Bookshelf Catalogue

I've often thought it would be fun to do a little catalogue of my books. I never quite got to it, so I thought I'd try now. This is in no way complete.

I don't have what you'd call a large library, but it's big enough to require some cataloguing. At any rate, this is probably Part 1. I have a few bookcases, and I'm not entirely sure what's on each one. Since I loaded up my newest bookcase yesterday, I'll start with that.

Disclaimer: just because I have a book on my bookcase, I am not implying that you should have the same book. In no way is my having a particular book to be construed as my approval of that book. I have some books that I was given as a gift, some that are questionable, some I bought years ago, and some I bought specifically because they are bad: I keep them as an example of wrong thinking. Please don't take this as a recommended reading list.

Looks like I got some reading to do!

Nah... my Georgette Heyer, David Eddings, etc. are on another bookcase. Hopefully I'll get those catalogued soon too.

Shan said...

Actually I would like to take a look at "The Coming Prince" and "The Scroll of Time".

Where are you, bro? We're going on for 5 days with no posting. One would think you had an actual life, full of actual responsibilities. Harumph.

Do you have any books from Everyday Publications?

It looks like my shelves are devoid of volumes by Everyday Publishers. Nothing immediately came to mind, so I actually looked through their (your?) online catalogue to check.

Are there any titles you'd recommend?
