About meTransplanted the family from south Texas to Auckland in 2003. In 2011, we moved from the city to 15 acres in rural Far North New Zealand. I read, I garden, I spend time with my dog Thor, and I watch some TV with DH (mostly detective shows and political humor).

Reading in 2016: At least 75 books from TBR (currently weighing in at 4,768 volumes), fitting TIOLI challenges, guided by AlphaKIT, GeoCAT, and RandomCAT.

About my libraryI am trying to list every book I remember reading, whether I owned it or not. I've also started trying to tag books with the year I read them.

My rating scale is based on a 10-point system. Every book starts at 5. I then add or subtract points given my impression of the premise, the plot, character development, my emotional involvement, and writing. Sometimes I feel like I'm suffering from ratings creep of some sort. I have to remind myself that the whole idea of constructing a TBR list from award winners and nominees is to avoid reading bad books.
