About my libraryMy library has grown substantially in the last year with probably close to 100 titles added. My shelves are overflowing and I need to purge. But as I read somewhere this summer, it's not hoarding if it's books.

I like the following book rating system that I found on jjmcgaffey's profile. Books rated prior to 2018 do not necessarily follow this system, but those rated since do.

. Unreadable (why was this garbage published?)
* Poor (it's a book. That's all you can say)
*. Not good (Doesn't quite come together into a story)
** Acceptable (There's almost a story here - hobbled by errors)
**. Readable (I can see how some might like this - not for me)
*** Enjoyable (I'm glad I read it, I might read it again)
***. Quite good (I probably will read it again)
**** Good (Well-written, will read again)
****. Very good (Highly enjoyable, will read many times)
***** Excellent (Rare top favorite, weaves into my life)
