I've just started putting my books into librarything, so the ones that are going in at the moment are the ones that are lying more or less within arm's reach of my laptop. Thus, a few moments ago, I added Mensa Sudoku, which hangs out on the coffee table as my spouse and I work our way through its 500+ puzzles (we are on number 507). I chuckled as I added it, since it is only a book by virtue of its binding.

My question to the group: what item do you have in your librarything that is least like literature (however you define it)?

I'd say most of my math and engineering textbooks from school. However, I have been known to pick up a textbook and read it for fun, so I guess that warrants my adding them to my library.

How about Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide? Oh, and all my Bird books. Oh yeah, and my Encyclopedia of Antiques.

Great idea for a thread, Meridiani. :o)

My Michelin guides are not truly literature. Particularly the Red Guides, which I collect for their city maps show trolley tracks. Now, the old Baedeker guides do have a greater 'literature' quality as they describe tours by trolley (trams) and walking in pre World War II Europe.

clamairy -- I figured if you got me to join one group I may as well dive in. Of course, I feel a little like a stalker...

i believe God's Man may be one of the first graphic novels. The artist tells the story in all black and white (chiaroscuro, of course). i really don't have anything much but stories, unless you count Hawkins' books and maybe a few esoteric tomes on heidigger, hegel, and neitzche.
