About meEnglish teacher, occasional traveler, avid reader, amateur chef, aspiring writer.

About my libraryI'm working on a long-term project to read a book from every country in the world. I keep a thread documenting my global reading here in the Reading Globally group.

I review every book I add to my library because it helps me remember them. Anything not reviewed has not yet been read. Here is a guide to my rating system:

5 stars -- superb. I am unable to criticize this work and do not doubt that I will think of it many times in the future.

4.5 stars -- a thoroughly satisfying work that will stick with me for a long time, but some imperfections in writing prevent me from giving it a full five stars.

4 stars -- a solid book. It is well-written and interesting, but not likely to be an influence on me.

3.5 stars -- a good book, but some problems with writing prevented me from enjoying it fully.

3 stars -- a mediocre read that I somewhat enjoyed but would not likely recommend to others.

less than three stars -- I regret reading this work and would not recommend it to others.
