About meAfter surviving cancer, I decided to make reading a priority -- life is short and too much time had been spent not reading. So I began reading more books, and reading them carefully, only to find that months later I couldn't remember what I had thought about them. So I am using LibraryThing to record my thoughts for myself, which is somehow easier to do if I can imagine other people reading them.

About my libraryI'm not using LibraryThing to catalog my actual physical library, or every book I read. Instead, I'm focusing on books representing my current reading interests: American History, plus memoirs and other accounts of the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, plus relatively current fiction, plus military fiction, plus whatever audiobooks I find in the library to play on my commute.

What my ratings mean to me:

5 A must read
4 Recommended
3 Worthwhile
2 Bad outweighs good
1 Nothing good
