About My Library
My library is primarily non-fiction, historical fiction, fantasy and romance with some crime/mystery and young adult. I buy as many books as possible and I keep as many as I can fit on my shelves. If I find an author I like I'll often read as much of their work as I can get my hands on.

Notes on my collections:
- My Library Collection lists the books I own.
- The To Read Collection is my Mount TBR and all books are from my Library Collection.
- My Wishlist Collection has the books that I intend to buy at some point.

My rating system is:

* Didn't like it.
** Didn't particularly like it, but has some good features.
*** Average. In many cases 'brain candy' reads.
**** Very good, I just have a couple of small quibbles.
***** Excellent. Loved it.

A book with no rating is probably a book I read awhile back and can't remember well enough to rate. A one star rating is the lowest meaningful rating.
