No New Posts Action
This forum contains books which has the action of the characters as the main focus. The books are often part of another genre such as mystery or historical fiction, but the "doings" of the main charcters are the focus. (Examples are Tom Clancy's The Hunt for Red October and Alistair MacClean's The Guns of Navarrone.)

No New Posts Romance
This genre contains books which focus on "love stories" and/or epic travels which involve great love and great risk, and great achievements or disappointments. These are usually fiction--if a book deals with real people, then place it in the non-fiction forum. (Examples would be Nicholas Spark's The Notebook and Thomas Mann's Death in Venice.)

No New Posts Realistic "Life" Fiction
In this forum, books that are fiction but based on "real life" experiences (as opposed to fantasy) may be listed. Some of them may also qualify for other forums--so feel free to list them twice. This forum is likely to be "heavy" in books that deal with life crises and psychological scenarios. Examples would be I Never Promised You a Rose Garden and Flowers for Algernon.

No New Posts School Literary Assignments
Many of us get "assigned readings" by educators in real life. This forum is the place to ask questions of other members about those readings! Since other members will probably have read the work you are assigned, you might pick up some insights, facts, etc., which will help you grasp the author's themes and messages. You could just "vent," too, but keep it respectable!
