About my libraryHeavy on mysteries, Judaica, writing, linguistics, and old Quaker books, with a smattering of cookbooks, history, and science fiction (mostly Star Trek in the owned collection). For relaxation/vegging out, I have a weird fascination with time travel and certain saga-type romances.

I've kept my categories fairly broad, so that cookbooks includes not only straight cookbooks but other books about food. When I have everything catalogued, I may go back and add more refinement. (Added note: my tags are already getting more detailed. So much for keeping things simple.....)

On ratings: for the most part, I only buy/keep books that I like and/or know that I will use more than once (libraries are for the others), so my standard rating for books I own is probably somewhere in the 2.5 range. Books with a 1 are mostly those I bought because I am interested in the topic and would like to have fairly comprehensive collection for the topic but I was disappointed in the actual book.
