after years of culling a collection that was at least four of these shelves, i have curated a finely tuned esoteric assortment of books. they are mostly history, philosophy/religion, geography, urban planning, and martial arts related. there is some select fiction thrown in, like douglas adams, philip k dick, gore vidal, and some PG Wodehouse. i have a kindle account full of more of the same of all. oh yeah. a bunch of calvin and hobbes, of course. and yes, that is a hufflepuff scarf. dont judge me.

Mostly mystery books or true crime and on another shelf I have all film and entertainment books.
I do read but mostly late at night or when I'm hooked on something really good into the book.

quite a few novels, about 10 books about or written by J.R.R. Tolkien (with about 15 more on my wishlist), a few political theory classics (the prince, the federalist/antifederalist papers) and other essay collections, some textbooks, chess books, and a few biographies and histories. I'd upload a picture, but I'm being too lazy right now, haha.

Mostly Moonstone Books Prose collections, Poe, Doyle, Wells, Burroughs, Bradbury, Dickens, King, Pratchett, Naylor, Asprin with a smattering of Straub, Koontz, Robeson and a few others (including tons of cookbooks). Also a ton of Graphic Novels (mostly DC and Marvel). Two things I really enjoy are William Poundstone's Big Secrets (factual trivia and stories) series of books and Todd Wilbur's Top Secret Recipes series.

We have only one family bookshelf so we have virtually anything in there. My books include the Harry Potter series, The Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit, some comic books, and a growing collection of manga, my latest addition being the first volume of One Punch Man.

There are also some books that act as collections for very famous novels. It's from these books that I read many great stories like Robinson Crusoe, Frankenstein and stories from Franz Kafka.

Is no one going to talk about the books in the OP? Nothing against them, I just found some of those titles hilarious! I totally need to read F**k Feelings. I feel like I already understand that book completely! I don't have much of one right now, just a couple of LN and more recent popular books.

I recommend it it's the "bible" for the 21st century.

Many of my books are textbooks and stuff for various different computer programs. I still possess many of my textbooks that I had been using during my college days (although I haven't touched the majority of them since) seeing that my professors are telling that there might come a time where I will need to reach for them. There's that, and I have a few manga titles as well. I'm just not much of a manga reader seeing that my shelf space is quite limited and I prefer the digitalized version, but there are some manga titles I really like and all.

Haven't fully unpacked since I moved, so it's probably even more eclectic than normal.

I have things like Sun Tzu's Art of War next to thermodynamics, next to books on dog psychology, next to Tolkien, next to programming, next to history, next to Warhammer 40k, next to physics books.. I also need to dust.

Few comic books not on a shelf though. Those are in a box and I don't have time to take a picture of them.
