About My Library
These are books I've read.

(CDs and DVDs are catalogued at HerenyaMedia.)

My reviews are generally spoiler-free. Ratings are subjective and occasionally arbitrary -- based on quality, how much I liked the book, how it compared with others or a combination of the above. Usually 3 stars = good book.

Wishlist contains books particularly want to own. I use lists for tracking books I'd like to read. Rec contains books I want included in connections and recommendations.

"Publication" information is accurate for albooks I own and also those read since ~2009.
"Publication date" intentionally lists each book's original publication date.

Comments are welcome.
About Me
I love visiting libraries and bookshops. It's like going on a treasure hunt. I never know exactly what I'm going to find.

"Do you find it easy to get drunk on words?"
"So easy that, to tell you the truth, I'm seldom perfectly sober. Which accounts for my talking so much."

-- Harriet Vane and Lord Peter Wimsey, from Gaudy Night by Dorothy L. Sayers
