Hello Everyone, I am trying to build a neural network model to classify books on category and sub-category based on their name. So far I have 60K data in a dataset. All these data belong to science or engineering category. I want versatile data for all categories and subcategories. So, where would I get data for that??

@Nishant23 Hello, did you need data to classify the books into categories? Sorry was confused as you said you already had data..

@Simmonds14 Yeah I need to classify books into categories and sub-categories. I have data but it is only for Science or Enginnering related books. I need a dataset to cover all aspects of categories like Arts, Finance etc.

@Nishant23 I'm not sure of a single source to find such data, I don't know if there's websites that house information like that. I did a quick google and found this: http://www.usabledatabases.com/database/books-isbn-covers/ it has 18.4million book titles..

i don't think you need a neural network for this
it sounds like a basic frequency analysis + clusters problem
