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.
