Hi there what do others thinks about having a sticky for each forum recommending books that you've found useful?

 

Not sure if it would work or not but thought I'd throw the idea out.  cool

Let's trial it in one forum first. If it's a good idea than it will take off.

What forum should we do it in?

How about 'Women's problems'?. That's a pretty sticky wicket to try it on¦¦runawayrunaway

Your sense of humour gets more wicked by the day ep  whistle

 

How about "Self Sufficiency" or "Jams, Chutneys, Preserves" lots of books around on both subjects both good and bad.  How many of us have bought books that looked promising only to be disappointed by the content.

Something to do with small boys concealing the produce of nasal explorations ?  runaway

 

In my distant yoof grannies used to use them on cuts and grazes after kissing it better wasn't enough .

Answer from Wikipedia

 

Sticky threads

Many forums now have features allowing administrators to make a thread "sticky", meaning that the thread will remain at the top regardless of the time of the latest entry.

laugh  Maybe this explanation needs to become a 'sticky' ?  big_laugh
