NA vs YA?

Okay, I am a bit confused here... what is the difference between "New Adult" and "Young Adult" genres?

Maybe NA also includes those older people that have finally been beaten down by the system and decided to behave more maturely? ... And maybe kids that you hear described as: "she was born 50".

(In other words: No idea. Where are you seeing "NA"? You sure they don't mean "not applicable"?)

Well... in my post I list "New Adult" and "Young Adult" so I thought the connection to NA and YA would be obvious... sorry.

Looks like it's just people in their early 20s dealing with early-20s stuff. Like how YA is basically 15-19 year olds, maybe a little older or a little younger.

I wonder if this ever more specific age categorisation is the result of having so much being published online? I mean, it's not as though there are actually more readers now ... are there? Or maybe it's so that all those that were YA, but have gotten older, will know what they should be reading now? I'm waiting for PA (Proper Adult - we can't pretend any longer), MA (Middle Aged - don't call me old) and AA (Aging Adult - well over the hill, and loving it) categories .

Having them selves on, it seems to me. As far as I can tell people will read what they like, whatever age group is given by a publisher. Young kids have long read stuff that was theoretically too old for them, and enjoyed it and learned lots along the way. And there are many older readers that love kids and YA fiction for the simple escapism with minimal effort they offer.

Why didn't I think of that!

Judging by your avatar, you are just getting to old to think of new things!
