Some areas of particular focus include:

- History; special interest in cultural and medieval history

- Poetry and poetics

- Latin America

- Aramco World magazine (most issues from 1960-present, not catalogued here)

My wife's collection of Romanian literature, around 100 volumes, and our 5-year-old’s ever-growing number of children’s books will be added to the catalogue shortly.

I plan to eventually catalogue our 1,500 or so DVDs. We also have a large (4000+ albums) music collection, but that’s now completely digital and resides in the cloud. More room for books!
