Thanks to everyone who has submitted a title for one of the four open lists so far. Just as a reminder, if a title you're submitting hasn't been reviewed at AAR, or received a grade of C+ or lower at AAR, please remember to include a sentence describing why it should be included and the name of another site where it received a positive review, if available.

Thanks!

Thanks to everyone who has submitted a form so far for the four lists that are open. We've received a lot of great suggestions for additions to the Favorite Funnies and Beta Heroes Lists, but nowhere near as many for the Marriages of Convenience and Troubled Marriages Lists.

Not to worry, you still have over one week, until Sunday, September 16 around midnight to submit more suggestions. The form is at:

http://likesbooks.com/subcrit.html



Keep those submissions coming!

Okay, I got my suggested additions together, but I must say, I had a little trouble delineating between "Troubled Marriages" and "Marriages of Convenience" because so many of the forced or arranged or circumstantial marriages start out troubled! For that reason, maybe they belong in both categories? I don't know. I guess maybe troubled marriages should be left to those in which the couple enters the wedded state for love or with the best intentions but then it falls apart.

That's really interesting, Sandylynn, and something I hadn't thought about before.

I just want to make sure of something, all of the books already on the lists will remain on the lists, right? The submissions are for possible new additions only.

That's correct, library addict, with a possible minor exception or two. While I was inserting the review grades into the revised HTML for one of the lists (sorry, can't remember which one), I discovered that a title listed as being written by an author (again, sorry, can't remember which one) didn't exist. I've flagged it and if I can't figure out which book it's supposed to be it will be removed. But other than obvious errors like that, what's on the lists will stay on the lists.

Will books on the list be removed if they don't meet the criteria we need for submission - a C+ or higher at AAR/ another site's positive review? Or do the books on the list already have those?

Nana, we're not touching the books that are already on the list unless we discover a clear mistake, such as a title an author never wrote, an author who doesn't exist, etc.
