Help!!!!

Does anyone know if I delete a shelf, if that is enough to delete all the books on said shelf?

 

I am starting from scratch as far as my "never evah" list goes. I want to delete all the different shelves be it TSLT author, no, no, thank you, etc. And then have them all on one exclusive shelf. 

 

I also still have to figure out if an exclusive shelf like "never, evah" can be constructed so that it does not add to my "read" count. I was kind of horrified seeing that certain authors, who shall remain unnamed were on my "read" shelf.

 

Thanks, Angela
