Books: Literary Genre Directory

This is a directory filled with lists of books by genre. Every popular genre of book is listed here along with a list of books in that genre. These lists of book by genre include photos or book covers and additional information when available. Literary genres in fiction and novels are covered in full, but there are also nonfiction and reference book lists. These different categories of books should be navigated alphabetically by genre. All lists on these pages of book by genre lists can be sorted by any column. You can use these factual lists to rank your favorite books of a given type and make a Top 10 list (or Top 100, etc - the system is openended). It's easy to get started making a book list with just a single click. Opinion – based lists (both by individual users and groups) can be found everywhere else on Ranker.
