OK, I've been prodded to start up another thread, so here goes!

This mission: Time time time!

Add a timeframe to the books that you know. You can use "Victorian" or "Elizabethan" or "WWII" or "1970's" or "Great Depression" or "Civil War" or "20th Century"... Anything that's useful and descriptive. If you're unsure, check the current tags for the book, and see if we can increase the number of times some of those are used.

Good luck, and have fun! :)

I think this is great! I personally love tags and find them so useful. I don't really read time travel books, so i wouldn't have a clue about books to tag, but i did tag "coming of age" books based on several other sites. just wanted to let you know i appreciate the work you're doing :0)

I do a lot of book/image editing.  I tag the books I edit so that I can check later to see if the edits have gone through.  (Then I remove my ugly tags.)  :-)  You've inspired me to often add another "helpful" tag or two at the same time.  Last night I was tagging some "manga" books, and added some "Native American," "Latter Day Saints," "African American Fiction" tags, among many others.  I just look for a tag that's already out there, and add to it, most of the time.

Thanks Jane for another cool mission.   Now I can do all three at the same time, plus add one or two of my own.

Trisha, go to the Help Center and search for tags, it will give you the pages to read up on them.
