About meTransplanted the family from south Texas to Auckland in 2003. In 2011, we moved from the city to 15 acres in rural Far North New Zealand. I read, I garden, I spend time with my dogs Thor and Zuul, and I watch some TV with DH.

2021 #ReadingGoals:
#1 - Read the "best" books by Laura Lippman and Ramsey Campbell;
#2 - Read at least 75 books from TBR (currently weighing in at 5,202 volumes)

About my libraryI am trying to list every book I remember reading, whether I owned it or not. I've also started trying to tag books with the year I read them.

My rating scale is based on a 10-point system. Every book starts at 5. I then add or subtract points given my impression of the premise, the plot, character development, my emotional involvement, and writing. Sometimes I feel like I'm suffering from ratings creep of some sort. I have to remind myself that the whole idea of constructing a TBR list from award winners and nominees is to avoid reading bad books.
