About My Library
For my first 3 years on LT, I only added books I was actually reading to my collection. For 2014, I'm going to catalogue all the books I own (To Read) as well as create an active Wish List.

Also for 2014, I'm starting a newly articulated rating system.

5 = Breathtaking. This book touched me in a way that only a perfect book can do.
4.5 = A wonderful read, among my favorites of the year.
4 = A great read; truly enjoyable.
3.5 = Not *quite* great but I'm truly glad I read this.
3 = Pretty good, with a few things done well.
2.5 = Average, and life is too short to read average works.
2 = A bit below average. A waste of time.
1.5 = Nearly no redeeming qualities. Really rather bad.
1 = Among the worst books I've ever read.

About Me
I can buy books faster than I can read them.

Like that makes me stand out in this crowd. Ha.
