I have a list of almost 30 books about transgender issues that I am slowly working my way through. These include books about crossdressers, transsexuals, intersexed people, etc. There were a few books in the Bookshare collection, but I thought with almost 6,000 members (this even before the new college program), that statistically there must be readers out there who could benefit by this information. I am anyway, just for the learning. I am scanning them very carefully, assuming some members will want the information for personal reasons, and others as reference or textbooks in gender studies classes. I think I already have about 6 or 8 in, 2 in Step 1, and one more here scanned and ready to read/edit. Another handful here waiting for scanning. Between these books I am throwing in other odds and ends I hear about and get from the library, or books from family members' libraries. Just thought I'd give y'all a general idea why I'm suddenly doing all these transgender books. It's a personal project to develop a solid sub-genre. All of the books have been recommended by "the people themselves" from the Q Center (The Queer Center) here in Portland, OR. Some I will add personal reviews to after they are on site. And I still have "Harrius Potter et Camera Secretorium" here in Latin to scan, some Judith Viorst poetry that's not in BS yet, Peg Bracken, other goodies I grabbed from my mom's shelves.
