author’s last name in the fiction section, but how do u shelve the books in the non fiction section with numbers pass the decimal point. ex. 635. 790. I know that it goes chronicalogically with the numbers 635. Now with the numbers…
In the Dewey Decimal System, they are just that — decimal numbers, with smaller numbers first. (I made these numbers up; I don’t know that they really exist.)635635.009635.09635.1635.309635.38635.3815635.39635.9635.999636etc.The Library of Congress cataloging system, usually used in college and university libraries, is very different, so if you’re using that, don’t go by this advice.
How did libraries determine fiction or non fiction for books..
Searched Uncle Tomss cabin in non fiction section and was shocked to find it in fiction section. In those days people believed Harriet Beacher Stow’s book was true and reacted from it like it was. Want to know who, when and what determined a work of fiction from truth other then the author’s claim which is…
Uncle Tom’s Cabin is a novel and as such is properly located in the fiction section. Stowe herself never denied that it was a fictional account drawn from non-fictional sources of inspiration. In fact, Stowe followed her novel with another book, A Key to Uncle Tom’s Cabin, the purpose of which was to cite the sources she drew her inspiration from and prove that although her book was a novel it’s depiction of slavery was not exaggerated and the points she was making were valid. As she points out, by going through her book character by character and citing her inspiration, she did base many of her characters on real people, but that doesn’t alter the fact that it is a novel.http://utc.iath.virginia.edu/uncletom/ke…The fact that people reacted to the novel with great intensity is neither necessary or sufficient for it to be considered non-fictional. If you look at the list of books that have been banned in different places throughout the world, and especially in the West, the list is dominated by fictional works, showing that people often react intensely to stories that may have a basis in reality but that are works of the imagination.As to who determines what category a book falls into, there is no hard-and-fast rule as to who determines that. A writer may write a book that is fictional and pass it off to their publisher as autobiographical, or vice versa. A publisher may decide that an autobiographical work will sell better if it’s marketed as a novel, or vice versa (remember A Million Little Pieces?) Over time a work that is generally accepted as fictional may come to be seen as more of a memoir, or, once again, vice versa.These days, the publisher usually makes it clear what category a book falls into, to make it easier for bookstores to shelve books and for customers to find and buy them, by indicating its category somewhere on or in the book, on the back cover, the dust jacket, the copyright page or even in the blurb. Also, this confusion over fiction vs. non-fiction and which section to locate a book in is primarily a problem in public libraries, as university and college libraries generally utilize the Library of Congress System, which does not separate fiction and non-fiction, instead of the Dewey Decimal System, which does.Hope that helps. Cheers.
I was thinking of volunteering at my public library, and I was wondering how to look up a book..
I never had to go to the library because I had the internet. so please dont give me mean answers. thank you
Having the internet doesn’t mean you don’t need the library, too, as your impending volunteerism proves!Your library probably has a computer catalog, rather than a card catalog. If they have remote access (i.e., from home) you can practice looking stuff up before you even show up to volunteer. That will impress them!Do you mean you need to find out how to find books on the shelf, once you have their call number?A novel will usually have a call number like this:FICROWLING… for a JK Rowling book. Most libraries shelve fiction similar to this, alphabetically by author’s name.Nonfiction is trickier but not hard. We use the Dewey Decimal system, which is more complicated than you need to know about. But attached is a run-down, from the Wikipedia.Because it’s a decimal system, the numbers after the decimal point are NOT whole numbers, meaning you find “.2” BEFORE “.204” but AFTER “.198”.It really does make sense after a little use. So if you REALLY want to impress the librarians, look up stuff in the catalog and go find it enough times that you’re familiar with Dewey before you begin volunteering.Good luck! We need good volunteers, instead of the lazy bums we usually get!
