About meI mostly read science fiction and fantasy, anything under the umbrella of SFF.

About my libraryI've been recording all the books I have read since 2005. Most of them have been added to LibraryThing although there are a few gaps here and there. The main thing missing from my library is my collection of comics and graphic novels, although I don't read many of those these days. I do try to keep my library up-to-date and rate all the books that I read.

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.
