About My Library
Aside from select books I'd like to keep in hard copy, and my collection of knitting books, I've switched almost entirely to ebooks. I also read audiobooks regularly.

I've done my best to recreate a list of every book I've read from middle school onward, and I've tracked all of my reading since 2009.

My ratings:
* : would recommend against it; couldn't finish it; strongly disliked
** : wouldn't recommend it; didn't really like it; would not keep the printbook
*** : might recommend it; liked it moderately; would not keep the printbook
**** : would definitely recommend it; might keep the printbook
*****: would definitely recommend it; would definitely keep the printbook; might re-read it (for non-fiction: will probably refer back to it later, probably kept highlights in the ebook)
About Me
Reader, knitter, scientist, data wrangler.

My preferred fiction genres are science fiction, fantasy, historical fiction, romance, and the occasional literary fiction. For non-fiction I prefer narrative deep dives on science, culture, and history.

When I was in elementary school, my parents resorted to taking away my bedside lamp so that I'd stop staying up all night reading. It didn't work.
