About meI've been keeping a list of books read since 1991 - and I'm slowly entering them in this library in chronological order by year read. I don't own most of these and rarely buy books anymore except for special needs or reference. I love reference books. I lost most of my owned books in a flood which were temporarily in storage years ago. I'm limiting myself to two or three bookcases now.
About my libraryAll of my ratings are generally based on my personal enjoyment level and don't reflect my estimation or anyone else's on literary merit. So they may not be reliable recommendations for others.
