About my libraryPersonal library dominated by classic and current works of science fiction and fantasy (on one hand), and popular non-fiction works of social, behavioral, cognitive, neural and biological science (on the other hand). Plus some mainstream classics, a little bit of current non-genre fiction, and less-tedious portions of my academic library.

Ratings are:
1 = didn't like it (or would not recommend)
2 = thought it was OK -- worth reading, but nothing special
3 = liked it (or would recommended)
4 = liked it a lot (or would recommend highly)
5 = loved it; one of my very favorites
