About my libraryMy library contains both the books I've read and those that I own but have not yet read. I've found many great authors by picking up one or more of their books at used book sales (for 5 cents or more). Just never got around to sampling all the authors listed in my library, or author cloud.

Personal Ratings:
My Rating: Rating as reflected on LibraryThing
4.75-5 stars: 5 Stars*
4.25-4.74: 4.5 stars
3.75-4.24: 4 Stars
3.25-3.74: 3.5 Stars
2.75-3.24: 3 Stars

1.25-1.74: 1.5 Stars
0.75-1.24: 1 Star
0-0.74: 1/2 star

* Will probably change this to better reflect 5 stars. Maybe only rate 5 stars those that receive 5 stars, though I wish there was a way to rate a book that is rated by me 4.95 stars something other than 4.5 stars.
