Key Point. Amazing the number of Jane Austin fans that I have met that don't see the satire. To me that is one of the best parts of her writing...Taking the piss out of society....among other things

Yes. Romance is a genre predominantly aimed at female readers. Not exclusively, though; I'm a big "Jane Austen" fan myself. But her books are an awful lot more than "romance".

Before the advent and general acceptance of YA, Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys and the like were in the Juvenile section of my library. We had a Juvenile section and we had an Adult section. That's it. Until 13/14, you were stuck with a juvenile library card (unless you got explicit permission from a parent). The age of the protagonist wasn't really a factor (except incidentally) in which section of the library a book was shelved. It was based on content, language and reading level (who decided, I have no clue).

When do people think YA had its advent as a category? I know I was browsing/borrowing in the YA section of the public library in the early 1980s (possibly late 1970s). But I see a lot of people speaking as though it's something that was invented by marketers around the turn of the century or something.

I graduated from High School in the mid-eighties and YA certainly never appeared anywhere in my public library's card catalog. If it was around before that, it wasn't universally accepted/utilized... regardless of when the term might have been coined. Because I lived in libraries/bookstores during the '70s, '80s and most of the '90s.

I haunted the libraries from 1979 and there was always a YA section. Adjacent to the romance sectio as it happens. That's where I discovered my predilection for racy historical sagas (they were in both sections!) Luckily my mom signed that I could check out anything.

I think it is referring to 18 and above age.
When you are already 18 I think it opens up all the privileges in life.
especially "LOVE"

The last time an American soldier was drafted was in 1972. I doubt it's high on the minds of young people these days.

Not to get political but it kinda should be. There's a few ''mandatory national service'' bills floating around in D.C.

not to go on too much of a digression, but it's well-known that the military doesn't want a draft (weird old Charlie Rangel notwithstanding). They don't need a huge supply of warm bodies; they want professional soldiers who can fight high-tech wars.

Suddenly, I'm hearing that sound that's used when adults are speaking in the Peanuts cartoons.
