This is a conversation we've had before that I won't be having again. Remove the books which don't belong and add them to your own list. You can have your fun without ruining mine.


message 3: by Chris (new)

Chris Chapman thanks for the invite Aubrey. Seems I have some reading to do ...


message 4: by Dustin (new)

Dustin Thank you, Aubrey! I'll be bookmarking this one.:)


message 5: by K (new)

K Aubrey, thanks for putting this list on Goodreads!


message 6: by Loreley (new)

Loreley The Story of Zahra is added twice, should I remove duplicates?

Yes, please, as well as a couple listed above that were added by someone refusing to respect the integrity of the list.

done.
I also removed the note from description since it's no longer relevant and added a few tags, I hope you don't mind.

Very useful list!


message 9: by Fiona (new)

Fiona Sinclair I found Donia Maher's book. I hope its okay to add it.


message 10: by BookLovingLady (last edited Apr 18, 2019 10:38PM) (new)

BookLovingLady In spite of the "Do not add books to this list" in the description, books have been added. I have therefore removed When a Bulbul Sings, Where Do Dreams and Dreaming Go?: A Palestinian Quaker in America and Woman at Point Zero as they were not added by the creator of this list.
