It might be because the original publiction year is not filled in.

Oh okay, I'll dm the authors, maybe they'll add it.


message 6: by Reader (new)

Reader It won't let me add the book I wanted to add either. It says "not published this year", but it was published this year. Something is wrong.

It might be that the original publication date is not filled in...

Andrew Shanahan Hey! Hope you're well. A reader of mine flagged that they had voted for my book (Before and After) and that it was at the top of the list but they then reported that the book had gone missing from the list. Any idea why it might have been taken off?

Can't the reader who flagged it replace it?

Pretty sure there's no way to reinstall the votes, unless a GR employee has the inclination and ability.

Thanks for the reply, I guess they could but I still don't know why it was taken off. So possibly, it runs the risk of them adding it back on, only for it to be removed again. I'm fine if it's a genre / cover / publisher issue, I'd just like to know so I can let readers know. I'll ask if they can add it and see if it disappears again.

Yes, I suspected it might need to be a GR employee but it doesn't let me know why it was taken off. Oh well, it's a nice sunny Saturday and there's probably more valuable things I could waste my time on! Thanks for the answer.

It might have been taken off by mistake. After all, librarians are also people :-)

Haha! I refuse to believe it. Librarians are infallible.

If you want to vote for these, you have to do it yourself by tapping the button under each one that says, "Vote for this book."


message 17: by Deborah (new)

Deborah Provide a link to books first published this year that can't be added and I will fix them for you.

Deborah Andrew wrote: "Hey! Hope you're well. A reader of mine flagged that they had voted for my book (Before and After) and that it was at the top of the list but they then reported that the book had gone missing from ..."

I see no reason it should have been removed. It is back on the list now, but with only one vote.

Thanks Deborah. It's a mystery, it seems for some reason a GR employee removed the votes it had. My book is still on other lists, so it seems this was the only one it was purged from. Bit weird!

No, it was a librarian, she deleted two books, I hope it was a mistake, I don't think it would do any good to flag it, it was 4 weeks ago and the other book has more than 10 votes now. Please let your fans know they can vote for it now.


message 21: by Rosalie (new)

Rosalie I added a book that was already on the list. I don't know how to delete it

You can always remove your own votes, but don't worry, I'll run check for duplicates.

Joy, if you want to vote for these books, you have to add them yourself. Use the tab at the top of the list.

Reader It won't let me add the book I want to add. It says it wasn't published this year, but it was.


message 27: by Deborah (new)

Deborah Reader wrote: "It won't let me add the book I want to add. It says it wasn't published this year, but it was."

What book? Provide a link and I might be able to fix it. The list goes by the original published date, but that field is blank for lots of books.


message 28: by Reader (new)

Reader https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/5...

Thank you. The publication date is listed as April, but the book was delayed and didn't come out until August. But it was still released in 2020.
