Trying to add The Message? by Avam Hale to Bookshelf

Post by Mabel6 » 31 May 2018, 12:41

Hi,

I have been trying to add the book The Message? by Avam Hale to my bookshelf as it is the book of the day but I get the below error message:

Error!
Error details: The book you are trying to add has been deleted by a moderator.

I noticed on Twitter there is another BOTD but I was able to add that book (Love and Compassion is My Religion: A Beginner's Book Into Spirituality by Jane Zarse) to my bookshelf successfully but not this book.

Can someone please assist? Not sure if I am the only one receiving this error.

Thank you,
Mabel

I think it is an error. I saw the message on Twitter, but it was deleted.

Please try again: The Message?

I just got the same message. I read the sample and wanted to add the book to my bookshelves right away so I wouldn't forget. Then, I was going to continue on to the other Bonus Entry options in the Daily Giveaway.

I don't feel comfortable promoting a book that has been deleted, so I suppose I will miss out on the bonus entries in the Daily Giveaway.

Doesn't really seem fair. But, c'est la vie...
I would like to know what happened. It seemed to be an interesting book.

Maybe it was mistake?? If I find out anything, I'll let you know.

Silly me, using the link worked for me as well. Manually doing it did not work. Thank you, Gali!
