Hmmm... sounds interesting! :lol:

For my own bookscase, besides the usual Tolkien and C.S. Lewis collection, we have so many books that there's waaaaaaay to many to list here. Honestly, book collecting is a hobby of mine and GZ's, practically...

I can say that numerous science and classical history books take up a lot of space.

Everything ranging from environmentalist literature to history to bird books to political/social commentary and other things. It's a mix.

I also have a lot of computer programming related books. The programming I do is more advanced than most of them, but a few are good for reference every now and then.

Not as much as you might think. ;) The title is a bit of a ploy to attract attention to the book. Which is not to say that the title doesn't fit the story, but it doesn't in the way most people would think when seeing the title for the first time.

Personally, my favourite book of the Sword Of Truth series is Faith Of The Fallen. =P

I don't know if I can account for all my books. They're all over the house; we don't have bookshelves. Seriously, you can walk into any room and books are on tables, in drawers, under beds... I do try to keep them off the floor, at least. :lol: I have a huge sci-fi/fantasy collection. I'm looking up at the top of my computer desk and I see:

The Wrinkle in Time quintet by Madeleine L'Engle
The Mysterious Benedict Society, Trenton Lee Stewart
Strunk and White's The Elements of Style, Pearson Longman
Waiting for Godot, Samuel Beckett
The Minority Report, Philip K. Dick
several Trinity Blood volumes, Sunao Yoshida, Kiyo Kyujyo, Thores Shibamoto
various Stephen King books, mostly from The Dark Tower series
the Hitchhiker's Guide series, Douglas Adams (I think they're all up there)
a couple Fullmetal Alchemist volumes, Hiromu Arakawa
The Missing Manual: Photoshop Elements 7, Barbara Brundage
and two coffee table books, one on Skyscrapers and one on American Lighthouses

My husband is the non-fiction reader; he has political interest stuff everywhere. He also likes military history and biographies. I have a lot of true crime and mystery/detective stuff, too. I'm currently reading through my Agatha Christie collection again, in order of publication (I do this every few years). On the side I'm also reading Watership Down. Haven't read that in ages.

Huma is my favorite book from the whole Dragonlance series. :) I haven't had a chance to read Land of the Minotaurs, though. That's the one about Kaz, right? I should look for it the next time I go to the local library.

I have many books on various subjects. I prefer biographies mostly, and have many of those on people in various fields of entertainment, politics, sports, etc., etc., etc. Too many to list.

Like CW, I also have several books on birds.

I have various books on cooking, collecting, and other hobbie subjects, etc.

I have all the "Little House" books by Laura Ingals Wilder.

I have books by Jean Auel, Eugenia Price, Johanna Lindsey, and others. Also several books on or about "Star Trek".

Too many more too list.
