Inspired by this thread in the Dewey challenge group, I thought I'd start a thread here.

I've just started Conquering Gotham, the title of which is a mere coincedence given what movies are currently out in theaters. It will take care of the TF heading (railroad engineering and operation); my only T's to date are knitting/fiber books (TT), a photography textbook (TR), and a cookbook (to take care of the TX's).

BR Christianity - I've already read three books for this subheading, but because it'll help fill out my Dewey Challenge list, I'll be starting The Christian World: A Global History.

I'm reading The Origins of Greek Thought in DF, History of Greece. I've already read a book in this category and the corresponding Dewey one, but oh well.

I thought I'd revive this thread and list the residents-of-the moment in my Currently Reading collection.

This morning I dove headfirst into the GT subheading with Eileen Power's Medieval People. Meanwhile at home I'm reading yet another E, Everyday Life in Early America. This one is a small book and has been sitting on my shelf unread for years.

Meanwhile, I'm working on a pair of stockings from Knitting Vintage Socks (TT). I don't know which I should find more distressing: the fact that my knitting won't help me fill out my headings* or that I'm maybe a third of the way done with one stocking that I've been working on since Thanksgiving.


*All my knitting books have fall under the TT subheading (Handicrafts. Arts and crafts.), with the exception of a few magazines and a single oddball, Jane Sowerby's Victorian Lace Today. This book was somehow classified under NK (Decorative arts), despite being little different from my other knitting books.

Great idea to save this thread from dormancy. Right now I've got 3 books going -

PN Literature (General): The Starfleet Survival Guide

G Geography (General). Atlases. Maps Oxford Atlas of the World

D History (General): Invented Knowledge: False History, Fake Science and Pseudo-religions

Nothing that gets me a new category, alas.

I have a PJ (Sindbad and Other Tales from the Arabian Nights, a QH (Rewilding the World, my current Early Reviewers book, and, well, a PZ (rereading Harry Potter for some badly needed comfort-reading.

....and another revival.

TF Nothing like it in the world
DS The amazing adventures of the jewish people
E Half moon

unclassified?! Wildfire and americans ... it's Dewey 307 .. but I might classify it under CB History of Civilizations, which has the subclass 'Geography and civilization' which I think generally suits the discussion of the book - it's about how American population dispersion (ie sprawl) has led to development in fire-prone areas, putting people at risk.

ETA that only TF will be a new heading for me. Dangit.

The Library of Congress puts Wildfire and Americans in HT.

That probably makes more sense - HT includes urban planning, suburban cities and towns etc. The book isn't really about civilization, more focused on one aspect of American landscape development.

Oh well - I already have an HT - the death and life of great american cities which is really really fascinating, and still applicable despite its age.

I'm reading four books right now, but only one gives me an LC, Wayward Puritans: A study in the Sociology of Deviance (BX). I like it but I'm supposed to be taking notes and I like reading more than taking notes so I tend to pick up one of the other books rather than this one.
