Books

The shelves are full. That is, the 5 bookcases devoted to fiction. The 3 we've dedicated to non-fiction are still unshelved, but I'd say we've got enough books in stacks that they'll be filled.

Currently, we've been sorting the non-fiction into the following categories:
PoliSciEco
Language (Foreign, and Linguistics)
Religion
History
Philosophy
Humor

There need to be categories for
Science/Technical/Computer
Reference
Biography (possibly)
Folklore/Mythology
and I forget what else.

Then there's the stuff that could be crossfiled all over. If I believed this shelving was anything near permanant (like, we had a house) I'd be tempted to put notecards where books might go, if they had been filed here ("The Worldly Philosophers" Heilbroner R. shelved under History.) put cards in PoliSciEco and Biography. Or something like that. Also, am totally ready for us to put all these in a database. If Jazz gets her Apple job, maybe Delicious Library. Or Books.app, which I like. Or maybe we;ll make the money to shell out for Readerware, although to really use its advantages would probably take the server version...
