from my wishlist - 12 of them.

Anyone else have this happen?

Not sure what happened. The list by author has me 12 short, but by title I'm fine.

Let's hope title wins out. :)

When you sort by author, anything without an author listed (mostly anthologies, etc.) will not be visible. They're all still there - just not viewable in that particular sort.

You do have the option to do a book edit to add the missing data. Otherwise, I recommend sorting by title or date added.

In a related missing data issue, if the genre is missing, then a book does not show up in the Search by genre under the Book Browser. It is important that we edit and update the data. The database depends on us, and our Book Data volunteers.

Maybe I'm a terrible person, but I really can't be bothered to edit book data. But, thank you to those that do!
