I was thinking the other day, as splendid as this forum is it, could we make it better by trying to organise our thoughts into more of a "knowledge base". We are sum of out experiences and knowledge, can we collect that knowlege into a single place. In some ways we already do this - the Lens Lust forum is a great place to look up that lens you are interested in, members post shots and give opinion on each lens. Its certainly helped me decide my direction in lens purchases. Likewise the Gear forums around Nikon DSLR's and other gear is a great place to read up on a considered purchase. But there's nothing for books ! Now I don't buy many books, in most cases I like to get out there and try it for myself. But I'm looking to purchase a book on Lanscape photography, one more to do with technique and less on equipment, more on inspiration and less on repetition. Now i could just throw out a thread entitled "Help me choose a Landscape Book". I'd get some great responses, but over the course of time - 2 days, the thread would move off the front page and a few weeks later some-one else would ask the same question. So, why not have a book forum under the Gear thread. Each post in the forum could be a book title (include the ISBN) and should be a generated as a vote thread rather than general discussion and should give a mini review of the book. By giving it a vote option (positive, negative), people who have the book can vote on it, and comment on it. That way we build up a library of book resource. Searching by ISBN would be easy, and once you've found the thread its easy to see the overall opinion of a book by checking the vote count. That could be extended across all items - lenses, bags, tripods. etc.. Just an idea, feel free to dump on it. In the meantime - any ideas for a good landscape book ?
