Hi everyone! This is Julia of The Broke and the Bookish, formerly blogging on my own at The Competitive Bibliomaniac.
I read mostly historical romance, but can often be found reviewing paranormal romance, young adult books (mostly distopian/fantasy), fantasy/sci-fi, classics, and the occasional non-fiction book about languages.
Feel free to follow and reblog!
The latest sad news from GRs. I can't believe after all the hardwork that librairians have done for GRs that this is how they repay them. We worked our assess off, giving up free time, to split the site from Amazon a few years ago, and now they are just letting it all back in, tromping over all the data that we've worked so hard to correct.
I was beginning to think I had acted rashly abandoning GR, but now I know I didn't.

Short version: Kindle/Amazon imports are now locked and can't be manually edited.
Even though they are frequently wildly wrong, nor do they account for all the special cases and data normalization that GR librarians have spent years doing. This on top of the recent revelation that Amazon imports also undoes librarian edits where data clashes.
