Is there any way to "report" books for being in the wrong genre category? I'm tired of seeing things like Nicholas Sparks and chick lit in the "Literary" and "Classics" category.

I think you can just go into book edit and change it.  Then someone who does book edits will check it out and if it's changed appropriately, the correction will be made.  It doesn't happen instantly, but usually within a couple of days, and if they can't change it for some reason, they usually send you an PM explaining why it can't be changed.  Good luck.  Pat

This would be very helpful if you would like to edit the information, Savannah. You can find the place to make these corrections on the book information page under More Options -> Edit Book Data.

It helps if you explain the edit.  All book edits are reviewed by our volunteers.  So a line explaining it will make their efforts easier and faster.
