About meCurrently a fine arts student hopefully with an emphasis in handmade books and printmaking.
various interests ,other than an obsession for books, include: Venetian masks, Skeleton Keys, Obscure instruments, Folklore & Fairy Tales, BPAL, Sealing Wax, Steampunk, Archaic Words, Chado/Chanoyu, Sustainable Living, Boardgames, Hobbit Holes and an overfond use of commas.

About my libraryIn the glacial process of collecting a piece of folklore/ fairy tale from every country (or culture) in the world.
Much of my library, at the moment, is fantasy with a smattering of sci-fi, some classics, theology, asian culture and whatever happened to catch my interest at the time.
I own all the books I catalogue, though I may not have read them. My buying seems to be exceeding my reading ability ;)

Pardon the lack of tags, I will reorganize and fix any mistakes when I have finished cataloguing, I seem to be making progress albeit slow.

My Star Ratings are as follows:

5 - Love it................4 - Like it
3 - It's Okay..............2 - Not Good
1 - Hated it

I'm going to try and stick with emotional response to the book. It might be well written, I may recognize it as an influential thought provoking work but if I don't love reading it I won't rate it a 5. Until Library thing gives me the ability to seperate my ratings out for technical, emotional, overall, genre ect. This is what I'm going with.

Seeing how I own all the books catalouged there should be a significant amount in the love it / like it range, or so I'd hope ^_^
