Contents of my library

Sunday 25 June 2017

Thanks to LibraryThing for revealing how my library stacks up against others of similar size. A new LibraryThing function can automatically classify my books using the Dewey Decimal System and produce a web infographic at the click of a mouse.

The results are interesting, but not surprising:

The top-level score​—​my library is strong in technology (600s), arts (700s), and biography and history (900s); but weak in philosophy (100s), religion (200s), and literature (800s). The full report has much more detail.
