About my libraryMy Library is about what I've read, not what I own. While there are far too many books around the house, I can enumerate them simply by walking around. This is about keeping a small record of how I felt about my reading.

Ratings are entirely subjective reactions to books vis-à-vis their genre; I'm not directly comparing War and Peace to Dune.

Anything with a Date Read since I joined LibraryThing is a current rating. Others are simply my recollection of how I felt about the book then.

= I can't believe anyone liked this

to = Disliked, ranging from "probably didn't finish unless compelled" to "there might have been some skimming"

to = Neutral, ranging from "I'll probably forget about it in a year" to "it passed an afternoon"

to Recommended, ranging from "perhaps just to certain readers, or mildly to a general audience" to...well..."I recommend it"

to Ranging from "Strongly recommended" to "This is going to be one of my best reads this year"

= Sentimental favorites—I really don't judge them by anything else so this rating might mean everything or nothing to you

Loved your review of Plainsong, which I just read! I read it some years ago, loved it, and passed it on. Now that Benediction is out, I wanted to order it, but thought I'd better read Eventide first. Did so and loved it too. Now I'll order Benediction. Hauf is just so special. I consider these books contemporary classics, and although they are quite different from most novels, and from what I usually read, they are among my all-time favorites. The man can write!
I enjoyed your review, and I also like your grading system. It's pretty much like mine! I consider three stars an average read, four good for its genre, and four and a half or five a deeply satisfying read (four and a half acknowledges some small lack or flaw or disclaimer).
Thanks for the info. Tad. I'll connect with them tomorrow.


You mentioned many agility trainers are in Bethlehem area. Do you happen to know of a specific person whom you would recommend.

I'd like to get Lilly (our Sheltie) involved soon.

She has a lot of energy and she is highly intelligent. I think she would do well.
