About meI am a book lover in a family of book lovers. We have long since filled all our bookshelves, added more, and still have stacks of books that haven't found shelf space.

About my libraryI've begin gradually adding my books to Librarything but its slow going, shelf by shelf. What's here so far is a mishmash selected for the convenience of their locations more than any other reason. It may all get here one day.

Regarding My Star Ratings:
No stars means I haven't read it or read it too long ago to remember how good or bad it is.
Half a star means, "I must be keeping this for sentimental reasons 'cause I hate reading it." Just a bad book.
1 star means, "I didn't like it."
2 stars mean, "I'm lukewarm about it" and found it adequate, perhaps with significant flaws but some redeeming aspects.
3 stars mean, "I liked it" and found it a solid read. A good book.
4 stars mean, "I really liked it a lot" and recommend it. A very good book.
5 stars mean, "I love it!" It's truly excellent and reached me in an extraordinary way.
