John Burns Can't believe more people have voted on this list than on the 19th century list. Phillistines!


message 32: by Christina (new)

Christina Why are there books on here that were published after 2000? Aren't people on this site supposed to be able to read and therefore follow directions?

Haha I will accept that award gratefully! Come on, people, just follow instructions! One of my biggest pet peeves, I'll be the first to admit.

Which books are they? I'm a "librarian" so i can remove them if you tell me which they are, but, just like a real librarian, am too lazy to find out for myself.


message 28: by Christina (new)

Christina I don't see the ones that stood out to me before but when I get time I'll go through and hunt down any that don't belong. :)


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Removed for wrong decade:

The Power of One, by Bryce Courtney (1989)


message 26: by Em (new)

Em Kite Runner is 2004


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Removed for wrong decade:

The Kite Runner, by Khaled Hosseini (2003)


Devan, Sarcasm Expert I guess then that Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone is so popular it deserved to be on the list twice then


message 23: by Holden (new)

Holden I'm trying to add Frindle, which was published sometime in the late 1990s, but for some reason it won't let me because it says it was published in 1939. The author wasn't even BORN in 1939. Is there a librarian here that can fix this? Thanks!


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Yeah, Frindle came out in 1996. Changing the publication date.


message 21: by Chris (last edited Jan 21, 2011 03:33AM) (new)

Chris Johnson Where's American Psycho...And Toni Morrison Paradise


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads You could vote for them.


message 19: by Chris (last edited Jan 22, 2011 05:44AM) (new)

Chris Johnson ^yeah all the way on page 2 or 3 or some shit. Or not even, having to add the books myself on the list.


message 18: by Lilac (new)

Lilac Harry Potter 4 came out in 2000

So it did. I'll remove it.


message 16: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Galapagos by Kurt Vonnegut came out in 1985


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Do you remember where you saw it on the list?


message 14: by Sarah (new)

Sarah #124, page 2


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Thanks! I'll see if I can get it.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Removed, for not being first published in the 90s:

Galapagos, by Kurt Vonnegut (1985)


message 11: by Sara (new)

Sara Reis I'm going through this list and there are loads and loads of books that are not from 90's, I am slowly deleting some.
