Fishface | 2783 comments These two books both show the same glitch:
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3...
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...

When you pull up the book page on each one the title looks fine, but when viewed on a bookshelf the titles mysteriously show an extra word: one reads "Deranged about" and the other reads "Grind Their Bones about." Is there a way to fix this?

lethe | 13664 comments It looks normal to me: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list...

Can you show what you mean?

Fishface | 2783 comments Now I found another one! here's the link to the TC group's Albert Fish shelf:
https://www.goodreads.com/group/books...

As you look down the list, you'll see that Wisteria Cottage, Deranged: The Shocking True Story of America's Most Fiendish Killer and Grind Their Bones all mysteriously have the word "about" tacked onto the end of the titles. But when you pull up those individual books to look at them on their own pages, the titles look fine.

lethe | 13664 comments If you click on 'about', you'll see that it gives extra info about the book in question. Maybe it's just some extra info that can be added to a book on a (group's) shelf?

If that isn't it, you'll have to report it in the Feedback Group, because it's not something librarians can help with (it's nothing to do with the actual book record).
