message 10: by Melissa (new)

Melissa (melitious) Sheesh, I haven't read another book yet. I'm halfway through my second, which should add about 10 more shelves. :-) Sick baby at home leads to very little reading getting done.

Good job, everyone!


message 11: by Melissa (new)

Melissa (melitious) Just added a kid's book I read with my son last night! Almost forgot about it!

1. 2 books
2. 72 total shelves


message 12: by Joanie (new)

Joanie | 61 comments 1. 3 books total
2. 56 shelves touched

I actually think the number is higher but I was having some trouble with goodreads today. When I would search it would say that 108 people listed this book on this shelf but then when I'd go to the shelf it would say "there are no users with this book on their shelves" and the book wouldn't be there. This happened a bunch of times to me today-anyone else having this problem? The other weird thing was that my book kept coming up listed on shelves like "sookie stackhouse"-I could see if one or two people accidentally put a book on the wrong shelf but 120? Weird.

Hm, Joanie, it could be the editions? sometimes when they're not combine under the same title, they'll show you weird things??


message 14: by Angie (new)

Angie (angiebowen) 1. 6 books total
2. 53 shelves touched


message 15: by Jen B (new)

Jen B (jennybee618) Ok, so my math skills are horrible - I'm at 84, not 94. It doesn't change my position on the board at all. I've added some formulas to the spreadsheet to add things up for me so that I don't have to count! I've only got 10 fingers...going higher than that is apparently more than I can handle :)


message 16: by Catamorandi (new)

Catamorandi (wwwgoodreadscomprofilerandi) I finally figured it out, Karen. So far I have:

1. 1 book
2. 54 shelves


message 17: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 286 comments 2 books
48 shelves

Obviously reading series doesn't add many shelves to the total. Moving on to something a bit different for my next read!


message 18: by Lauren (new)

Lauren | 247 comments 2 Books
66 Shelves

I am almost finished book 3, but I was quite dismayed to find it didn't add any shelves!

Amanda A (carolinabookworm) | 268 comments 7 books

17: Natasha, welcome to post your results anytime for books you've finished reading on 10 Feb (local time) :)

18: Too funny, Jen. It's all good

19: Woo hoo, Randi! Glad you're still with us!


message 21: by Cathy (new)

Cathy | 90 comments 2 books 81 shelves


message 22: by Laura (new)

Laura (apenandzen) Sorry my 2/10 reporting is a little late:

2 books, 96 shelves


message 23: by Joanie (new)

Joanie | 61 comments Okay, I finally got my stuff sorted out. My corrected number of shelves touched is 73. Of course now that I've spent so much time going through lists I probably won't finish another book in time for the next update!
