I am looking for books where magic is commonplace (kind of like the Darkblade trilogy).

I know other Stack Exchange sites don't allow questions like that, but some have more relaxed rules than others.

If I ask my book recommendation question here, am I off topic?

Not on the main site

One of the reasons to close a question specifically says:

Requests for lists of works or recommendations are off-topic as they do not fit our questions and answers format. Feel free to ask about people's favorites in chat.

However, as indicated in that close reason, you can ask for recommendations in chat.


Nope, they're not allowed. Straight from our list of off-topic questions:

Reading or viewing recommendations: I liked X, what should I watch next?

But, you can always visit our one of our chat rooms for questions like these!

Mos Eisley, or general chat

The Nexus, a fantasy-topic room chock-full of recommendations

SFF On-topic chat, where discussion is just about Sci-fi and Fantasy, not the real world!
