About My Library
In an effort to conserve space and be a greener citizen, I'm swapping or otherwise donating my books. This has been very, very difficult for me. Library Thing allows me to continue to "own" my books even after they are no longer physically in my possession. It has made it a little easier.

I rate a book the number of stars I think it deserves within its peer group. So, for example, a rating for a mystery is my opinion of that book compared to other mysteries I've read rather than compared to every book I've read. In addition, ratings reflect how I felt about the book when I read it and may or (more likely on some of the older ones) may not reflect my current opinion.

Anything I've read so long ago that I remember it but not well is dated with my anniversary 10/06/1996. Anything I've read recently is dated with my son's birthday 10/23/2005. Anything I've read this year but before I joined LT is dated 01/22/2007. Books I haven't read and don't intend to read anytime soon are dated with my 17th birthday 01/22/1984.

About Me
The top ten books as of February 2010 that hit me like a shot of adrenaline and have stayed with me for years:

1. The Women's Room by Marilyn French
2. The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley
3. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
4. The Accidental Tourist by Anne Tyler
5. The Mysteries of Pittsburgh by Michael Chabon
6. The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
7. Bastard Out of Carolina by Dorothy Allison
8. Bad Behavior by Mary Gaitskill
9. Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice
10. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman would have made the list but I disqualified it since it is a novella.
