About My Library
My library is all over the place: highbrow to low, history to philosophy to fiction and mystery.

I also tend towards tough reviews: good, readable books will typically rank 3 stars. Under 3 stars I start to wonder why I'm reading it; over 3 stars and the book deserves attention and commentary.

As of Summer 2008, I'm also trying to capture *where* I purchased a book, if it's some place away from home and/or an interesting bookstore that deserves to be acknowledged.
