I'd say it will stay like that until someone demonstrates it breaks something, or they fix the code themselves.
It looks like RL establishes the Marks (pins) when an RL is listed, which makes sense, because you can have multiple RLs. They're easily cleared with Mark books->Clear marked books.

Maybe the Marks (pins) could be cleared when the RL search. e.g. marked:reading_list_books2Edit, is 'dismissed'; can a plugin get a callback from the Clear current search event?

FD is different, it establishes the Marks (pins) for exempted books when a library is opened. And it uses the the "marked" column dynamically to create the duplicate book groups. When Kovid implemented Mark books as a User feature, I looked at FD to see if I could move the marking of exemptions from library open to some other event, but I discovered FD uses the "marked" column for various (nefarious ) purposes, so I gave it a miss.

I'm pretty sure there isn't a way to do this. And it is such a harmless side-affect, and the work around is simple enough that I don't see any point in doing anything about it.

Except that if anyone did the count and it wasn't updated, then they would think something was wrong and possibly redo the count before realising what had happened. And I fixed it when I was in that area of the code doing something else.

For the RL, not unmarking the books is a small visual problem that doesn't harm anything. And if there is a bug, it is that when moving away from the RL view, the marks aren't cleared, not that they aren't cleared when the books are removed from the list. If it really bugs you, I suggest that you do the fix yourself.

Hi all,

I've been using reading list for years now, and it addresses a really important functionality. For that, I'm very grateful. On the other hand, I've had a consistent problem with the plugin that seriously reduces its utility. That problem is that my default list keeps getting emptied out every so often. I'll have a number of books added to the default list that are persistent for months or more... and then, every now and again... poof! 0 books in my default reading list.

Am I the only one to encounter this issue? Any suggestions on how to debug?

thanks,
allie
