About meThe books shown in my LT library are books I've read, not books I own or books I want to read. To read are books I want to read, regardless of whether I own them.

I rate books as follows:

5 stars=absolutely loved it, one of the best of the year for me
4 stars=liked it
3 stars=not bad, somewhat neutral
2 stars=didn't care for it
1 star =hated it
0 stars=why did I bother?

When I rate/review a book, I also figure my expectations about that book into equation and also think about other books I've read by that author or about that subject.

About my libraryI read all sorts of books but my favorites are mysteries of all kinds, especially those featuring amateur sleuths. I also love reading books about baseball, in particular about my beloved Chicago Cubs.

In 2013, I read 150 books (up from more than 107 in 2012.

As I look ahead to my 2014 reading, I thought back to my 2013 reading. Here's my favorite 10 for 2013:

1. How the Light Gets In by Louise Penny
2. The Mirror by Marlys Millhiser
3. You Were Never in Chicago by Neil Steinberg
4. One Summer, America: 1927 by Bill Bryson
5. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
6. Baseball as a Road to God by John Sexton
7. City of Scoundrels by Gary Krist
8. Dark Tide by Stephen Puleo (about the Great Boston Molasses Flood)
9. Monuments Men by Robert M. Edsel
10. Poisoned Prose by Ellery Adams

For 2014, my main challenge is the 2014 category challenge. I'm also involved in the 75 books group.

My categories for 2014 include:

1. Books that are the First in a Series
2. Books that are Next in a Series
3. Books that are the Most Recent in a Series
4. Food-Related Fiction
5. Abandoned Mystery Series (ones that I last read before 1/1/11)
6. American Authors Challenge
7. Novels (I’m thinking nonmysteries here)
8. Cities
9. Cold
10. Nonfiction (with an emphasis on 20th century)
11. Baseball Books
12. Sports Books
13. Books about Religion and Spirituality
14. Overflow—Books That I Can’t Get Enough Of
