About my library* Novels: Long-form fiction works, including novellas.
* Short stories: Not novels.
* Graphic novels & comic strips: Original graphic novels, manga, and compilations collecting comic-book stories and newspaper strips.
* Drama: Play scripts.
* Poetry: Also includes essays by poets on the subject of poetry.
* Religion, mythology, folk tales: Books on or about the aforementioned subject, including collections of myths, tales, &c.
* Magazines & pulps: What it says.
* Reference: Dictionaries. Encyclopedias.
* Cookbooks: Mmmm.
* Gaming: Mostly roleplaying games.
* Miscellany: Generally books published as non-fiction though clearly fiction (e.g. Geoffrey of Monmouth), but also other odds & ends (e.g. prose translations of poetry).
* Government press: My minor hobby. Books produced for export by government-run publishers from the People's Republic of China up to the end of the Cultural Revolution (though a few post-Mao publications slip in as well), and the Soviet Union. (Would like to add books from: Albania, East Germany, DPRK, and Yugoslavia, but those are less common in second-hand shops.)
