About My Library
I'm gradually adding books to my LT library as I read them. I've also kept a list of books read for about the last 10 years, including a short synopsis of each, and I'm adding those as I have time. Once those are added, I'll be racking my brain to go back even further in time.

Each book is rated according to how I felt at the time I finished reading it. Here’s what my ratings mean to me:

- Five stars - Exceptional, very moving, this will stay with me for a long time
- Four stars - Excellent read, never lost interest
- Three stars - OK for the most part
- Two stars - For one reason or another it didn't hold my interest.
- One star - Not for me, I couldn’t finish it.
