It was introduced as a attempt to gain uniform data, which in itself sounds desirable, right?
If it was correct uniform data, I would not be frustrated and complaining. But when it tells me I've registered an e-book, when I have a physical book in my hand and have never registered an e-book in my life, I really want to throw the book at someone. And when it changes a children's board book to non-fiction, etc.
And I now am apparently 3 books short of 14 (yes fourteen) pages of women's fiction, whatever the hell that is, a category that I have never, not once, not ever, used on purpose, and a category that I change every time it comes up when I register a book.
I change it to the category that is accurate, in my estimation, on my book, and yes, usually that sticks, but not always. Just this week, I have found it on new books that I have registered, after I had changed it to something else and saved.
Sorry, is my frustration showing?
