BTT (#15) ~ category

Booking Through Thursday asks:  "Of the books you own, what’s the biggest category/genre?  Is this also the category that you actually read the most?"
Most of the books I have at my house fall into two categories:  (1) theological books, and (2) books about women.  Yes, these are the books I actually read the most.
Theology:  I have a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in philosophy and religion, a Master of Divinity (MDiv) degree in theology, and worked on a Doctor of Ministry (DMin) degree; I taught Religions of the World at Chattanooga State; I am an ordained United Methodist pastor, retired; and I have written a Bible study on Genesis: Soap Opera with a Twist.  So theology and religion is my primary area of expertise.

Women:  Before that, I taught managers EEO compliance — specifically racism and sexism — and I am now writing a book about Women Unbound.  That means I read lots of books about women, both fiction and nonfiction.  So women and the issues we face is another of my areas of expertise.
These two categories make up the majority of the books I own.  Books I read to relax aren't necessarily ones I care to own, so usually they are borrowed from the library or traded at a used book store.

I am so excited that you are working on a Women Unbound book. Were you inspired by the challenge you did?

I love reading about women's issues, but also enjoy mysteries and memoirs.
