KF-in-Georgia | 11 comments It's interesting that some of the screwed-up titles include the author's name, and others do not. At some point the titles apparently worked properly: several of the books have ratings. (Although I suppose some ratings might have been entered on the reader's Kindle.)

I hate to be one of those annoying users who are compulsive about their bookshelves, but this is the first of six books on my shelf that refuse to alphabetize properly by author's name. I probably wouldn't even notice alphabetizing errors if they didn't happen on the top of the My Books list. I may have to sort my list in reverse order to keep my sanity.

KF-in-Georgia | 11 comments It's resolved enough that it alphabetizes correctly and I can click it and the Goodreads page opens instead of giving an error message.

That's great. Thanks.
