I don't have a real bookshelf or anything, but here's what's left after the last round of book donations. Sadly all my non-fiction is packed away (minus God No, which was a gift I haven't read yet).

That's not your book shelf. You'd never own that kind of water.

^ I think Tolkien is the only name I recognize there, DWV! But I'm guessing the other books are mainly fantasy too. BTW, I used to have exactly the same DIY shelving system in the closet of my previous bedroom. I also like the little teaser in your photo; we can just see the clothes hangers, but not the clothes!

^ Can't make out many titles, Mindfulness, but they seem to be pretty eclectic: Gnostic Bible, Our Universe, Ayn Rand, Basic Electronics, Dan Brown. The topics, like the books, seem to be all over the place . You have the untidiest bookcase so far and you seem to be pursuing some arcane alchemical research in your spare time. So kudos on both counts

Thanks, I used to have a smaller bookshelf in Iowa but when I Moved out here, I had books here at my parents house from years ago lol so I combined my book collections and it turned out to be a bunch. my oldest book is a book called " The History of the World" but its from 1895, so what they thought was history at that time.

Sontag is difficult, but Wallace is all over the place. Many of his essays, like the one titled "A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again" (in which he goes on a cruise for Harper Magazine and writes about the experience), are light enough and downright funny. He can write both as an academic and as more of a journalist. He's also written several books of fiction, but I've read none of them yet.

Today I probably read two non-fiction for each novel I read, although in the past novels absolutely dominated. My attitude used to be, "Non fiction = school text book, so I'm not reading it unless a teacher tells me to"!
I watch plenty of movies and my comics are fiction too, so I don't actually understand why I so strongly prefer non-fiction when it comes to books. So did your dad also not enjoy movies? ... Or comics?

That Sandman omnibus is giving me a boner.
