I think I'm finished tweaking the wiki (for now). I added the recent recommendations,
made sure everyone has a picture (I think it makes it easier to read, and I totally
judge books by their covers), and broke out the list into

- Contemporary Literature,
- Classical Literature,
- Books for Kids and Tweens
- Bandes Dessinées
- Films, Podcasts, Audio (I haven't tweaked this section; maybe one day)

These aren't perfect categories, but it gives the list some form.

It's still easy to add stuff.

There's a jump now at the top so you can navigate right to the section you want.

There's still a lot of rooms for comments if people have any. A lot of boxes are still
blank.

I also changed the final column to "thumbs up." Mostly because this fit the size of
the box better.

That looks nice. I think we can use the existing format for tv series though, to avoid duplication. There hasn't been a similar list for the rest so far, so this is totally awesome.

This is great! I'll look over my Goodreads lists from back when I was reading a lot and
come up with some stuff. For books can we add a nonfiction section? I also have a bunch
of podcasts I can add - maybe start a separate section from films for them?

That sounds good, I added a "Non Fiction" and broke up the last section into "Films and
Television" and "Podcasts and Audio"

I also learned how to make columns sortable by year for films, and made the literature
ones collapsible.   I know there's a way to make a table both sortable and collapsible,
but I can't figure out the code yet for it (it's not standard wikitext code).

I should probably warn Italy and Spain that I'm eyeing their sites next. I'll check in
with the larger group first.

It's easy to add more rows (just right click where you want it, and select 'insert
row.'). For photos make sure that you set the size for 150 px; I haven't figured out
how to lock the column size yet.

This is a terrific idea! I'm having difficulty figuring out how to add books, so will just give some suggestions here:

I second:
René Barjavel. La Nuit des temps

Here's some others I've enjoyed
Henri Troyat. Les semailles et les moissions
Henri Troyat - Tant que la terre durera (really anything by Henri Troyat - I read many of his novels when I was at A2
level, and it really motivated me to read more; great stories.)
René Barjavel - Le grand secret
Françoise      Chandernagor - L'Allée du roi     
Michel Déon - Un souvenir (beautiful story of a man reminiscing about a long ago love)     
Irène     Némirovsky - Suite Française
Marcel Pagnol - Manon des sources

Thanks for adding these for me...
