Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Err. How come this list has ballooned into three times its original length? El, do you want to see it restored to the original 50 entries?


message 2: by Ben (new)

Ben I assume the attached link contains the list of books that SHOULD be here.
http://www.chapters.indigo.ca/fall/50...


I cann help delete those that don't belong.


message 3: by Ben (new)

Ben Then again, it appears that the link above is so completely different from what is on this list, that I am thinking the list creator had something else in mind.

Not going to delete anything unless I get a request from the list creator.


message 4: by Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (last edited Nov 07, 2012 09:23PM) (new)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Could you clarify what you had in mind, El?

ETA: Should we assume that the 50 she voted for was the list she had in mind?

That's the assumption I'd tend to go by as well ...


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads It'd be my best guess. But I'd love some clarification.


message 7: by Sosa (new)

Sosa White Fang by Jack London should be on here.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Removed Isn't It Pretty To Think So?. Spam. Not published 2011 or prior. Not a Chapters/Indigo selection.


message 9: by Anthea (new)

Anthea Carson Add this book Into The Mind of a Woman 5 Shortcuts to Save Your Relationship by Habib Kamara

Link is no longer active.

I deleted some obvious ones but there are still 360 books on the list rather than 50.


message 11: by Kaitlyn (new)

Kaitlyn Black I haven't gone through the whole list but if isn't on here I highly recommend added By the time you read this I'll be dead. Its a wonderful novel and can really change the views about what its like to be a teenager and going through depression.

Exactly. I second that.


message 13: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Since the link is no longer active, we have to go by what the list creator voted on in the beginning, exactly 50 books. That list is here:

https://www.goodreads.com/list/user_v...

I requested in the librarian group for the list to be culled

https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

but anyone who reads this should feel free to work on it as well.


message 14: by Mitchell (new)

Mitchell I hate vandalism. I did some maintenance on this list. Basically I voted for the original list in order and then deleted books until I got tired.
