About meI can buy books faster than I can read them.

Like that makes me stand out in this crowd. Ha.

About my libraryFor my first 3 years on LT, I only added books I was actually reading to my collection. For 2014, I'm going to catalogue all the books I own (To Read) as well as create an active Wish List.

Also for 2014, I'm starting a newly articulated rating system.

5 = Amazing! Perfect!
4.5 = Wow, this was great, among my favorites of the year!
4 = Very good. Definitely recommended and I'll certainly read more by this author.
3.5 = Quite good, has several redeeming qualities, I'm likely to read more by this author.
3 = Pretty good, with a few things done well. If you like this kind of thing, this is probably worth reading.
2.5 = Average. This didn't kill me, but I probably won't seek out this author in the future, as life is too short to read average books.
2 = A bit below average. A waste of time.
1.5 = Nearly no redeeming qualities. Really rather bad.
1 = Among the worst books I've ever read.
