About meBooks are unconvertible assets to be passed on only to those who possess them already (Anthony Powell)

About my libraryMy 'Collections' indicate both the type of the book and where it can be found in my library.
English | Hardcover | Paperback | Audiobooks | Digital | Vintage | Naval Fiction
French | Hardcover | Poche | Digital | San Antonio | Tout Simenon
Dutch | (translated) | Bob Evers | Havank
For history, biographies, historical novels and naval history I add the historical date under private comments. Books can be sorted that way.

A word about my ratings.

***** Stupendous read. Have read it and/or will re-read it (again) and strongly recommend it. Goes on my favourites shelf and author on favourite author status.

****' Loved it. Will re-read and recommend it, candidate for my favourites shelf.

**** Great read. Really enjoyed it. Will follow-up on author or series. Might reread.

***' Fun to read. Passed the time. Will probably not re-read, nor recommend.

*** Fair to read. May have some flaws but I can over look them. Will not reread, nor recommend.

** Has major flaws which cannot be overlooked.

* Did not finish it.

With my library overflowing a number of years ago I got in the habit of donating the * and ** to Oxfam where maybe someone else would better appreciate them.
