message 1: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Spam at #3 (Surviving the Fourth Cycle) and #4 (Adversity Builds Character).

Sad.


message 2: by BookLovingLady (last edited Nov 07, 2015 11:47PM) (new)

BookLovingLady This list made me realize that by far most of the memoirs/auto-biographies I own are written by women...


message 3: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Removed "Profiles in Courage" which is not a memoir. I don't think some of the others are memoirs, either. "Maus" and "Managing Bubbie" are telling the story of other people, not the author's own story.


message 4: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Someone changed the title of the list, so I reverted back to the list creator's original. I don't understand the point of going around constantly changing lists other people have made.


message 5: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart There is spam currently sitting at the #3 position. Such Unfortunates by Andrew Mann.


message 6: by Karla (new)

Karla This list has been manipulated to have 'such unfortunates' at number three. If you look at all the accounts that voted for it, all of them were created recently, all of them voted only once for this book and all of them have 0 friends. Please remove this book.

Although you are undoubtedly right, I'm afraid I can't do that, as there is one voter who voted 2 out of 2.... But the creator of this list is a librarian herself, and as the creator of the list it is her prerogative to remove books from this list. So, ... send her a message, I'd say 🙂


message 8: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart I agree, it's up to the list creator.

The other option to have more people to vote for legitimate books so this one gets knocked out of the top 5.

It's annoying, though. The author is spamming this book everywhere. He and his team are adding it to lists for fiction, even though it appears to be non-fiction, and YA even though it appears to be adult. I even found it on a list for MM romance novels!


message 9: by Jessica (new)

Jessica Haider I am the list creator. I hate spam voting. :)


message 10: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl "Managing Bubbie" @11 doesn't appear to fit the list definition, plus the vast majority of "people" who voted for it appear to be sock puppet accounts.


message 11: by BookLovingLady (new)

BookLovingLady #485 The Road by Cormac McCarthy is fiction....


message 12: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Thanks for the heads up. I removed The Road.


message 13: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Promotional author spam in the #3 position. :(


message 14: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Removed.


OropezaSMadelaine What a great, enduring story of survival! These kids are fighters!
