No matter what I do to change my favorite genre, it always goes back to Arts and Photography. I have never chosen Arts and Photography as a fav genre, but it is on my settings every day. I clear it ( I don't want any genres right now) and when I go back to the page it says A&P again.Help!!

Perhaps if you don't choose or set a genre, it is defaulting to the first one, which happens to be Arts and Photography?  I know there are a couple of other sections in the site that will auto-fill if you do not choose an option.  This may be another one.


Don''t know of a"fix" for this, except to set a genre in there of your choice.

Art and Photography is the first genre in the list. If you do not select a genre, the first one in the list will autofill as the option cannot be left blank.

Well, when I signed up a week ago they were all blank.  And they have remained blank all week until today.  The note above says it is not necessary to choose any genres. So it doesn't' make sense that the first one would auto-fill. And if they auto-fill, then why are none of the others filled in?

There are some places that will auto fill. Like the Currently Reading spot on your profile. If you do not enter anything, it will fill with recent trades.

There are also some spots that you need to click the Save option. Not sure if this is one or not.
