Lobstergirl Where is the link to the original Chapters list?

Books are getting spammed onto this list which do not belong. I've removed a couple obvious ones but I suspect there are more on the list that need to be removed.


message 2: by Kat (new)

Kat Arnett Books that should not be on this list:
1984, The Book Thief, Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl, Animal Farm, A Tale of Two Cities, Profit Over People, War and Peace, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian, The Lovely Bones, A Thousand Splendid Sons, Defying Hitler, Prophecy of the Heir, The Curve of Time, Learning to Kiss in the Snow, Noughts & Crosses, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Lick the Razor, Redeeming Love, The Poisonwood Bible, Collapse, Anne Frank (by Susanna Davidson), Bury My Heart, Memories of Anne Frank, Revolution, Thirteen Reasons Why.


message 3: by Kat (new)

Kat Arnett Unfortunately I can't remove the ones that people have added to the list, I had initially made it for me so it was disappointing to find that other people had changed it.


message 4: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl I removed all the ones you listed.

If you are not a librarian, you can always request in the librarian group for any books to be removed that do not belong.


message 5: by Kat (new)

Kat Arnett Good to know! Thank you for your help :)


message 6: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Removed Never Go with Your Gut. This is not on the Chapters/Indigo list.
