About meI love books. I like looking at them, handling them, browsing through them, sorting them, holding them, stacking them, sharing them. Sometimes I even get around to reading them.

About my libraryMy "Your Library" collection is my listing of books that I physically own. I consider this my main collection. My other collections are fun stuff for my own entertainment (but you are welcome to browse in them if you feel so inclined).

Wishlist = I know that I want to buy it.
Check out = It seems interesting, but I don't know yet whether I want to buy it.
E-Books = I have read it and it is stored in my computer or reader.
Replace = I have the book in a tattered paperback edition, and would like to replace it with a hardcover copy.
On order = I'm standing by the mailbox.

The rest of my collections are either obvious, or just for housekeeping purposes.

Star ratings are based on mood and whim, and are subject to change.
A 5 star rating does not necessarily reflect the quality of the writing, it just means that I like a book a lot, and have probably read it many times.

*Please let me know if you notice any errors in my data.
