This is a moderated subreddit. It is our intent and purpose to foster and encourage in-depth discussion about all things related to books, authors, genres or publishing in a safe, supportive environment. If you're looking for help with a personal book recommendation, consult our Suggested Reading page or ask in: /r/suggestmeabook

Quick Rules:

  1. Discussion is the goal
    Do not post shallow content. All posts must be directly book related, informative, and discussion focused.

  2. Personal conduct
    Please use a civil tone and assume good faith when entering a conversation.

  3. Prohibited
    Promotional posts, comments & flairs, media-only posts, personal recommendation requests incl. ‘Should I read …?’, ‘What’s that book?’ posts, sales links, piracy, plagiarism, low quality book lists, unmarked spoilers (instructions for spoiler tags are in the sidebar), sensationalist headlines, novelty accounts, low effort content. Please see extended rules for appropriate alternative subreddits, like /r/suggestmeabook, /r/whatsthatbook, etc. or use the Related Subreddits buttons in the sidebar.

  4. Encouraged
    We love original content and self-posts! Thoughts, discussion questions, epiphanies and interesting links about authors and their work. We also encourage discussion about developments in the book world and we have a flair system.

  5. Important
    We don't allow personal recommendation posts. You can ask in our Weekly Recommendation Thread, consult our Suggested Reading or What to Read page, or post in /r/suggestmeabook.
