Deleting a book from my shelf

Post by lavellan » 28 Dec 2017, 20:20

I was wondering if there was a way to delete a book from my shelf. I accidentally added the same book twice and I can't figure out how to delete the duplicate.

I went ahead and merged them.

In future, when dealing with duplicates, it is always better (and easier) to use the report option. By reporting the incorrect version, it is automatically removed from your shelves.

To report, all you need is to copy the url from the correct version, and paste it into the "good book" field when reporting. :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.
