Do you think I should contact goodreads and maybe they'd write a script to get rid of them? If they all say the exact same thing it seems possible that it could be done by a computer.

Also interesting is this one for example https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/8... doesn't have that title on amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/158...
(same with others but I didn't check all)

Clean them, or don't and leave it up as a project, but GR won't automate it.

That title was changed by the bot in Dec 2015 to include the free part.

Elizabeth, Do you think I should add this to your thread about bots over-writing stuff in the Feedback group?

Edit: Actually I'm just gonna add it. Here it is: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...

Feel free! There are descriptions that include this sort of thing, too. I see the bot inserting/deleting it.

Lieke | 3200 comments 19 pages to go

This is more rewarding then the Paperback format in the title, when you have done one of those pages there stil are more than a 100 pages to go.

but also not rewarding since most books haven't been added/reviewed by anyone....
