Literary fiction is a term that has come into common usage in the early 1960s. The term is principally used to distinguish "serious fiction" which is a work that claims to hold literary merit, in comparison from genre fiction and popular fiction. The name literature is sometimes used for this genre, although it can also refer to a broader category of writing.

[close] Welcome to the Busy Bee's Literature Club! This is a group set up by two very close, busy and bookish friends. Diana is a secondary English teacher and Emma is studying part-time for her MRes in English. We have decided to set up an online reading group with a difference: The Busy Bee's Literature Club is an online reading group aimed towards people who are unable to access the spare time required to join their local book clubs, which often rotate their books on a monthly basis. We want to encourage readers of any background to take time for themselves, to enjoy and devour books without the pressures of time constraints. We will shortly devise a reading list for the remainder of 2019. Books will be changing on a 2-3 month basis!
