About meI'm a(n)... 35 year old, animal lover, atheist, bookworm, bore, dork, gemini, girl, heterosexual, ISTJ, liberal, library page, loner, old maid, smartass, social phobe, vegetarian/vegan, and all-around weirdo.

About my libraryRATINGS (for books & CDs):

1/5 stars = Didn't like & donated/sold (CDs: 0%: sucked; used to own)

2/5 stars = Not for me, but I've kept it anyway, whether to complete a series or because I like the author, etc. (CDs: 40% - 0%: there's maybe 1 track I like on it)

3/5 stars = It's OK (CDs: 60% - 41%: skip through [more than] half the tracks and it's OK)

4/5 stars = I liked it, but . . . (1 or 2 little things that bugged me) (CDs: 80% - 61%: some skipping required)

5/5 stars = I loved it (I'm pretty forgiving with juvenile books, so you'll probably see a lot of them with 5 stars.) (CDs: 100% - 81%: most of the tracks are good)

TAGS (for books):

Mysteries and thrillers I've lumped into the "suspense" category, just to make it easier for me. Same with childrens and teens: lumped into "juvenile." Ditto with occult, paranormal, urban fantasy, etc. (into "horror"), and novellas (into "short stories").

UPDATES:

3/18/2014 - I'm slowly adding old reviews of books I've read in the past (generally before 2003). No plans on reviewing currents reads, though. Like I mentioned below: too little time. Star-ratings are good enough for me. :)

10/16/2010 — Changed my library from "private" to "public" since LT has added privacy options to books. (knock on wood!)

9/13/2010 — [work in progress] I'm hoping to consolidate all my online catalogs, instead of having everything scattered here, on MyFilmz, and on RateYourMusic. So I'm (slowly) starting to add my movie and music collection to LT.

10/31/2009 — In the spirit of Halloween, I'm dumping my ongoing challenges (Dewey Decimal, Newbery, and A-Z Author/Book) so I can focus on my Paranormal 999 Challenge. Happy Scare Day! :)

8/18/2009 — [work in progress] Another LT project for moi: Scan covers of books without 'em. (Count: 80 naked books--eeps!)

6/7/2008 — My library is now private. I'll make it public again once LT creates privacy features.

2/7/2008 — [still a work in progress] I'm adding year tags to the books I've finished reading (starting in 2001), just to get an idea of how many books I read per year. However, several of these books are rereads/skim-throughs (mainly the juvenile books), so it's not entirely accurate.

1/27/08 — I no longer review books. Too many books; so little time to review them. :)
