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
