    I think they should have a science fiction section. I’ve read most of the fiction books on this list they need to find more

    For scary they should add some of Stephen King’s books. He’s a great author, and I practically only read his book’s now.

    How dare they insult Diary of a Wimpy Kid by calling it a graphic novel! A graphic novel is just a big comic book! DWK does have pictures similar to a comic book but it is a true novel!

      The Guaradians of Gahoole series is awesome!!! Percy Jackson is too. Then the Underland Cronicles are way cool too.
