    I have a lot of books about religion, mostly accumulated in my late teens and early twenties. I picked up a decent amount of philosophy books I never read during that time in my life as well. I have poetry and plays that I still add to once in a while. A healthy heaping of fantasy novels. Some sci-fi. Art books from my teens. Jazz biographies. Six or seven serious novels. Don't get me started on the comic collection. A smattering of baseball books and travelogues. Too many cookbooks. I prefer a kindle these days. Sick of having cumbersome to read big-ass hardcovers hanging around.

    Most of my books are fantasy, urban fantasy and crime fiction. I like mysterious books. So there's J. K. Rowling, Lisa J. Smith, Cornelia Funke, Krystyna Kuhn, Philip Pullman, Elisa Rosso. I often go to the library, so these are only a few examples of what I read. Last book I read is The firm by John Grisham. I also have a book about the meaning of names.

All of which are crammed in various out-of-the-way spaces.

    I also never give away or throw away a book. It's like...blasphemy to me.

    I have a large shelf of natural history/ecology books, texts and field guides, mostly ornithological, and a bunch of Carl Sagan books.

    In terms of fiction, I lean towards fantasy... The Lord of the Rings, The Dark Tower, Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel series, A Song of Ice and Fire.

    Then I have a small shelf of manga, mostly FMA.

    I read alot of both fiction and nonfiction but my book collection is mostly nonfiction as I rarely re-read novels and usually donate them when I'm done. The nonfiction I like holding onto for reference. I do have a few of the classic novels on my shelf and the Harry Potter books. For nonfiction, I have alot of psychology and science related books, stuff on the MBTI and enneagram, a couple of cookbooks, a couple of computer how to books, an atlas, the World Almanac, some humor books.

    I have a lot of historical fiction/fantasy (mostly Arthurian legend), and a lot of Harry Potter-type stuff. What else.... poetry, Irish lit, Russian lit, French lit (in French), and a lot of reeealy random stuff.

    I also keep a list of all the books I read, and rate them. What does that say about my type?
