About my libraryI'm a big reader of cartoons, comic strips and speculative fiction. I'm starting to become very fond of manga as well. Then there's my frivolous side, which enjoys neuropsychology, archeology, paleontology, geology, general medicine, biology and classic natural science.

Reviews and Ratings: I've started using a new system for reviews and ratings, but things are pretty mixed up right now as I've not switched everything over, so it's not 100% accurate:

5 stars - Major favorite. Worth owning and reading over and over
4.5 stars - Favorite. Worth owning and re-reading.
4.0 stars - Worth owning.
3.5 stars - Worth reading more than once, but you can let the library store it for you.
3.0 stars - Worth reading once.
2.5 stars - Worth reading if you're particularly interested in the topic.
2.0 stars - Not really worth reading, unless you're stuck in an airport waiting for a late flight.
1.5 stars - Only read if it will be covered on the exam.
1.0 stars - You'll be sorry, and your eyes will burn.
0.5 stars - Abominable. For the goddess' sake don't go in there!

As to reviews, I generally just put opinions in reviews, and leave synopses for the description field.

Tags: Right now, I'm using SF as a generic tag for speculative fiction. I hope to eventually go through the entire library and add more specific tags. Same goes for Comics, which includes cartoons, comic strips, webcomics, etc.
