About my libraryMy library includes my favorites among the books I've read since 2000. I've also added some earlier ones that I consider special. (The numbers in my "tag" window indicate the month and year I read that particular book.)
My ratings are based on comparisons within a particular genre, e.g., literary fiction, mystery, thriller, non-fiction. So I don't have to compare a book by John Steinbeck to one by Elizabeth George (that's way too difficult for me to do)! I don't include books that I rated lower than three stars. In fact, I try not to finish those!
