I added a book that had a wrong title and another with the author's name misspelled. Now they're stuck in my shelves. Is there some way to delete them?

The edit option only allows moving the books to other shelves. Or is there another edit function that I am missing?

I actually moved the offending books to my Not Interested shelf and hid them haha.

You should report it via the shelves and a mod will edit them.

Thanks Gali for the speedy reply.
Will do that.

I have duplicate books in my shelves because of some minute differences between subtitles. This is especially true for books in a series. I've reported them for deletion but they are still there. Do I need to go another step? Thanks!

I am having this issue too...

I added a few books to two different shelves on accident and now they are showing on both shelves. I wish there was an option to delete them...

If you copy the url from the correct version (no typos, fits the preferred format (which can be found in the bookshelf FAQs)), and paste it into the "good book" option when reporting a book, it will be marked for merger. :tiphat:
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

The greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse.
