About my libraryAbout Favorite Authors: I think the term Favorite is a little unfortunate. I list here authors who have been important to me at various stages of my life with no implication concerning number of books in my library or entered in LibraryThing. I will let number of books entered speak for itself.

About my use of the star rating system:

For me 2.5 stars is an average good book. Most books I read will be in the 2-3 star range.

However, 0.5-1.5 stars is not meant to convey that the book was horrible. Only that it was way below average. Assuming that I actually finish a book I think is horrible, I will say it is horrible in a review.

A 3.5-5.0 rating will convey that I really like a book. The 5 star rating will indicate that the book is indispensable to me or an indispensable standard.
