About my libraryMy Tags are not too systematic. They are mainly chosen by whatever seemed significant in the book (with the result that one book set in Ireland, for example, may be tagged with Ireland, while another may not.) So they are complete, the way google would be, but just indicate what I consider to be significant. I've also started to add "fiction" and "nonfiction" tags to all books. I've borrowed ideas several Tags from other Librarything members. Some of my Tags could use some fine-tuning.

The star ratings are mainly based on if I liked book, and not on whether the book is a recognized classic. So, great literature might have a low rating if I didn't like it. As with the Tags, the star-ratings are very subjective, and subject to random adjustments.
