Thanks for making this list, Rachel! I suggest that you add a description stating that no books may be added to the list. Then, if someone does add books, the GR librarians will remove them.

It was announced a few days ago! https://themorningnews.org/article/th...


message 5: by Megan (new)

Megan I deleted Dear George, Dear Mary: A Novel of George Washington's First Love by Mary Calvi. It is not one of the 76 books on the 2019 ToB longlist and was added by a user clearly spamming lists.


message 6: by Michelle (new)

Michelle The Kill Club and Iron Gold should not be on this list.


message 7: by Megan (new)

Megan I've deleted those two books from the list. Thanks, Michelle.


message 8: by Greg (new)

Greg I'm thinking I don't know much about literature.
