About my libraryAll actual books in my library are under the heading "Your Library". For books containing two or more titles within each book, I have listed the titles separately into different general categories. For example, Jane Austen's novels are listed individually (in novels in library book collection), but are to be found in only one edition of her collected works in my library. The same procedure has been followed for the novels, short stories, plays, poems and non-fiction works that appear in collected volumes. This way each title can be accounted for, while at the same time, each physical edition of a book is also counted separately. The collected volume where titles can be found is in my Comment section. Read but unowned is self-explanatory.

Book covers are shown for books in my library only. All covers shown are the actual covers of the books in my library.

Tags are generalized. For world literature categories, they are separated by language, not by nation. A Spanish literature tag refers to fictional works originally written in that language whether the author be from Spain, Mexico, Argentina, or wherever. Anything fictional without a designated language tag is presumed to be English language literature with no distinction placed on country of origin or ethnicity of author.

Some Definitions:
"Softcover" books are oversized paper bound books, larger than pocket size.
"Plays" incorporates plays, skits, masques, interludes, operas, ballets.
"Novellas" are works between roughly 35-120 pages.
"First Edition" may refer to the actual first printing of that title or to the first printing by a particular publisher.

Some books are available for swap. Please inquire which book you are interested in and I will see if I want anything from your library.

The Library remains a work in progress.
Enjoy your readings and studies.
