About My Library
Pay very little attention to the ratings I enter for books. I use them so that the recommendation engine can take them into account. Two or less means I wasn't fond of the book. 2.5 to 3.5 is an okay but not great book. Four and above I liked bunches. Beyond that, whether something is worth 4.5 stars or 5 stars for example is pretty much a guess that depends on my mood that day.
