About meI am just starting to rate my books using the star system. For some reason I've been avoiding it (maybe I was afraid to hurt their feelings). Anyway, if you are interested this is how I'm doing it:

5 Stars - not only was this a terrific book but it lingered in my mind after I finished it for one reason or another. Keeper. Re-read.

4 Stars - a terrific book. Keeper. Re-read.

3 Stars - basically a good book. Keeper. Re-read when sick or lazy.

2 Stars - finished it but wasn't too impressed. Wouldn't re-read. Give away.

1 Star - so bad I couldn't even finish it. Give away and hope someone else will love it and give it a good home.

There probably won't be many 1 or 2 star books because I tend to get rid of them sooner or later.

About my library"The buying of more books than one can possibly read is the soul's way of aspiring towards infinity."
