You could use those four versions for his book, because they actually have pictures, or you could use the other ones ....

How much do you think I'd get if I reposted EC on here? xD

Carraka! You're here! Yay! I'm happy .
And Andrew, stop adding books so I can actually do some of the work Mr.! Sheesh, you're doing far too much work as it is.

We need some non-fantasy suggestions guys. Maybe some little known works or stuff that just doesn't fit into genre.

If you want non-Fantasy ones, I suggest Malorie Blackman's Noughts and Crosses trilogy. It's a romance/thriller sort of thing, but it's not like that teen crap romance, it's realistic.

Alright guys, I'm in charge of adding books to the story. I'd like to ask you all to do a favor from this point on (everything before this post is fine the way it is). If you could provide the following information:

Full author name.
Name of book.
Link to a high resolution image of the cover of the book (doesn't matter how large, just so long as it looks good. The higher the resolution the better it looks when I shrink it)
Genre or if it is part of a series the name of that series.

So, yeah, it'll make things go really fast for adding books if all that info is given straight out.

Thanks guys!

I'm not posting anything new until aSoIaF is added. However, two comments. In the profile section, it says that we've earned Icons. Can you change this to "Books Bought"?

Secondly, you may want to edit that you want that information into the first post of this thread. Most people won't be scrolling through all the other recommendations before adding their own, especially as this thread grows.

We can change it to books bought, but the reason it says icons is so guests don't mistakenly think members can earn real books from this site, or that they can simply list books they've bought in real-life. Plus, not everything in the store is a book.

Shaun, Car's other two points fall into your sphere.
