About My Library
I'm a book distiller. I finish quickly, lend out the majority then whittle the choice few to the barest level for safe keeping. Those that stay have special significance. They become weathered but beloved, friends.

My Rating scale (thanks to bell7)
1 star - Forced myself to finish it
2 stars - Dislike
2.5 stars - I really don't know if I liked it or not
3 stars - Sort of liked it; or didn't, but admired something about it despite not liking it
4 stars - I liked it, but it's probably not reread worthy
4.5 stars - Excellent, ultimately a satisfying read, a title I would reread
5 stars - A book that I absolutely loved, would absolutely reread, and just all-around floored me.
About Me
My tallness factor (lack thereof) and my proclivity for daydreaming while in a bookstore or library has resulted in threats...to tie a balloon to my wrist so that others might save me from my word-induced stupor.

Because I was discouraged (!!) to read books as a child, I read voraciously now. My only rule = 1 classic : 2 "fluff" books.
