Lennongirl Liebe Leute, bitte fügt dieser Liste NUR zeitgenössische Thriller deutscher bzw. deutschsprachiger Autoren hinzu. Keine Übersetzungen, kein YA etc - das ist nicht Sinn dieser Liste und verzerrt die Abfrage total! Danke.

What a shame that my list has been corrupted. Is it so difficult to add, as the description says it, German Contemporary Thrillers *only*? Written (originally, of course, duh) by German speaking authors only? Arnaldur Indridason is Icelandic, how is Iceland = Germany? David P. Elliot is from the UK, that's not Germany, either. Imogen Rose is Swedish, how is Sweden = Germany? And how is Imogen Rose's YA fantasy book a German Contemporary Thriller at all???

It would be nice of those people who put the wrong books on this list to take them off. Sadly, I haven't found a way do delete this books myself or delete this list altogether. I didn't create this list for random books to be added, but to get inspired for more/other *Contemporary Thrillers* written by *German (speaking)* authors. Not thrillers written by Icelandic, British or Swedish authors, not fantasy YA stuff. All I'm asking for you is to respect this wish. Thank you.

Sorry about adding translated material to the list Lennongirl.

I've tried to find out how to delete it too, but I can't...:(


message 3: by Lennongirl (new)

Lennongirl No problem :)

If you're on this page (the list page http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/11...), you should see the books you voted for in the right hand column. You can add, edit and delete yoour choices there (delete by pressing the X of the book in question).

Hope that helps - and thanks so much for understanding :)


message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

I've done that already.
What I hoped to do was delete the book entirely from this list.

Do you know how?


message 5: by Lennongirl (new)

Lennongirl Oh, okay, I got it wrong then, sorry. No, I don't know how to do this, either, if I had, I'd simply taken it off ;) I guess as long as a book still has a vote, it's on there.


message 6: by [deleted user] (new)

By the way, it's really great that you've created this list...just wanted to say that I do enjoy reading german novels and your list will help me in finding native german authors. thanks


message 7: by Lennongirl (new)

Lennongirl You're very welcome! That's just what I was hoping for back when I was creating this list, that readers might get inspired and finde more books and/or authors of a specific genre and language :)

(Sorry about the late reply, I somehow missed this).


message 8: by Carolin (new)

Carolin Hoppala, scheinbar bin ich auch zu blöd zum Lesen...ich war mir so sicher, da würde auch "Krimis" stehen, sorry. Jetzt hab ich deine Liste mit Krimis gespamt und weiß nicht, wie ich sie wieder weg machen kann :(


message 9: by Lennongirl (new)

Lennongirl @ C_, wenn du auf die Liste deiner "Votes" geht, kannst du da editieren - oder nenne mir einfach die Titel, die deiner Meinung nach nicht passen, ich muss hier sowieso mal wieder aufräumen ;)


message 10: by Rara (new)

Rara Beretta does any of Nele Neuhaus or Michael Kobr&Volker Klüpfel books fit in this category?


message 11: by Lennongirl (new)

Lennongirl I haven't read any, but from what I gather, they seem to be more of the "classical" crime/detective type than thriller/mystery?


message 12: by Rara (new)

Rara Beretta i see, i haven't read them either. i was just searching for german thrillers to read, and their names came along.
