Of the books you own, what’s the biggest category/genre?
Is this also the category that you actually read the most?
The BTT questions come from Deb at Booking Through Thursday
I’ve never counted the exact number of volumes in my shelves, but a rough estimation is that around 55-60% are novels/fiction. Out of those probably 65% in Swedish, the rest in English + a few in German. Out of my non-fiction, the biggest category/genre would be Christian theology/spirituality; the rest a mix of history, mythology, psychology, language, dictionaries… whatever.
And yes, I suppose that on the whole, my bookshelves give a rather fair representation of my reading. Had I kept every book I ever bought though (not to mention library books), there would no doubt be even more Swedish (since I am Swedish). I’d also say that crime fiction is probably a bit underrepresented in my collection because I tend to borrow more of those than I buy.
