- Classics-by-age and Classics-by-popularity, or other split of the Classics category
- War/Military (fiction and non)
- Free ebooks (guaranteeing that everyone has access that month)
- Historical Fiction
- Literary Fiction (we'd have to define it...)
[...] Categories that haven't been suggested, even in passing, include Sports, Religion, Erotica, Travel, Poetry, Anthologies, GLBT, and Cooking.

Thank you. I couldn't think of any additional categories. Some of these would be somewhat redundant, or at least overlap. (We have award-winners as nominees every month; most young adult fiction is also some other category, like sci-fi or fantasy; another mobileread book club is already devoted to literary fiction...)
Truth is, I'm indifferent. I'll abstain and be happy with whatever the majority decides.
