What coding should I use for "haven't read it, but have seen the anime adaptation, the dub version"? (I.e.: Full Metal Alchemist.)

It may seem obvious, but I remember at least one major row sparked by a writer recommending a book that they had not actually read.

I don't think it means the reviewer. But as it happens, this week's (re-run) little book club on BBC Radio 4, "A Good Read" - not to be confused with the actual "Book Club" show - had one guest choose a book by Dave Eggers that they hadn't read yet but planned to, believing it to be a good bet to share.

*snicker* Do I have to invent my own coding for "wrote it"? (Always lovely to see my work included in lists!)

Do those even work anymore? I thought they were deprecated a few years ago.

More than a few...

It wouldn't surprise me to find that some browsers still support blinking, though.

Wow, I think this the first time I've seen Stinz listed on a SFF rec list. I mean, it's absolutely an alternate history/universe based on WW1, but people just don't seem to know about it.

Not planning on meming it, but my 14 y.o. and I read through the original list last night, finding things for them to read (already on the shelves) and things to add to the book wish list :)

I noticed a book by a man on the list; I assume that was included by accident.

I would complain about the lack of representation of straight white men, the most oppressed group in the world, but I couldn't keep a straight face while doing so.

There's actually two, at least, because Yoon Ha Lee is male. I have no idea about any of the Japanese names.

Oh, I caught that one but missed Raphael Carter. Well, now we know James isn't biased in any way!

Hitoshi Ashinano is male. Fumi Yoshinaga and Noriko Ogiwara are female; Hiromu Arakawa is a woman writing under a less-gendered pen name. (Arakawa's actual given name is 弘美 / Hiromi; her pen name drops the telltale 美 which rarely occurs in male names. Yes, reducing it to 弘 does not drop any syllables. Don't ask kanji to make sense.)

Btw, I found Willey has her backlist on Kindle, Well-Favored Man included. In case that matters.

I'm going to do it, but with a modification: boldface for "read it", italic for "on my TBR already". (I won't need strikethrough. Not even for "Dhalgren", though I won't pretend my attention didn't wander.)

It's a neat thing when you and your work becomes a good meme.

I remember stealing several of these off of my father's bookshelves.

Several others are on mine (or on my e-reader).
