The Profile Information is too limiting. "Primary Role" Yes, I'm an author (is that different from a writer?), but I'm also an avid reader. For "Favorite Literature Type" I put fiction, but I read a great deal of non-fiction as well (e.g. history). "Favorite Genre or Category", I put thriller, but I read all kinds of fiction, in both English and Spanish. The category "Favorite Book" is laughably restrictive, as is "Favorite Author". It is totally impossible to limit yourself to any one book or any one author. Do you agree? By the way, I don't understand the business of gifts. What is the idea behind it?
Hi Clark! Great to have you here and a warm welcome to Authors.com. :)
There's a Suggestions and Feedback thread on the forum. You could add your comment about the Profile Information there and the admin will see it. I agree with you it would be nice to be able to select multiple options as I read a lot too. :)
