    Thanks much to Matt for adding new book (media) forum for us!!! ;D

    Great place to add reviews, personal book inventories, wanna have's and notices of good book buys...for those that watch for such on Ebay etc.

    If you are searching for a good reference book, or looking to buy...this might be the right place to query...or just to find out what a particular author has to say on a given subject.

    (Maybe even buy, sell, trade, or "loan" 8) )

    May not be possible to get ahold of every book you want, but maybe you can find out what a particular reference states here...

    Please note: for copyright purposes, whenever posting direct "quotes" from any media, it is best to always give full credit to the author/publisher (and protect self, & forum management) by including line:

    Enjoy,

    Johns Tullock's book "Natural Reef Aquariums:  Simplified Approaches to Creating Living Saltwater Microcosims"  is an absolute must.

    What format should one follow to post their library? Maybe a few posting protocals should be in place Scott. BTW, I like the copyright warning, good show!

    @Gresham...right...need format...would be nice if we could post a "template" up in "sticky's" so would be consistent for all...

    Don't want to "lose" great reviews like Craig just posted because it is buried in another thead...need a single "thread" with just "Book" reviews, may another for DVD reviews, etc...

    My thought is a "standard" user "Bookshelf template" - & each user maintains a single thread which he manages himself and updates/changes & with any info on "wants" or willingness to "loan" (for example, I personally would have no problem sending a DVD I had to any forum user with say 200 posts, if they paid the shipping) - or if somebody needed something I had for a special research project)... :-/

    Forum Master Matt may be able to give some insight...

    Matt? - thoughts?

    Or something along those lines? Something that can cover all formats, DVD, magazine, paperback, hard cover, video and VCD.

    Things going a bit slowwww...over here at the "Book"/"Media" forum...

    Have any you would like to let others know about, share or even "trade"...

    Lots of books out there on Reef Keeping, critters, etc...some great, some not so...

    Let us know...

    Would be nice to know who has what, to ask questions about or get reference if needed...

    Esp. cool for those who have copies they would be willing to "loan" for short periods...

    "Coral Dreaming" is here and waiting for whoever wants to see it... 8)
