About my libraryBooks are tagged & rated using my own eccentric non-system. SF is tagged with century of publication, not setting; as for historical fiction, I'm not consistent, but generally I tag with year of setting.

I don't try to describe each book in tags, just enter information that helps me make interesting connections between books. After all, you don't know how many books on pig husbandry you have until you check.

Enjoy, fellow-readers!
