lark benobi Help with editing the list is welcome.

If you see a mistake feel free to correct it yourself, rather than complain about it in the comments section.

I also appreciate anyone taking it on themselves to edit out any inclusion of books you notice that happen to get many votes from anonymous new accounts, or that are obviously spammy self-published novels.

Personally I won't be concerned with any mistakes on the list beyond those in the top 25 or so entries.


Dudewiththeface Curious about this thing. What's the Tournament of books? How should I interpret this list?


message 4: by lark benobi (new)

lark benobi is Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI (#7) fiction? It seems not.

It's non-fiction/history.

Also, The Fact of a Body: A Murder and a Memoir/ #23 is a memoir.


message 6: by C (new)

C It seems the votes for Resurrection of Joan Ashby might be spammy? A lot of new users with barely any other activity on their GoodReads accounts.


message 7: by Kathy (new)

Kathy C wrote: "It seems the votes for Resurrection of Joan Ashby might be spammy? A lot of new users with barely any other activity on their GoodReads accounts."

Yes, and most of those voters voted for just one book.


message 8: by Amy (new)

Amy The Fact of a Body is a memoir--not fiction. Also The Radium Girls, The Stranger in the Woods and Theft By Finding are nonfiction. Joan Ashby is spamming up every possible list on Goodreads. It's obviously the publisher/author's coordinated effort. Votes for London Can You Wait? also look very suspicious.

Poingu, would love to help remove books and convert this into the 2018 Longlist. How can I remove books?

I don't think the point of this list is to change it to the existing long list. That already exists on TMN site. This list is for predictions and wishes of what might have been on the tournament long list.
