Please help us make Online Book Club even better! Please post suggestions, feedback and ideas for new features. Wild brainstorming and potentially 'crazy ideas' are super-strongly encouraged! :)

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.

With the new guideline of including the title and author's name in reviews, is it required to include the subtitle as well? It would be helpful to include this information in the guidelines.

Subtitles are not needed. The information about the author and the title needs to be in the body of the review, even if you include a subtitle.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.


Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.

I think this is a great point to make because others would wonder as well. Considering this information is NOT included in the guidelines as something you must include, that leaves it up to your discretion. Some subtitles are really long, and I can see why reviewers would opt not to include them.
