I have eight book shelves comprising about 200 linear feet of books. The non-fiction runs from "The Principles of Tantra" and "The Mind's I" to "Domestic Revolutions" and "The Bell Curve" to "Solar Design in the Built Environment", "Quantum Theory" and "Chaos". Plus brewing books, woodworking, computer-related books going back to a vintage Lotus 123 V1.1 manual and DR-DOS 1.0.

Fiction is mainly SciFi, including a first edition of The Foundation Trilogy that I purchased used when I was 6. It's all of a year older than I am.

And an 8 foot closet full of boxes of books.

Is that "Advanced Engineering Mathematics" by Grossman and Derrick? I took ODE's and PDE's from Derrick and used that book. Its a keeper.
