About my libraryThe library consists of books that I have read at least partially and found useful and/or entertaining. I own many of them, some at home, some at the office, but I also list books I borrowed from the public library or owned in the past.

My ratings roughly mean: Excellent (5 stars), Very Good (4 stars), Good (3.5 stars), Serviceable (3 stars), Bad (2 stars), Atrocious (1 star),.. and everything in between.
