New Forums -- Public Libraries & Audiobooks

Any chance we can get two new forums - Public Libraries and Audiobooks?

Public Libraries could be a sub-forum in General Discussions.

Audiobooks could be a forum in E-Book Readers.

These are both major categories and discussions on each get scattered all over the board. Consolidation would greatly improve understanding, access, and use of these technologies by the members of MobileRead; especially new members.

Thanks

I agree other then with Audiobooks. I don't think they belong with eBooks. But I do think that Audiobooks could be a sub-forum of Public libraries.

There aren't that many threads, so subforums seems like overkill. A prefix would highlight the threads, is there any way we could get Audiobooks and Library prefixes to use?

I highly agree on having a sub forum for libraries.

I like the idea of having a prefix for audiobooks.

Can you search only by prefix? If so, second what Nyssa said.

Yes, we can search by prefix. It is in the advanced search options.

I came to this forum to suggest an audiobook forum myself. I think your ideas here are excellent. Admittedly, audiobooks don't seem like "real" books to some, but they are certainly mobile reading. I'm often reading an audiobook while I drive.
