-Young Adult - I've always liked YA, it would be a fun, easy category, and it's a very distinct category that would fit in well.
-Adventure - As in, travelling, exploring, etc. It could include books from say, Crocodile on the Sandbank, to The Princess Bride, to Indiana Jones type stories, to spy thrillers such as James Bond, to westerns, to even The Odyssey. I think it could be a great category.
I like all of these suggestions. But I also don't mind the award winners category either.
I'm personally not so fussed with a non-fiction category, but I can always skip that month if people want to have it. I don't participate every month anyway.
After all that though, I don't care if we keep the two classics months. I must just be a particularly affable chap today.
