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.
