About meI will use this space for some of my most recent favorite quotes.

From Elisabeth Elliot's Twelve Baskets of Crumbs
"A reader understands what he reads in terms of what he is. As a Christian reader, I bring to bear on the book I am reading the light of my faith."

"All the books we own, both read and unread, are the fullest expression of self we have at our disposal. ... But with each passing year, and with each whimsical purchase, our libraries become more and more able to articulate who we are, whether we read the books or not."
-Nick Hornby

About my libraryThese are books I've read. I don't necessarily own them all at the moment, because I only keep books I will want to read again, refer to or possibly loan to others.

A word about my star rating system:
* - I hated it, probably didn't finish it and either threw it out or got rid of it.
** - I didn't like it much, but saw that possibly someone else might like it.
*** - I'm glad to have read it, I either learned something from it or was amused by it, but probably won't ever read it again.
**** - I really liked it and would recommend it to others to read, will probably be keeping it to loan out, etc.
***** - I love it, will reread it and keep it on my shelves to visit with like a dear friend.

Inspired by another LT user (gilroy), I've come up with my tagging pattern:
Broad Catagory, genre, place, time, topics, series/detective, if not read/when read
Now, when I will find the time to go through and fix my library, is another question.

I've started putting some of my TBR books in, but not very enthusiastically.

Books I'm reading now:
This space is for images, but my life isn't allowing me the leisure to diddle with it right now. I try to keep the "currently reading" section current.

Very helpful thread about doing special things in your posts.
