<MISSION>

To answer any and all questions you may have about CHESS BOOKS.

The answers will be provided by the people who visit here. We welcome book reviews, book links, and conversation about your favorite books.

<Book Lists and Book Links>

1.<Chess Literature Forum> hosted by <Paris Attack> parisattack chessforum

<POST YOUR BOOK QUESTIONS>

The main day to day forum function here will be to offer a space for people to post specific questions about chess books= and to provide a space for the many experts at <CG.com> to answer those questions.

If you are particularly interested and knowledgeable about a specific <chess book topic> we will be happy to post a link to your <Profile/forum>.

Here are some <real chess book questions> from recent <CG.com> posts- these are exactly the kind of question we wish to provide answers for. The answers, of course, will come from other <CG.com> members who happen to know about these topics.

<Has <<<anyone>>> has anyone read "My Best Games of Chess" by Vishy Anand? Is it good? Are there nice stories about his life or early career?>

<Can <<<anyone>>> recommend a book how to deal with Caro-Kann??>

<Can <<<anyone>>> recommend a good book on the Semi Slav??>

<Has <<<anyone>>> here had the chance to read the new edition of fischer's book? i've always wanted to read it, but i hear very scary stories about editorial modifications?>

<Can <<<anyone>>> recommend a book on the KID for an 1800ish player with some knowledge of the ideas in the KID but not a lot of knowledge regarding specific lines??>

All of these questions were posted recently somewhere at <Chessgames.com>. The problem is that some were posted at game forums, some at the <Kibitzer's Cafe>, some at <player forums>, and so on. That means that the answers are scattered all over the place. With your help, we can make it easier for everyone to gain easy access to the wealth of information about <CHESS BOOKS> that exists at this site.

####################################
