About meI'm 36 years old and I live in the Denver metro area. I'm addicted to books, television, movies, skiing, and of course Jayhawk basketball - my undergrad alma mater.

About my libraryI have this problem of buying books faster than I can read them. So if it's not rated I haven't read it, yet. Hopefully I'll get to them shortly. I've read more book then I have listed, but I only want to list books I own in 'My Library'. Of course, some of the books would not be in my library were I the same person, years ago, as I am now. *cough* Terry Brooks, Star Wars *cough* Feel free to leave comments or make recommendations.

If you're going to peruse my library, display the 'comments' section for some mini-reviews. (it's still a work in progress - hopefully I'll have something written for all my books soon).

I'm pretty tough rating my books (not every book is 5* - although it seems some people on this site don't agree).

0.5* - Stay away!
1.0* - Unpleasant overall.
1.5* - The book has something good, but definitely not recommended.
2.0* - Could have been worse, but also could have been much better.
2.5* - Only recommended if you're a big fan of the author.
3.0* - Decent read, if you're a fan of its genre.
3.5* - Recommended for fans of its genre.
4.0* - Darn good book.
4.5* - A really great book.
5.0* - Read it. Now.

Actually REG, I think I'm done with the Black Sun's Daughter for now. Just lost interest I guess. I might pick up Killing Rites later.
Hey REG. I just finished a book called God's War by Kameron Hurley and enjoyed it quite a bit. It reminds me a lot of Warren Hammond's Kop books so I think you might like it.
There's probably enough shame to go around. I've only just started reading Wolfsangel for excample. There's just too many books to read!
Dude, you still haven't read Bacigalupi yet? Shame on you. :P
The reviews that are posted entirely on Librarything were mostly written in the period between BSC and Random Comments. I later added those to Random Comments and added a link but since the entire text is also visible here there really isn't much incentive to have a look at the blog. Once I started Random Comments I changed strategy and I do get a few referrals. I think I'll try the quote from the review approach for a bit and see how that goes.

With Reynolds you can go either way. Chasm City is his second novel and generally you can't go wrong with reading stuff in publication order. It is a standalone however, so I chose to finish the trilogy first, since I was already committed to that. For me that order works best because the books got progressively better in my opinion. I have also seen people who like Reynolds' space opera approach a lot and were disappointed by Chasm City because isn't the sprawling tale the trilogy offers.

I guess it is a matter of taste but I would say finish the trilogy first.
I'm going to have to experiment with those links a bit. Librarything referrals to the blog don't justify the effort of linking those reviews up at the moment so I guess a lot of people agree with you ;)
You should probably move some of those comments to the review column. Quite a lot of it is more informative than what some people think passes for a review ;)

I agree with out on Lord Foul's Bane. I gave it a good go but I really could not finish it. Maybe I'll give it another try sometime.
Hi, I like the way you use your comments field. I just review all of the new books I read or the ones in my collection that I reread. Good looking catalog.

Always nice to find other fans of Cornwell and Martin. I'm currently finishing up the Saxon Chronicles. Still have Lords of the North and Sword Song to read. What's your favorite series by Cornwell? I also still have A Feast for Crows left to read before Dance with Dragons comes out. How did you like Feast for Crows compared to the other three?

Shadow Of The Wind is great and I immediately looked for more of Zafon's stuff translated into English but
had no luck. It seems like the Jayhawks are in a rebuilding year (I couldn't believe Dorrell Arthur slid in the draft that far). I have similar tastes to you it seems and I believe George R.R. Martin should send some sort of financial restitution to his fans for making them wait this long!
I really enjoyed your comments! Stumbled upon your library via "Members with your books" list. Oh, and I hated "Lord Foul's Bane" too. :) Could never understand why people thought it was great.
