Default What's on your bookshelf?

I have always thought that you could tell a lot about a person by the books on their bookshelf. Here is a pic of my bookshelf in my office. Lets see yours!

Several chuck palaunik books, a few Paul Coelho books, numerous patricia cornwell crime novels, and a Left Behind collection that grows on a daily basis.

Runs the gamut, from history and philosophy to Calvin and Hobbes and Far Side, political to self help, woodworking and landscaping to animal husbandry and computers. National Pornographic, Harry Potter and Left Behind. Too many to list.

I have several bookshelves in my office, and the contents are very diverse:

-several shelves of books on Aboriginal art and culture (including old ethnographic texts long since out of print)
- collections of poetry (Allan Ginsberg, Yusef Komunyaka, Robert Pinsky, Jack Kerouac, Gary Snyder, Gregory Corso)
- Beat Generation novels, mainly Kerouac
-Collected Works of Shakespeare
-The Riverside Chaucer
-a few photography texts
-National Geographic
-cookbooks
-the requisite brewing texts
