About meMe?
Love to read, discuss what I've read and discover the recommendations of others. It's really unnecessary to even mention that. It's why we're all here.

About my libraryRating scale as of 8-29-14:
5 stars = I love this book so much I want to hug it and keep it forever.
4 stars = Close to perfection but not quite there.
3 stars = There's just something that bugs me.
2 stars = Words, words, words, nothing but words
1 star = How many paper planes can I make with this waste of pulp. How much warmth will it generate in the fireplace?

A little bit of this and a little bit of that. I don't usually look for a specific genre I just want a good, thought provoking book or one just for fun. I usually set books free which I've enjoyed but will not reread and those I really do not like. My library consists of books I absolutely adore and will reread and books I have yet to read.
