About my libraryI don't own all the books in my library - I'm merely cataloguing them as I read them. Comments are brief "notes to self" on my main impressions after reading, and are not intended to be taken as reviews*. If any of my comments do give you food for thought, or put you onto a book, I'd love to know. I welcome any feedback but I can't really apologise for personal taste.

There are plenty of books in my library that have been recommended by friends and family - when I say 'recommended', I mean thrust on me with the insistence that I will love them - that are not my usual cup of tea. I'll give anything a go but this means that my library is as much a mix of other people's tastes as my own.

5 stars - Loved and couldn't find fault
4 stars - Loved, but found flaws
3 stars - Enjoyed, but wouldn't read again
2 stars - Struggled with but got something out of it
1 star - Hated
(can't be bothered with half stars).

*I've decided to add some comments as reviews where the book has 10 or less, just to get the ball rolling.
