An English Teacher's Bookshelves Part 2 - Penguin Classics and Others

Ever wonder what the Lit. Teacher reads at home? Looking around my home library, I was struck by how eclectic and non-canonical my book collection was. While classics and curriculum standards are certainly present, the number of popular, genre, and academically frowned upon works that I have read and kept fascinates me. Therefore, I have started in one corner and begun to list what I have. Since I tend to organize my library by category and / or authors, I am trying to keep the lists manageable in length and somewhat unified in content. Finally, because I know some people will wonder, there is nothing on this list that I do not actually possess; most are physical books, while a very few are ebooks.
This installment features the Shelves that remind me what I do for a living.
