About meBibliophile extraordinaire! Read widely, largely preferring a physical book rather than e-books in reading for pleasure. I read at night (in bed) and a digital device is not pleasant to manage. Besides, melatonin!

In my career (past), I did a lot of technical writing and editing. Currently I write fiction for personal pleasure. So I'm a seriously meticulous editor and evaluate books quite stringently. Having said that, some genres appeal to me so strongly that I gleefully overlook flaws!

About my libraryBookshelf philosophy: my library has fantasy, mysteries [crime and psychological], literature [like Penelope Lively], historical fiction [largely Georgette Heyer], non-fiction adventure and many reference books. I use the public library as much as possible to conserve space. I only buy something if I adore a particular book and know I will re-read it many times.

Interpreting my star ratings: 1 to 2½ stars means I didn't think the story/plot was particularly well-written or lived up its public synopsis. Three stars is 'meh' for me, generally meaning I didn't find the theme/plot very engaging. I might keep a book in the 3-star range in case a second reading improves my opinion. Four stars and up indicates that, if this genre appeals to you, be sure to give it a try. I loved it and would return to re-read it through the years. Beware that I'm often immune to its flaws if I just happen to love the writing anyway.
