About meI love books and reading. I cannot remember a time when I didn't. I buy far more books than I am capable of reading and then there is the library too. My busy life gets in the way of reading as much as I wish I could.

I am a 28 year old student of pharmacy. I live in Charleston, SC with my husband, Chris, and our two cats, BIN and Sakai. (Neither of my cats is the cat in the photo. It's just a random photo I liked off the web.) I also enjoy learning/school (I'd be a permanent student if I won the lotto), writing, art, films, music, and spending a bit too much time on the internet.

About my libraryI use my LT account to keep track of everything I've read or started to read, whether I own it, have borrowed it, or it's from the library. Books are tagged appropriately in caps bookshelved - now the collection My Library - (if we own it), name of who I borrowed it from, or library. This info is also in my comments section. If it's a book club read or a book challenge, it's also tagged - now collections - as so and written in the comments. I started tagging all this so I could sort by various things, - but now some of these tags have become collections. (I needed to change my profile to take into account how I've reorganized My Books since collections have debuted, but I can't be bothered rewriting this section at the moment so I just edited the parts I've changed from tags to collections. This has probably only made it more confusing.)

My wishlist is any book I might be interested in reading, not books I want to own a copy of.

My favorite authors list isn't a true representation of all my favorite authors. Rather, it's a list of authors whose books I've really enjoyed since I've started logging my reading on LT. If I started to make a list of all my favorite authors so far in my lifetime, I'd just be sitting here and adding authors for hours.

I rate my books based on how the book compares to other books of the same type. So a good junky romance/suspense novel isn't on the same level as a good literary fiction, it's just good compared to other junky romance/suspense novels. This is my star rating scale:

5 = Loved it! Unputdownable!
4.5 = Excellent!
4 = Very Good
3.5 = Good
3 = Above Average
2.5 = Average
2 or less = Nah
