You say tomato, I say tomatoe

If you haven't noticed it by now, let me send some of your stickiness to The Typophile Library. My Question pertains to the categories. I'm having a bit of quandary over the naming of them. For instance, "Multimedia Design", when I say multimedia I think television, radio, internet. But, I found today as I was posting that some books only cover internet. And then I realized that perhaps the lot of you, with opinions waiting to be voiced, might share some with me.

And, while I'm mentioning categories. If you see any major gaffs as far as the books going in the right sections... well, point those out to me as well. But let's do that by email -- wardle@typophile.com.

Thanks for the input so far.

John -- Let's just say, and I believe it is safe to say, I still own at least 70% of the books listed so far.

We have a lot of books represented there, now all we need more reviews! Surely with all of the typing going on in the forums, a few articulate sentences here and there could be massaged into shape for a book review or two.

For internet books I might go with "Interactive Media".

I agree, Interactive media is a good distinction, but I think it could be a subset of multimedia. Of course, then print would be too. Just put Interactive in its own category, and have another for, motion design. A horrible name for broadcast and film work, but at least one we all understand.

Tiffany, do you buy all those books, or just put the ones you see up here. Cuz if you buy them all, I'm impressed

too bad, I always took good care of your loaners. its still enough to make me more than jealous. By the way, thanks for lending them to us. It was a real help. It was also a curse, because i have the bug now.
