These are just the ones where I've read multiple works by the same author. Most of my collection is comprised of random works by different authors.
Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.
- Edmund Burke
Right now, it's kind of pared down because some of it is in storage.
- Epidemiology, Pathology, etc.
About a dozen books on historical epidemiology, especially in urban contexts. Some books on modern epidemiology/global healthcare by Laurie Garrett, Peter Jahrling and the like. Of course, the epidemiological novels by Richard Preston. Some pop forensics and medical oddity books like "Dead Men Do Tell Tales", etc.
- Arachnology, Entomology and other bio
All from when I was a kid. Tons of picture books, a few copies of the Audobon field guide to insects and spiders - with the pictures cut out so I could rearrange them in a way that made sense to me. One giant book about human parasites, though I guess that would fall under the above category.
- Lots of women's history books, including a near encyclopedic series on the history of women in Western culture (6 books). Emphasis on primary sources and comparative studies, "Women and Writing in Medieval Europe", "Fallenness in Victorian Women's Writing", etc.
- Social history: Just a ton. I'm currently reading Hitler's Beneficiaries. What little I've been able to find about material culture and domestic life in Victorian Britain and the US, but most of it is either too dry (all description: not enough social analysis) or not all in one place.
- Antiques, Crafts, Fashion and Fine Arts: Everything from guides to buying porcelain (been collecting since I was wee ) to a pictoral history of Fabergé to republished Worth fashion catalogues. Some books about my favorite artists and artistic movements. I'm currently rereading a biography of Ingres.
- Some books about 1970s and 1980s music, four of them on The Clash and Joe Strummer. Will be reading "Rip it Up and Start Again: Post Punk 1978-1984", my self Christmas gift.
- Several books left over from classes that I just haven't wanted to sell.
- Hardly any fiction, but I've held on to most of my fiction books in case I develop a greater appreciation for literature in the future. It could happen...
These are my actual reading books. Other books that I have are reference books, picture books, and books about animals. They weren't really worth posting, but since you want to know what books I have there you go. There are more I'm sure, but I couldn't really find them. These are the ones I have lying around to read.
