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.

*** Readable but flawed in several ways. Just enough right to keep me interested.
***1/2 Very readable. Solid workmanship.
**** Very good indeed. Flashes of brilliance, engaging content. Recommended
****1/2 Terrific read. Highly recommended.
***** A five is subjective -- either GREAT book challenging, upsetting, transforming or I may have loved it as in Could. Not. Put. It. Down. You might hate it. A+
