The fiction category is so broad. I'd like a Historical Fiction sub category. Anyone else?

There is a historical fiction category - Click on Literature and fiction, then Genre fiction, and then you can choose historical fiction.

I think you'd have to choose Genre Fiction, as mentioned above, since the Daily Digest settings only go down to subgenre, and wade through westerns and other genres.

You could also do a saved search for historical fiction.  Wow--I just tried searching on that as a keyword and got 8442 results.  So um maybe you'd need to do an Advanced Search to bring the numbers down and make the results more relevant.

Thanks :-) I've got so many books on my TBR I don't know why I'm even thinking about how to find other books. I haven't had a problem to date :-)
