You can cross off any shelves for books you finished by Oct. 31."


I'm confused - I think the question referred to whether we should cross off books in #10 for any shelves we hit in #9 that were new in #9.

well, shelves are completely subjective. So, someone might set up a shelf called "1" for books they think are top books they've read, or books that they plan to read as #1 priorities, etc. These aren't anything official - just shelves that people set up for themselves. And, if lots of people set up a shelf with the same name, then you'll get a GR shelf with lots of books on it, even if people are using it to mean different things.

A little while after I found this out, I went to my books because I wanted to check something on my shelf of books for summer reading challenge possibles. When I clicked on the shelf (which still showed in my list of shelves), I got the message that there were no results. Hmmm..... I then looked more closely at the name of the shelf, and found that it had a double dash in it. So, I went through the re-naming process and re-named the shelf to eliminate the extra dash. Then, when I clicked on the re-named shelf, I got my list back.

So, it's not just that double dashes will no longer be allowed - it's retroactive. The books that were on the original shelf were listed as being on that shelf name, minus the second dash.
