About meI'm a voracious reader but nonetheless I never quite manage to read as much as I'd like. I currently read a wide range of books, though my library does appear to be mostly dominated by science fiction novels due to a few years of reading almost exclusively in that genre. That being said, I do predominantly read SF and fantasy novels still. I also like to read non fiction books, particularly science and history.

About my libraryI started to record the books I was reading towards the end of 2004 and around the same time I switched from predominantly reading library books to buying my own books. Therefore, this is mainly a catalogue of books that I own and have read in the past 6-7 years. Some of them are listed as 'read but unowned' because they represent library books, books lent to me by friends, or books that I read but then passed on to other people.

The rating scale used is an entirely subjective one, where a rating of five stars indicates a book that I loved, four stars a book that I really liked, three stars a book that I mostly enjoyed, two stars a book that I didn't like and one reserved for books that I truly loathed. Most of the ratings are skewed towards the positive end, as I tend not to finish or keep books that I really disliked.
