About My Library
This listing includes all books either owned or borrowed; since joining LT Oct.'07 - (or owned but weeded). All are finally tagged (however roughly). The "collections" section [recently discovered] is not nearly finished. I do enjoy well-written fiction, but with all the exciting things happening and being discovered in the world - my reading is heavily on the side of non-fiction. Especially psychology, brain-research, & biography.
Books I've read have been rated. Except for the older books, those with no stars are, alas, on the many tbr shelves.

* - No one should have to read this book. ( I rarely finish a "one star" book)
** - This book has minor redeeming features such as being an author's early work, having some useful information, or being funny. Potboiler.
*** - Run of the mill. Not quite a potboiler. It held some fascinating element; or I was too tired to be challenged by a good book.
**** - It's very good. Sometimes even a favorite.
***** - It changed my life or it changed my thinking or it deeply touched my heart or it bowled me over with the excellence of the writing.
About Me
Retired librarian, but seem to be busier than ever. Plus the problem of "So Many Books, So Little Time" -- anyone got any good tips as to how to balance reading time among: (1) Enews (2) magazines (3) books --(a) fiction (b) non-fiction ?
Location
Kanata, Ontario, Canada (home of the Ottawa Senators)
