ABC - Authors, Books, and Chat or Comments about Books We Love; Books We Hate; Books We Write; Books We'd Like To Write; Books We Wish Others Would Write: A discussion about books of all kinds, concentrating on but not limited to our own libraries and including new, mainstream and non-mainstream, in- and out-of-print, rare, antique, signed and unsigned, fiction and non-fiction. Of special interest are published contributors, and those who wish to be.

All discussion of the creative and creation side of books is particularly valuable.

We appreciate everyone's courtesy.

Typical initial posts will be a description of the book's content or attributes, why we love or dislike it, what's special about it, and recommendations to read or forget it.

Follow-up posts could lead anywhere, but should be focused on the books and authors, the effects of the books on our lives, and so forth.

All polite discussion on books will be allowed.
