My Kindle Digital Library

by Rachel Baker on October 17, 2010

This is a list of books in my Digital Library on the Kindle:

(Note: My categories are my own and don’t reflect what genre these should be categorized in)

Antiquity:
The Republic – Plato
The Notebooks of Leonardo Da Vinci (complete) ~ simply because I could.
Ethics – Aristotle
Politics: A Treatise on Government – Aristotle
Laws – Plato

Personal and Home Management:
Everyday Foods in War Time – Mary Stewart Rose
The Ladies Work-Table Book Containing Clear and Practical Instructions in Plain and Fancy Needlework, Embroidery, Knitting, Netting and Crochet – Anonymous from 1844
The American Frugal Housewife – Lidia Maria Francis Child from 1832
The Book of Good Manners: A Guide to Polite Usage for All Social Functions – Walter Cox Green, there’s no date on this one that I’ve found yet
The Book of Household Management – Mrs. Isabella Mary Beeton from 1859-1861 in 12 parts, and published in a bound edition in 1861

What I’m calling Classics:
Various Algernon Blackwood – early stuff from the late 1800s and early 1900s
Various Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley – from mid to late 1800s
The Man Who Would be King – Rudyard Kipling
Middlemarch – George Eliot
Various Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Various Leo Tolstoy
Fairy Tales Every Child Should Know – edited by Hamilton Wright Mabie from 1905
All of Jane Austin (that’s a whole ‘nother post)

I also have a category named Cookbooks which are cookbooks from the Woman’s Institute Library of Cookery – I’m not sure from when these were published, but the preface is discussing a housewife being enthusiastic about mastering and dignifying this womanly art.  In my mind, these books would be old and musty.

I also have a category named Transcendentalists, and one for Comparative Religions, and one focused on Japanese history and fairy tales.

I’ll continue to itemize what’s in these categories over time.
