I've only been using the resources of mobilism (ebooks) for a week or two now, and it's a really FANTASTIC resource. It's already often saved me a lot of time and fiddling about scouring about for certain books I haven't otherwise been able to get hold of to (say) complete a collection, which are not available for sale to Australia, whatever. Many I've downloaded are things already in my vast "paper" library that I want to duplicate onto my ereader. Many others have been compulsive downloads for downloading's sake - it's like being a kid in a candy store!
However, new as I am to the site, I have one pretty big problem with it, and that's the broadness of the category "Fiction". I may very well be in the minority here in that I don't read romance, fantasy, horror and/or vampire stuff - I like mystery, crime and general fiction. I usually log in once or twice a day to see what has been posted because so much IS uploaded every day that I miss a fair bit if I don't keep up. Unfortunately, book titles alone are mostly not much of an indicator as to what a book is going to be about, so one has to click on the link to find out and, from my point of view, a very big percentage of the uploads are books I have no interest in. It can get quite tedious wading through dozens of links to find "treasures" to my liking. Especially with the much-discussed tyranny of slow connections that is apparently quite common for mobilism users.
I'd therefore like to respectfully suggest a modification to uploading rules that allows uploaders to categorize their uploads in the subject line of a post. I realize there are limited characters available, but abbreviations could be used if necessary. And dare I also suggest that the number of characters taken up by the type of download in the subject line at the moment are pretty much redundant, and this information would be better placed in the body of a post. If someone is interested in a book, they will click on the link and thereby find out what formats the upload is in, and mostly these are going to be epub or mobi - if the format the user wants is something more obscure they'd download the epub/mobi and convert it anyway, presumably. I'd love to see a topic line something along these lines:
Dark Heritage; Emma Darcy; ROMANCE
The Affair; Lee Child; MYSTERY
Dead as a Doornail; Charlaine Harris; VAMPIRE
War Horse; Michael Morpurgo; CHILDREN/YOUNG ADULT
Rachel's Holiday; Marian Keyes; GEN FIC/HUMOUR
If the subject line is as brief as this, you could easily be a little more detailed about the category, e.g. something could be categorized as VAMPIRE/HORROR or CRIME/ROMANCE - whatever.
Anyway, just a thought and FWIW ....
