message 3: by Bridget (new)

Bridget I came here searching for a book a read a long time ago and can't remember the title of - I wonder if anyone can help? It was a historical fiction set in Ancient Rome about a female healer. The detail that really stuck with me was her discovery of aspirin. thanks!


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Not familiar with that one, Bridget - you could ask at the group "What's the Name of this Book?"


message 5: by Bridget (new)

Bridget Thanks! Will do - if I find it and reread - and find it worthy - I'll be back :)


message 6: by Michael (new)

Michael Sommers Pressfield's Gates of Fire is about Greece, not Rome.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Removed: three books that were spammed by the author's author friends.


message 8: by Tom (new)

Tom Some author spam creeping in. Ones by Francis Hagan and ChristineElain Black at position 211, for example.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Removed:

Gates of Fire. Good book, but there are no Romans in it.


message 10: by Dhoakohime (last edited Aug 29, 2017 07:00AM) (new)

Dhoakohime It would be nice to be able to search books from a list... if you can somehow, I certanly have not discovered how! Added --> SPQR from Mary Beard


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads That was on there (I know because I voted for it), but searching for a title on multiple pages is a pain, isn't it?


message 12: by Dhoakohime (new)

Dhoakohime Totally! some lists have more tan 17000 titles!!


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Yeah, and the long lists in particular can be hit by the "can't combine duplicates" bug, which is extra annoying.
