About My Library
Regarding My Star Ratings:
No stars means I haven't read it or read it too long ago to remember how good or bad it is.
Half a star means, "I must be keeping this for sentimental reasons 'cause I hate reading it." Just a bad book.
1 star means, "I didn't like it."
2 stars mean, "I'm lukewarm about it" and found it adequate, perhaps with significant flaws but some redeeming aspects.
3 stars mean, "I liked it" and found it a solid read. A good book.
4 stars mean, "I really liked it a lot" and recommend it. A very good book.
5 stars mean, "I love it!" It's truly excellent and reached me in an extraordinary way.
About Me
I am a book lover in a family of book lovers. We have long since filled all our bookshelves, added more, and still have stacks of books that haven't found shelf space.
