Bettie This could be the list D refers to...

http://www.modernlibrary.com/top-100/...


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Yes, that's it.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Wow, that's an ambitious goal ... not exactly the lightest reading matter on that list! Good luck!!


message 5: by Ben (new)

Ben This list is a duplicate of the other "Top 100" Modern Library lists. Just search for "Modern Libreary" and you will see what I mean.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads There is no way that I know of for members (or regular librarians) to delete a list.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Removed Isn't It Pretty To Think So?. Spam. Not on the Random House 100 list.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Welcome to the wonderful world of Amazon. You can create content, but if it suits their purposes, you can no longer delete it on your own. Same with reviews on Ammy: if you delete them, they disappear from the page, but they are not also deleted from Amazon's database (as the Ammy community outreach persons explained once upon a time, when they were still actually communicating with reviewers in a meaningful way). I wouldn't be surprised to learn that the same is now true for Goodreads as well.

There's been a further cutback on GR librarian powers, too -- e.g., we can no longer edit quotes once they've been made a "quote of the day." (That's new -- until now, librarians were only prohibited from editing quotes that have 500+ "likes.")


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Well, I don't think we've ever been able to delete a list with votes on it, or more than just the creator's.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) I distinctly recall deleting lists with books (and, hence, votes) on them ... my own and others'. (E.g., duplicate/triplicate/quadruplicate lists clearly created only by mistake or as a result of a bug in the GR system.) At the time, I was actually surprised "ordinary" librarians were given that much power, because the potential for abuse seemed obvious. I only did it rarely for that very reason -- only if/when I was absolutely certain the list had no earthly reason for existing and I was not interfering with the list creator's intentions.

I don't mind not/no longer being able to delete other people's lists. But I WOULD still like to be able to delete my own if the thought ever occurs to me -- and by that, I mean delete completely, not just remove from the face of GR while still slumbering somewhere below the surface.

Both 'The Board's List' as well as 'The Reader's List', I assume, as there are already books from both on this Listopia?

At Goodreads, we love reading (shocker, I know). There's just nothing like curling up on the couch with a cup of coffee or tea and burying...

Anyone can add books to this list.
