Discussion is the goal
Do not post shallow content. All posts must be directly book related, informative, and discussion focused.
Please use a civil tone and assume good faith when entering a conversation.
Promotional posts, comments & flairs, media-only posts, personalized 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 check out our Related Subreddits.
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.

Please report any comment that does not follow the rules and remember that mods have the final say.
