Does anyone know how to delete from bookshelves

(Formerly the "Support, Feedback and Forum Announcements" forum.)
Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

I fixed the duplicates in your "currently reading" shelf. You're welcome. :)

I am new here and I put misspelled title with the correct on author in my bookshelves. The only thing I can do is transfer that wrong book into the Not Interested section. I suggest that admin will delete books in that Not Interested section after a given period of time say after 30 days or less. It kinda looks messy to me if more books are added to it. You know, like in e-mails. Just the trash/Not Interested section.

You should report the book via the bookshelves (instead of moving it to the Not Interested section), and a mod will fix it.
