Stephen (havan) | 335 comments If one looks at Rachel Cohn's list of books, the first two appear to be duplicates as do the 3rd and 4th entries. I looked at the details closely but couldn't spot a reason that they were doubled up on the list. Can anyone else spot something that's causing the error?

I'll take a look, but more eyes the merrier :)

All fixed.

Krazykiwi | 1767 comments Oh jeepers. I didn't look at that. Now I wish I still hadn't.

Stephen (havan) | 335 comments OK Thanks for cleaning up the error I spotted but couldn't figure out.

I've reduced the number of bad author entries for David Levithan a bit but there are a number of others. Mostly double barreled names where he collaborated with someone else and they are both GoodReads authors.
