My previous list was put together haphazardly, and I haven't updated it in a while, so I'm starting a better, more organized list.

I have some textbooks on here. If I read something with the same subheading that I think worth listing, I'll change them.

I do have some books cataloged that could "plug" holes here, but I haven't listed them on this thread if I haven't actually read them. That said, if you see a book in my library (and there's some evidence that I've read it, like a rating) that could plug a hole, feel free to send me a profile message.
