The Library on My Bedroom Floor

There is quite a pile of books on my bedroom floor, put there for all sorts of reasons -- some I'm in the middle of reading, some I used for some particular purpose and have never gotten around to putting on a shelf again, some I intend to get around to reading or re-reading. I thought I would gather together all the titles that are piled on my floor and post them here. It perhaps gives some notion of my interests although, of course, not all of them are equally liked.
