We got a new set of bookshelves installed recently, and for the first time I can remember all of my books fit on the shelves! I chronicled the process of reshelving, reorganizing, and reconnecting to my collection on Twitter. Tweets collected here. At the end, I requested some recommendations. My history section is white guys writing about Europe and America. I have greek philosophers and a reasonable collection of histories of Christianity, the Enlightenment, and Science, but otherwise my histories of ideas have gaping holes. I have few novels and little poetry, my science fiction weights towards white guys and is lacking in optimism, and above all else I'd love to give my kids books that will let their imaginations soar and welcome people from across the country and the world. If you have suggestions for books to fill the (literal and metaphorical) gaps in my shelves, do let me know!
