About meI'll read a Pony Club Manual if there's nothing else. When I am not reading I'm striding the woods with my dog or playing Irish music on harp and concertina (at the same time, naturally, I'm very talented).

About my libraryRated books might not be in my physical library. Unrated books likely ARE in my house. The Spousal Unit has a lot of art, architecture and design books, listed because I am sure I am acquiring their contents by osmosis.

I used to finish even bad books, but nowadays the moment it is clear the book is less than a three-star read I'm done.

less than *** Unreadable
*** Flawed but readable.
***1/2 Very readable. Solid workmanship. Thin in some aspects.
**** Very good indeed. Flashes of brilliance, engaging content, characters, themes developed. Recommended
****1/2 Highly recommended
***** I loved it, either because it is an inspired or profound work or I. Could. Not. Put. It. Down.

Fours are generally agreed upon as 'good' book by everyone.
A five is a more subjective assessment - a book I loved.
