Therefore I Read.

There are lots of other things I could be doing, but I choose to read instead. These books are the reason why I read. Please add your books that are the reason why you choose to read.

Booklovinglady A bit of an eclectic mix, my votes, but as those books are the reason why I choose to read...


message 2: by Saturday's (new)

Saturday's Child I love an eclectic mix of reading as we all have our reasons for reading and loving books. :)


message 3: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl Spam at #1. Voted onto 17 pages of lists.


message 4: by Saturday's (new)

Saturday's Child Again! - why must people do this to the lists?


message 5: by Rosa (new)

Rosa What's with all the random tags?


message 6: by Saturday's (new)

Saturday's Child Lynessa Layne - Books 1 & 3 on this list - SPAM!

So the list turns up under different genres for people to vote on - or they can find it by various keyword searches on lists.


message 8: by Saturday's (new)

Saturday's Child Lynessa Layne - Books 4 & 6 on this list - she has spamed it yet again! Booklovinglady would you please be so kind as to remove them?

Just a pity people like Lynessa Layne finds it and SPAMS it!

That seems a little spammy itself.

You can see it that way if you like.

Rosa I didn't like.

So what gives you the right to remove all of the tags from this list? Why interfere/remove tags from another persons list just because you don't like it?

It is really rude and disrespectful.

Goodreads has lots and lots of lists created by people such as Lynessa Layne just to get her books spamed out there but no one removes those lists and yet you remove the tags on my list.


message 16: by Rosa (new)

Rosa I’d remove those lists if I could, but I can’t. It’s also hard to tell if a list was made for the purpose of spamming. It’s easier to tell if a list has a paragraph of irrelevant tags. This list is about favorites, no particular genre or subject matter. That’s all it should be tagged.
I didn’t remove the tags because I didn’t like them, I removed them because they were spam and irrelevant. No spam!


message 17: by Rosa (last edited Nov 26, 2020 02:40PM) (new)

Rosa I am not a nasty little troll. I’m sorry I deleted your hard work, but I didn’t think you would listen to me if I told you why I thought you should remove them.
Also, what you just wrote has nothing to do with my last comment. I wasn’t being impolite.
Sorry it had to go this way, Saturday’s Child. I’ll try not to be peremptory and abuse my librarian privileges again.


message 18: by Rosa (new)

Rosa If you want to know some real nasty little Goodreads trolls, I know of Cindle, Tal, and a few others.


message 19: by Saturday's (new)

Saturday's Child Hi Booklovinglady - hate to be a pest by Lynessa Layne has Spammed this list once again at place 22 and 44. Would you please be so kind as to once again remove these books from this list? Once again greatly appreciated if you do. :)

I would have been happy to remove or revise the tags I had on this list if you had of just asked me to do so and explained why. I am always fine with removing books I have added to lists if the creator of the list asks me to (or if my books are removed). I just don't appreciate someone just removing my tags on my lists without asking me if they can or explaining to me why they did. My apologies for calling you a nasty little troll I have deleted that comment.

Not familiar with them - do they spend time being nasty on lists?

Your response in message 13 when I said it seemed spammy made me think that you had no intention of listening to me. I guess I was mistaken.

Cindle, Tal, and the others were irritants on the Feedback Group, which is gone now, which is both good and bad.
