About my libraryI read at a rough ratio of 2/3rds nonfiction to 1/3rd fiction. I read nonfiction to learn about topics that pique my interest and fiction for plotting.

Here is my rough book rating system: (10 stars from can make the conversion to a 5 star system)

10 An exceptionally good book
9 Super, couldn't put it down
8 Very good
7 Good
6 Enjoyed parts of it
5 I didn't particularly like it or dislike it; mixed or no real interest
4 An "okay" book, possibly draggy or too light, not my thing
3 Poor; lost interest - a chore, possibly put it down
2 Awful - quite possibly didn't finish
1 Horrible, didn't finish it, would advise others to avoid it.
