About my libraryI like a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books, with a leaning towards history and politics. I organise by self explanatory categories.

My Rating System...

0 - 0.5 Truly dreadful, badly written / utterly uninteresting.
1 - 1.5 Uninteresting.
2 - Readable, but not really worth bothering; if non-fiction, fine for factual reference, but dull to read cover to cover.
2.5 - Average; Readable, just interesting enough to keep you reading.
3 - Reasonably good, entertaining, worth reading once, but not something to return to.
3.5 - Good, well above average, interesting.
4 - Very good, compelling read, interesting and well written.
4.5 - Truly absorbing, fascinating, with that added something.
5 - A book of rare brilliance.
