Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Charles Dickens was French? Sacre bleu!


message 2: by Lynda (new)

Lynda Tickled me too.


message 3: by Jim (new)

Jim Ah, mon ami Charles Dickens!


message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

What's the criterion for making the list: written in French, or written by a French author (or, in the case of Mr. Dickens, halfway taking place in France???)?


message 5: by Lobstergirl (last edited Jun 30, 2010 09:52PM) (new)

Lobstergirl I took the liberty of guillotining Dickens, until such time as la France annexes the U.K.


message 6: by Jim (new)

Jim Thank you, Lobstergirl! I don't think he was confortable with all those Frenchies.


message 7: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl De rien.


message 8: by Purple (new)

Purple Iris Why does the list show different editions of the same book? If someone adds one edition, and all editions of that title are combined, shouldn't votes for separate editions automatically combine as well? That was not well formulated. Hopefully someone knows what I mean.


message 9: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Should be fixed now - editions don't automatically combine, a librarian has to run the "eliminate duplicates" function.


message 10: by Purple (new)

Purple Iris Ah, thanks!
