Adventure fiction is a genre of fiction in which an adventure, an exciting undertaking involving risk and physical danger, forms the main storyline. Adventure novels and short stories were popular subjects for American pulp magazines, which dominated American popular fiction between the Progressive Era and the 1950s.

“ Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving. ”
“ Don't let the expectations and opinions of other people affect your decisions. It's your life, not theirs. Do what matters most to you; do what makes you feel alive and happy. Don't let the expectations and ideas of others limit who you are. If you let others tell you who you are, you are living their reality — not yours. There is more to life than pleasing people. There is much more to life than following others' prescribed path. There is so much more to life than what you experience right now. ...more ”

[close] Here we read a different book each month, a variety of genres, and discuss feelings and emotions readers feel during and when they have finished the book. There is nothing worse in my opinion when you need to share your happiness, shock, excitement or anger during a book but no one you know understands because they have not read the book your trying to offload your feelings about!

[close] Here is a place to read and discuss your favorite Adventure authors and the genre as a whole. Whether they be modern authors like James Rollins, Clive Cussler, or David Wood, or perhaps something more classic like Harold Lamb, H. Rider Haggard, or Edgar Rice Burroughs, this is the place for you. I hope to encourage a Book Club/Group Read of all sorts of books. I plan to run it through a poll where we would vote what books to read next, choose the top two to read, giving each a month's time. That way, after the first book is finished, we can vote for the next pair.
