About my libraryBillie Aul & Tim Smith's books. Originally this was just our science fiction, but we've added everything, because, in the end, all our books are related to each other. We're still working on adding some of the oddball collections. Billie is also trying to track her lifelong reading by entering the contents of various older systems.

Collections:

Your library: The physical books in our house
GLBT: Books of GLBT interest that are physically in the house
Linguistics: The books Tim considers part of his linguistic hobby collection. The books are physically in the house.
Analytics: short stories, essays, plays etc inside anthologies, collections and magazines so they can be reviewed, rated and tracked separately. Not necessarily in the house (though most of the sf magazines are neatly arranged in chronological order behind the fiction books -- and we wonder why the house has structural problems)
All the others: Various obsessive attempts by Billie to keep track of EVERYTHING.

Our rating system: (Most of the ratings are Billie's) The half stars are when we disagree.

* - no one should have to read this book
** - this book has minor redeeming features such as being an author's early work, having some useful information, or being funny
*** - we enjoyed it while we were reading it, but we're not planning to read it again (or we enjoyed it when we were twelve, but it didn't stand up to our adult expectations)
**** - it's good. Given world enough and time, we would probably read it again
***** - it changed our life or it changed our thinking or we loved it so much we'll definitely try to read it again

We often use "publication date" for the date the work was originally published, not for the date the volume we own was published.
