About meHello! I wish I could read more.

About my libraryMy shelf does not contain everything I've ever read, but a good chunk.:D My shelf once consisted of only my favorite books, due to the 200 limit of the free account. Thanks to an amazingly generous gift from BarkingMatt, I now have a Lifetime account and unlimited additions to my shelf! My shelf now consists of books I didn't like (rated 1 or 2 stars) just to get an idea of what I don't like, but I only include books I've read all the way through. Click my favorites list to see the books I absolutely loved. I read on average 75 books a year. Happy reading!

Note on my Early Reviewer requests: I usually only hit the request button when it is a book I'm pretty sure I'll love. I already have so many books I want to read that I wouldn't request every single book just because it is free. It would take away from the other books I'd like to read. So if I request an Early Reviewer book, it is because I'd evenutally want to read it anyway, not just because it is available on Librarything. And if I have a sneaking suspicion that I won't like a book, I don't pick it up to begin with. ALSO, disregard the TBR shelf. Any giveaway book I receive will move to the top of my TBR list and will be the next book I read. thanks!
