For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

@nazeem

Thank you for the suggestion

The difficulty with going more specific in the genres is that will lead to hundreds if not thousands of genres. There could be "Vampire Romance", "Futuristic Dystopian", "Realistic Sci-Fi", "Supernatural Historical Fiction". There's countless possibilities.

What I have planned instead is a hashtag system which will act as a subgenre categorization system which is customizable by the members who can choose how to tag books and which tags to invent and use.

I love this idea!
When people say you've changed, it just means that you have stopped living your life, their way.
