I think it got even worse today. I was finding quite a few yesterday that are no longer working today.
Had the issue with a couple of other books...
Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
Night and Day by Virginia Wolfe
Only way I have found my books is by looking for them in my shelves. I am sure it would be even more dreadful if I was trying to search for a book that wasn't already on my shelf and the search was broken.
I can only place a specific book in the post by finding it in my shelf and then clicking on it and using the number in the url to manually type in the book on the post. It is just sad when you finish quite a few books and some of them are working and others aren't.
These have to be the only times when I absolutely HATE three day weekends. Otherwise...well I work so it doesn't really matter either way.
It may be getting worked on or maybe something happened tonight that shouldn't have. However, I noticed the issue while trying to "add book/author" to a post. When I was looking up the book it wouldn't appear as a common book. I know I did the spelling correctly because it happened on more than 5 books when looking. This also happened when typing the books in the general search bar on the top.
Some of the books that I found this issue with were
The Gunslinger by Stephen King
Divine By Mistake by P. C. Cast
Lover Awakened by J. R. Ward
Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr
Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman
It wasn't a problem when I was updating some posts with one of the books. However when I was trying to update different books on a single post, it go very annoying.
I personally like that it shows the popular books when I click on that shelf. Then it shows books that are similar to the books that I have read.

Thanks Osho! I didn't see that one. There are a few in the group that are acting wonky.
I am seeming to have problems with a couple of threads in one of my groups as well. It isn't a very high count thread either as there are some with higher counts. Here are the two links:http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/7...http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/7...
Also if you add books from your 'My Books' page it also doesn't pop up.

You can mark it as currently-reading for a second time from your "My Books" page. It will keep the previous read date unless you change that when you finish it.
I would also live that. Or set up your own tracker for whatever challenge it is.
Another reset for me please :)
Can I please get a reset too please?
On the last update there were a lot of new problems that happened. It is taking a lot of patience.

Meghan, your recs look current to me. What's wrong specifically?"
They seem to be current however. It has books within the recommendation that I have one, already or recently read. Also it has "added" under a bunch of them. It never said that in the past. Maybe it is just doing this now.
Mine is still not working properly? Not sure what could be wrong?
Can I please get mine reset. I have a bunch that I already added still in there.
There are also huge spaces after you underline something for instance:May 2012

I have had this happen about 3 times. Each time I have just sent a message to the person who posted the giveaway and I would get the books within a few weeks. The first one came with an apology from the person that was sending it. The second one had the incorrect address on the package, so it was lost in the mail for 2 more months. The third which I am still waiting on, the author got back to me through the message and said she would not be sending it until the actual release date which was different than the one on Goodreads.
Mine usually go into my to-read list. However I go to the arrow and put it into my wishlist usually. I am not sure if yours are not. You may need your bookshelf reset if it doesn't show up after a little (maybe a day).
