    I'm the same. Most of what I read is non-fiction. I'm trying to create a shelfari page from memory, b/c a lot of my books aren't with me right now.

    I've always liked information and learning more than stories. It's funny, my favourites are probably the reference books. Dictionary, book of mathematical functions, atlases, etc. I get excited that there's a book that goes into insane detail about every chemical element. I'm a nerd . My least liked are crappy novels. I enjoy classics occasionally like Great Gatsby, Great Expectations, etc. but I find it really hard to read random best sellers.

    Cool! I look forward to seeing it. I did my Shelfari by memory too and was rather pleased to find that I left only a few out.

    I can't remember all of my books, but I have a shelf of Classics in English translation, Greek and Latin, lots of books about shamanism, mystics, Krishnamurti, et alii. A few classic russian and European novels and plays. several shelves of music and music history. Books about jazz, the realbook, fakebooks, drumming books, orchestration, couterpoint, harmony. Symphonic scores, lots of Russian piano music, Bach, Beethoven, Brahms...Prokofiev. A little poetry that isn't classical. 'On the Road'...I lost many things in the last split with a SO. Other things I can't remember off hand.

    Can you tell I'm an infp?

    I have Lao Tzu, Dostoevsky, Orson Scott Card, Frank Herbert, Daphne DuMaurier, Osho, Paulo Coelho..

    My books are a representation of what I find important in life.

    Osho is for my soul
    Dostoevsky is for my heart
    Lao Tzu is for my mind
    Orson Scott Card is for my spirit
    Frank Herbert is for remaining grounded

    Here are just a very few of mine. I have a dozen book shelves, so I just picked a few that I keep by my bedside book shelf.

    I may add more later, if I feel like it.

    Yeah, I rarely read fiction.

    I mostly read Psychology, Self-Help, How-to Guides, web articles, magazines, etc--- mostly self-improvement related.
