message 1: by Mark (last edited Jun 21, 2013 07:05PM) (new)

Mark Soone Is it really that hard for people to comprehend directions? Why can't I find a list with books that were published in 2013? Especially since the list clearly states that guideline as the criteria?


message 2: by Bonnie Lynn (new)

Bonnie Lynn I was looking forward to checking it out, too. Was puzzled, then started to chuckle not long after beginning to go down the list. Oh well.


message 3: by Ginny (new)

Ginny I agree with both Mark and Bonnie Lynn. This is very misleading and I would still like a list of the tops thrillers published in 2013. I guess I'll Google that and see if I have better luck.














oogle that and see what comes up.

Isn't it possible for you to delete books that don't meet the criteria for the list?


message 5: by Elisabeth (new)

Elisabeth Learn to read directions, people! Many of these were published years ago.

I personally don't see that option...perhaps it exists for the thread/poll starter? other than that, I doubt that they grant us unlimited editing authority.


message 7: by Tasha (new)

Tasha Turner I believe the person who set up the list can remove books as I've seen that done on another list. It is annoying that people ignore the list descriptions on so many of these lists as it makes the lists useless for what they were set up for. If I know the list creator is active I will list in the comments all the books which don't belong to help them remove inappropriate books.


message 8: by Huma (new)

Huma I started to select my books then realized that no one was following the 2013 restriction....makes the list pretty useless I guess.


message 9: by Mike (new)

Mike French I just listed some of my favorites that were actually published in 2013!


message 10: by John (new)

John Very few of the book on the list were published in 2013. I voted for a couple then deleted my votes since the books were published earlier. I don't guess I've read anything published this year.


message 11: by Beth (new)

Beth Who compiled this list? The people listed as voters? What make them authorities?


message 12: by Mike (new)

Mike French Goodreads members. Any member can vote.


message 13: by Huma (new)

Huma The Goodreads librarians have the authority to modify this list. I have deleted a couple of books not published in 2013, but I suspect another librarian cleaned up the list before me.

Please cast your votes now. Also remember to report a wrongly added book to me or a GR librarian for deletion.
