Hi, Roger, I agree that science fiction should have its own category as well as fantasy. Horror has its own category and I would, like you, like to see science fiction and fantasy in two categories rather than one. I know there are authors who have written both but I'd like to be able to weed out the fantasy from the Star Wars novels. I know that mystery and thrillers are lumped together. Do you think they should be separated? Say suspense and thrillers and mystery and detective fiction? Come to that, one can really go into details once one starts categorizing. I know there is a category called "Cooking, Food, and wine". I don't object to that, however I think there should be another category called "Diet and Nutrition" to separate it from the cookbooks. Also I'd like fiction that has recipes to be taken from the Cooking, Food, and Wine category and call it Food Fiction, i.e., books where the protagonist has something to do with food and if there are recipes, that can come under that area because the primary focus is the story and food may be part of it but not the whole of it.

As long as you are making those suggestions, though, let me rant about the most irritating thing about the categories for me. Science fiction and fantasy should be split. If you are going to lump genres together then at least you could lump something that have more to do with each other than science fiction and fantasy. _ _ _ "Everything must justify its existence before the judgment seat of Reason, or give up existence." - Friedrich Engels Follow me on Twitter: http://twitter.com/rogerbailey81 The Militant: http://www.themilitant.com Pathfinder Press: http://www.pathfinderpress.com Granma International: http://www.granma.cu/ingles/index.html ----- Original Message ----- From: "Gary Petraccaro" <garyp130@xxxxxxxxxxx> To: <bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Friday, January 28, 2011 9:14 AM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: Questions that have surely been answered Maybe they could also come up with checkboxes for politics, sociology, and economics. ----- Original Message ----- From: Jamie Yates, CPhT To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Thursday, January 27, 2011 7:44 PM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: Questions that have surely been answered Maybe when engineering gets around to adding the checkbox for pictures are described they could add a checkbox for "this book is held for" a person and then that would trigger it to be on a separate checkout list? Then all of the held for books including the ones used to train new volunteers would not show up on the ready for checkout list? -- Jamie in Michigan Currently Reading: If I Should Die Before I Wake by Han Nolan Earn cash for answering trivia questions every 3 hours: http://instantcashsweepstakes.com/invitations/ref_link/49497 See everything I've read this year at: www.michiganrxtech.com/books.html To unsubscribe from this list send a blank Email to bksvol-discuss-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx put the word 'unsubscribe' by itself in the subject line.
