Is anyone having problems tagging books?  About a week ago I added a couple books to my BIR.  When I added tags to them, it would add the tag I added "Christmas Romance", then add another tag that I didn't choose "My TBR".    Each time I added a new tag, it would add it and another tag to the books.  It did let me delete the tags that I did not request.   Last night the same thing happened when I added more books to my BIR list.  Is anyone else having this problem?

The tags that are at the top of the description (in that box that has all the bibliographic info) are applied by the system, I think.  Example:  My Bookshelf, My TBR List, etc...  The ones that you & others have added ("Christmas Romance") are below the bibliographic info.

Is this the scenario you were talking about?

I'm seeing weird additions to my tags, too, Robin.

Many times lately, when I type in new tag information (using the link on my own bookshelf listing), then click on save, I'm immediately shown the tag I want plus one, two or three additional tags that I do not want. Things such as "On the Run: A Mafia Childhood" and "Eriks" and "NKOTB"  which have all popped up multiple times. Also things like "My Inventory" which I'm not interested in either.

I keep deleting the extras.

Yes Pam, that is what I'm talking about.  I got the "My Inventory" a couple of times and the one about the Mafia Childhood too.  Very strange.
