NOTE ABOUT SUGGESTIONS

Please - DO NOT suggest any book which you or someone else has recently written. This site is for Great Books and classics, and there is simply no way that a new book can be considered a classic, let alone a Great Book.

Some of you might be wondering why I felt the need to state the patently obvious. Well, apparently this is NOT obvious to far too many people. I have had dozens of people ask me to add their brand-new book to my site, and the most recent one could not understand why I wouldn't just read his book and judge for myself whether it was "Great", even after I tried - twice - to explain why it doesn't work that way.

Up until now I have not had any explicit, "set in stone" rules for suggestions, but after this last incident I'm formalizing two of my rules-of-thumb. I will not even consider any suggestions where:

  1. The work was written or first published within the last ten years; or
  2. The person suggesting the work is also its author.

All suggestions which fall under one or both of these categories will be deleted without reply. Note that this DOES NOT apply to new translations or editions of older works, only to newly-authored works.
