About my library= I can't believe anyone liked this

to = Disliked, ranging from "probably didn't finish unless compelled" to "there might have been some skimming"

to = Neutral, ranging from "I'll probably forget about it in a year" to "it passed an afternoon"

to Recommended, ranging from "perhaps just to certain readers, or mildly to a general audience" to...well..."I recommend it"

to Ranging from "Strongly recommended" to "This is going to be one of my best reads this year"

= Sentimental favorites—I really don't judge them by anything else

From TadAd

Almost all of the books I own are more than 3-stars, because I only keep the books I expect to want to re-read. My "read but don't own" collection includes my last few years of reading, a number of which have lower rankings. (The ones I start and quickly abandon are only here if they really offended me in some way, so 2 stars or less are under-represented.)

My rating system:
5: excellent
4.5: very good
4: good
3.5: pretty good
3: okay
2.5: meh
2: boring or off-putting
1.5: bad
1: terrible
0.5: unreadable
unrated: haven't read it (yet) from readinggeek451
