I do not know what I did. But I had just spent five hours fill out my list per LC Classification...then I hit some key and it deleted it all. So to not make that mistake again... Just do not know what key I hit on my keyboard to delete the entire web page.... hope I do not do it again.
That's happened to me on occasion. It's awful. :(
When I made my Dewey and LoC lists, I did the work on Google using their Documents web application. It periodically saves what you're working on so there's less chance of total loss.
Thanks for the sympathy and encouragement...I'll just go slowly. I'l ldo the A's and the one from section D I remember and add more later.

As categories are completed they will be listed in Bold. I really do not see how I will complete some of them... Do I really want to read those books? LoL
I can see having to force myself in order to complete two or three of the categories.
I know exactly what you mean! Ironically, many of the catagories I know I'll have to force myself to finish are ones that you have done (U and V, namely).
Kaeli, I was thinking the same thing when I first read this thread! U and V seem like the most difficult by far.
Ditto on the U and V difficulty! I don't even have any options for those. John McPhee, who writes very well about many esoteric topics can cover a few of these. I actually went through his works to see what tough categories he covers; UA La Place de la Concorde Suisse, in English despite the title, about the Swiss Army (of little-red-knife fame), UF The Curve of Binding Energy, though that seems to be more a biography than anything else -- biographies are always options for some of the toughies, and VM The Survival of the Bark Canoe, which has no reviews on LT but I would guess is about what the title suggests, are relevant here.
I'm not much looking forward to R, either.
I had forgotten about La Place de la Concorde Suisse until I read your post. I read it several years ago and thought it was great, and I'm not into military books at all.
R is just tough because of how they break everything down-Internat Medicine, General Medicine and Pediatrics were a snap. But finding Opthamology, Otology, Dentistry and anything on botanical medicine (What in the heck is Thomasinian medine?) is proving to be a nightmare.
This is an "L" book that wasn't bad.
Cultural Literacy: What Every American Needs to Know by E.D. Hirsch Jr. (1988) (my tags: education, anthropology, culture) LOC call #: LB45 .H57
Were any of the U and V books you read the kind that might appeal to people without a particular interest in the subjects?
Thanks for recommending The Hundredth Monkey, vpfluke. I'll keep an eye out for it.
Wow that is a tough question. I think the book that might be easy on the nerves is 'Patton's Third Army'. It is not that long and can be read in a day and is on a scale that is not very detailed. A lot of the others are very technical about the armament, range, etc. Great for those really into the equipment.
I really enjoyed 'Taschenbuch der Kriegsflotten. 19. Jahrgang 1918'. It is in German, it is a ship identification book (ie. spotters book) designed for wartime use so you can identify what the capabilities of the ship you are facing. Next would be Guns at Sea'.
'The History of the Chaplain Corps' I found interesting. But you may need a Military Library to find it.
I had to read a lot of books and choose many. Like 'Navigation' I was ordered to read...and tested on! But then I lived on a boat and ship (yes there is a difference) for a few years.
Oh! Actually 'Careers in the Army' would be dry but easy to read...if you can handle seeing job descriptions and their associated MOS numbers. You may be able to get this for free from a recruiter. Of course it has been decades since I talked with a recruiter so things may have changed since then.
