About My Library
Some of the books in my personal library (mostly the newest aquisitions). Adding more whenever possible.

Some notes on my star ratings:
***** The crème de la crème. Fiction that is well worth re-reading, non-fiction that is authoritative and unsurpassed.
**** The almost-brilliant or 'everyday best'.
*** Worth reading.
** Disappointing.
* Very little to recommend.
