Dear Goodreads

I read books in French.

You like to suggest other books I might like to read.

However, it is not helpful when the books you suggest are in German.

To the best of my knowledge, a French speaker does not a German reader make.

While I find it flattering you think that if I can read one "foreign" language I can read them all, 'tis not the case.

Please work on your algorithm.  S'il vous plaît, travaillez votre algorithme. Bitte an Ihrem Algorithmus arbeiten.
