    I thought there were more genres than listed in the wikipedia. I'll have to think about it. I didn't see chic romance novels on that list.

    I nominate Horror.

In your rocking chair, by your window dreaming, shall you long, alone. In your rocking chair, by your window, shall you dream such happiness as you may never feel."

    Virgil, I hope you didn't cry when you didn't see chic romance on the wiki list.

    Truly a shame

    Erotic lit made the list. How have I managed to miss this for so long?

    I can't really decide. I was gonna go for political fiction, but that's just too common, and we read it a lot here. I'm not really a big fan of fantasy books, but I guess I was bound to read one of them at some point. So it's probably fantasy for me too

    I would like to nominate young adult. There are some really good ones and I think we could get some of the younger set to take part.
