Alicia Hello fellow Goodreads-ers!

I love that this list is catching on, and I'll definitely be adding some of these books to my to-read shelf. But I'm deleting some books that aren't indie books. This list is for self-published or small-press-published books.

I'm being as diligent as I can before deleting something--attempting to identify the publisher and then checking out the publisher's website. If you think I've deleted a book you voted for without proper grounds, please respond and let me know. I just wanted you guys to understand why stuff is getting deleted.
