Hi, Merrill.

I think this would be an excellent idea.  As someone who mostly enjoys
reading fiction, it would be nice to tell at a glance if a title is fiction
or Non Fiction.

I'm not sure if this is still the case, but I know that talking books from
NLS have either an "NF" for Non fiction or an "F" for fiction on the outside
of the plastic mailing containers.  It seems like this would be an easy
addition to the category list.  also, it might be something to think about
as a possible inclusion into the search engine on the web site.  I think it
could be helpful for some if choices could be divided this way when looking
for books to download for reading or for validation.  Hope that made since.

Just my $0.02 here.

I would like to suggest a category. Books that are about current events,
public affairs or government--these sort of run together at times--are
classified as simply nonfiction or history. Something that happened a short
time ago is history, but I don't think of yesterday's news headlines that
way. I'm wondering if a new category could be added.

Secondly, the categories are in no particular order and I have noticed that
books which are fiction may also have, for example,  a history designation
because they are set in the past. I think of history as nonfiction. I was
wondering if the categories could be classified under nonfiction and fiction
categories. For example, mysteries, science fiction, romance and such would
be under literature and fiction while animals, sports, travel, textbooks and
such would be under nonfiction.
