About meWhen I married it was much more than a union of lives - it was also a union of books! A few years on and the merger (of books) has been successfully accomplished. And offspring acquire their own.
About my libraryNow adding the books, shelf by shelf, to LibraryThing. Our actual library breaks down into the following major book cases:
* History (mostly mine) - all up on LibraryThing.
* Ancient & medieval literature (mostly mine) - all up on LibraryThing.
* Biblical studies (mostly mine) - all up on LibraryThing
* Christian books (mine & my wife's) - all up on LibraryThing
* Literature (mine & my wife's) - all up on LibraryThing
* Visual arts (mostly mine)- all up on LibraryThing
* Children's literature (my wife's & my children's)
* Cooking (mine & my wife's)
* Music (my wife's)
* Everything else - all up on LibraryThing
I've included Dewey Decimal call numbers for every book to allow listing in sensible order. Call numbers with an E preface (Early years) are books suitable for infants to age 7 or 8. Call numbers with a J preface (Junior) are books suitable for age 8 or 9 to 15 or 16.
I am willing to scan a few specified pages if you can't find a particular book anywhere else.
