About meI am your stereotypical bookworm, glasses, too many books and too little space. But, as some great and like minded person once said: "Of course you've run out of book space. Everyone has run out of book space. If you haven't run out of book space, you're probably not worth knowing."

My other time consumers are my lovely Newfoundland dog Nalle and my computer. Oh, and work too, of course. I work as a neuropsychologist at the central hospital and do like my work, even if it eats my reading time.

About my libraryMy library is a pretty good presentation of my likes and my history as reader. I am an avid fantasy reader, but I tend to steer clear of the Wheel of time or George R. Martin-versions of it. Nowadays I seem to be reading more and more of non-fiction, I greatly enjoy good essays of my favorite books and books about books in general.

If I have given stars, I have read the book even if there ain't any dates. Many a reading and acquiring dates from the time before LT, and it is impossible to remember those. For example, I have most certainly read most of Pratchett many many times, several times in a row, but nope, no dates. Same goes for Harry Potter and Tolkien.

5.0★ - WOW! Practically perfect in every way.
4.5★ - Excellent read.
4.0★ - Very good read.
3.5★ - Good read.
--- Anything above 3.5★ is worth reading, in my opinion. ---
3.0★ - Just OK.
2.5★ - Flawed in a significant way.
2.0★ - Major disappointment.
1.5★ - Very poor read.
1.0★ - Couldn't finish reading for whatever reason.
0.5★ - Utter waste of paper and ink; should never have been written.
