I (intend to) buy all of the books I have listed in my LibraryThing catalog. I like to highlight and take notes in them and the library frowns on that. Also, I enjoy when visitors browse my bookshelves and a title sparks a conversation.

My library consists mainly of history, biography, and current events/politics. I try to be educated about the views I hold. Also, I love learning about and deepening my Catholic faith and have been adding more books in this category.

As for my ratings: I'm no master book reviewer. I'm generally not making comments about the style of prose or anything intellectual like that. Basically, did it keep me interested and did I learn something? Would I recommend it to someone else? Would I re-read it? In terms of my political book ratings: Do I agree with the author, and did they defend themselves sufficiently?

My Rating System:
5: Would be one of my "deserted island" picks.
4: Wow! If I ever get through all my other "wish list" books I'd read that again.
3: That was fine. I'm not upset I spent my valuable reading time on this one.
2: That was a waste of time.
1: This is meant as an insult. (Actually, I don't have any 1-star books beacuse I remove them from my library so as not to muddy up my LibraryThing stats/connections/etc.)
