So, finally, my daily digest appears to be partially behaving.  It's only showing me 100 per genre, and not 9999 or so. This is good.

However, the genre listing is only the top level.  I do not care about most of the Horror genre.  The only reason any horror was in my daily digest requests was because some idiot somewhere decided to put the erotica there.  Similarly, I didn't have the entire Entertainment genre in my digest.

Now I do.  This has added several hundred books to my daily digest.  It was already long enough I was considering cutting back a couple genres.

Is there any way to only see the genres I'm actually interested in? (And as a side hope, how to get it to just show me my DD and not have to click through all the genres, some of which have the same book listed in both so I have to look at it repeatedly? I like the option of limiting it to a genre, but let me see them all at once also!) 

The daily digest was one of the best parts of this site (after the WL), and the changes have made it significantly less usable & useful to me.

It's still showing the same for me -- just showing the 9999 books in the categories.  I agree the digest and daily wishlist were one of the best parts of PBS.

Same here--I mentioned this in the other thread about the Digest too. They must be doing some work on it or something. I tried re-entering the genres/sub-genres in my settings and re-saving, but when I click on that genre in the daily digest, I'm getting EVERYTHING...hundreds and thousands of books in some cases. No way I'm weeding through them all. I hope they fix it SOON!

I'm personally refusing to list anything until they get it fixed.    Unless it's on a WL no one is going to see it!
