About My Library
I am blessed with owning more books than I can read and cursed with a selective memory that tends to forget anything that does not rise above average (not there is anything wrong with average). I guess this is a blessing in a way as well, as whole chunks of my library become relatively new to me as the years pass. It makes rating books a bit challenging though.

I have precious few bad books to rate, not because I manage to avoid stinkers, but because they tend to stay with me even less then the mediocre books do. I must not have the brain space nor the emotional fortitude to catalog crap. Still, a few stand out and I will post those.

Happy reading everybody. May the next book you pick up be just what you need just when you needed it.
About Me
Hello. I am an avid reader, but that probably goes without saying. My roots lie in science fiction and fantasy, but now I haunt bookstores looking for that 'perfect' story regardless of genre. My current tastes lie towards the slightly strange, reality askewed, the modern fairy tale if you will. Once, in my youth while working at one of the major bookstore giants I imagined that the world was full of great stories, thousands of them; filling the shelves to near bursting, where for a few dollars I would be dropped into a tale that I would feel in my marrow. Sadly I think we all know how this particular story ends. Mediocrity holds the day, greatness dwells in the shadows and if one is not careful, a sort of jaded bitterness can set in. That's why this site is so great. Here like is drawn to like and one can explore freely without feeling cheated. Simply wonderful.
