About My Library
When I rate a book it's done on a scale from 1 to 5 based on the criteria used by my favorite online group, the Book Bunch reading group at Book Chat Central (bookchatcentral.yuku.com):

5 = Fabulous, probably will be an all-time favorite
4 = Excellent, among the year's best
3 = Better than Average, a good solid read; I'd recommend to most
2 = Fair to Good Read, worth the time; would recommend to some but not all
1 = So-so, barely finished, several quibbles
1/2 = the Dorothy Parker rating: "This book should not be tossed lightly aside. It should be thrown with great force."

But I don't rate everything (particularly not mysteries) so just because I don't click any stars for a book, doesn't mean I don't like it!
