This is going to be such a fabulous list.

Re: Reordering: There are arrows to the left of the numbers at the left side of the list. Also, you can reorder by just changing the numbers. Do NOT hit "enter" when you do that, though -- just touch your cursor to some other point on the screen, outside the list. If you hit "enter", you'll be tossed out of the "edit" screen and the list is saved "as is" at that moment.

I don't want to go through and manually alphabetize the whole thing - too much work. I'm probably just going to leave it in chunks.

Also, yes, it is shaping up to such an amazing list!

I decided to alphabetize by the first letter of the last name, so they are now in a vague sort of order. I refuse to do the full alphabetization, though, because that just sounds hard.

I think that this might be the crowning achievement of my reading life, tbh!
This list is freaking AMAZING! Thank you for coming up with the idea and putting this all together!

Awesome!!

I humbly assert that this is the crowning achievement of my time on BL. This is one of the - if not THE- coolest, most interesting, most intensely reader-focused book lists I've ever seen. I can't believe the breadth of and depth of what we've put together here.
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
I totally agree.
Linda Hilton
Has anyone else noticed how few romance novels are on this list? Lots of mystery. Lots of fantasy. damn few romances.
Abandoned by user
There are a few, but yes, not many.

Why don't you do a supplemental post with 20 additional really good ones and beef up the collection a bit?
Themis-Athena's Garden of Books
Totally seconded, and yes, the same thing (comparatively few romances) has occurred to me, too, while I've been editing the spreadsheet!
