    I have multiple reading lists. Naturally, I have the regular ones ("Reading", "Completed", and "Want to Read") that I think most other people have. I also have one for novels I translate, which is made public for record-keeping and advertising purposes :blobcheeky:

    However, I also have a list for my dropped novels. Novels I hate, novels I dropped out of boredom, etc. They aren't even all bad novels either, some are just good novels that were completely different from my expectations.

    So, if I ever want to pick the novel up again, it'll be there for me. :blobsmilehappyeyes:

    I used to think that most people had a "Dropped" list like me, because it's also great for filtering out novels you've already read and don't want to try again, you know? :blobsalt:

    But then I read a bunch of "I'm Looking For" threads and figured that might not be true.

    So I've come to ask- do you guys keep a list for all your dropped novels or no? :blobhug:

    Omg, my dropped list icon is a shovel too :blobrofl::blobrofl::blobrofl:

    A block list? What's the difference between that and the dropped list? :blob_tilt:

    I’m too unorganized for a dropped list. It would never actually get used. Even if I did use it I would probably end up leaving a few dropped novels in my normal reading list accidentally.

    Yes, so that I can filter them in search results.
    I also have a 'blocked' list for novels that I wish to exclude from search results but have not read.

    One reading list. I just wait until it has at least 100 chapters before binge reading. Slow updates? I wait

    Yes, I have one. It helps prevent me from rereading stories I dropped for whatever reason.

    the trashed area with said icon ... though I also have a dropped one for when something I liked gets dropped by the translator (though once it gets picked up and goes through multiple hands on multiple sites it may very well go to the trash ...)

    I keep them for two main reasons. One, I like them so I reread them all the time. Second, just on the off chance they may start writing again or someone picks them up again

    Nope just two lists. One for stories I didn't hate and another for stories I don't want to see again or aren't interested in.

    Came from Goodreads so I’m used to having a dropped list for books I hate enough to not finish so I dont need to rate them.

    But then again I like to read random novels whenever bored with no intention of continuing and never bothered putting them on dropped unless I really hate it lol

    Eh, nope. I just put it on "on-hold", for things that might seems interesting but i i so have any energy left to wait/continue it for now but the most interesting ones are still on my reading list
