About meRetired librarian, but seem to be busier than ever. Plus the problem of "So Many Books, So Little Time" -- anyone got any good tips as to how to balance reading time among: (1) newspapers (2) magazines (3) books --(a) fiction (b) non-fiction ?

About my libraryThis listing includes all books currently OWNED; plus all those READ since joining LT Oct.'07 - (borrowed, or later discarded). All are finally tagged (however roughly). The "collections" section [recently discovered] is not nearly finished. I do enjoy fiction, but with all the exciting things happening and being discovered in the world - my reading is heavily on the side of non-fiction. Especially psychology, brain-research, spirituality, & biography.
Books I've read have been rated. Except for the older books, those with no stars are, alas, on the many tbr shelves.

* - No one should have to read this book. ( I rarely finish a "one star" book)
** - This book has minor redeeming features such as being an author's early work, having some useful information, or being funny. Potboiler.
*** - Run of the mill. Not quite a potboiler. It held some fascinating element; or I was too tired to be challenged by a good book.
**** - It's very good. Sometimes even a favorite.
***** - It changed my life or it changed my thinking or it deeply touched my heart or it bowled me over with the excellence of the writing.
