About meWriter, reader, mother, cook, geek, cynical idealist.

About my libraryMy Library represents books that have shaped my reading/writing life. It doesn't include every book I've read, or indeed every book I own, just those books that for some reason I consider significant to me. I've tried to write at least a brief review of every book I've read since 2001.

I have a 4-point rating scale:
- Loved it
- Meh (the bulk of the books I read)
- Hated it
- Didn't finish it

Needless to say, this doesn't correspond well to LibraryThing's 5-point scale (or 10-point scale, if you count half stars). I use the ratings to assess both how much I liked the book and also how significant it was in my overall reading life. Therefore, perfectly good but forgettable books may fall down to the bottom of the scale, while not perfect but very significant books may float to the top.
