Would adding a library section to deal with all the media reviews be advantageous? It puts it all in one place, have a section for books, DVD or online media.

If others see value in that I can add it. So let's hear from the group on your thoughts. It would sort of like the WWII film section.

I think it would be a welcome addition. We can share the links we have all saved to appropriate librarys and verified resources of information.

The WWII film section could be a directory in the library itself.

A library sounds good to me. Members could put a small description of their top 3 books for reference or whatever they want to recommend.

I'd like to echo this statement, but kick it up a notch and say books are really cool, and this idea is really cool!

I think a library section would be great. I myself am a bit old school and still like to read the printed word. Also I would like to add here a site that a buddy of mine told me about. www.abbe.com. I use it as a source for not only finding books but to evaluate the ones I have. The site will tell you the value of the book based on condition, edition (when printed).etc. Great for finding out what a possible rare book is worth. But yea a library section would be great.
