About My Library

Most of the books in my catalogue are in my possession, but some (returned library books, books loaned to me and returned, wishlist books, etc) are not.

My Collections:

5-Star Reads: Books I rated either 4.5 or 5 stars when I read them. A small fraction of what I've read, but still a pretty big collection. Roughly speaking the top ten percent of books I've read, in terms of my enjoyment of them. My "Favorites" collection is more like the top one percent.

Yearly Top-Five Reads Starting in 2010, I started listing my favorite first-time reads of the year in my year-end sum-up post. This collection lists all those books. Some overlap with "5-Star Reads," but ultimately a very different list. These are those reads that stood out to me (usually) months after the fact, and often they aren't books I gave 4.5 or 5 stars when I'd first finished reading them.

Wishlist: Where I put books I'd like to read. I remove books from this collection once I've acquired or read them.

My Rating System:

I rate based on my subjective reading experience, not based on any attempt to make an objective statement about the quality of the book. Some books I think are important and valuable may get a low rating from me because I didn't *enjoy* them. Some books I think are not paragons of style or craft or what-have-you may get a high rating because I had a fantastic time reading them.


*: A truly wretched time. I left.

**: Awful. I stayed because I had to.

**1/2: Kind of awful but something made me stick around.

***: It was... fine.

***1/2: It was fine, with a spark of enthusiasm.

****: A nice time. I'm glad I went.

****1/2: Just a really good time.

*****: I'm bouncing with glee. I could not have had a better time.
