About me"I seem to wander around the world ... accumulating material for future nostalgias." - Vikram Seth

And something I need to remember: "Buying books would be a good thing if one could also buy the time to read them in; but as a rule the purchase of books is mistaken for the appropriation of their contents." — Arthur Schopenhauer

My thread for 2012 is here.

I am using my wiki to keep quotations and poems which I like. Also a short sample quote from each book that I have read.

About my libraryI started using Bookmooch as a way of noting down all the books I read in a year. Then it got addictive... first I started adding books in my permanent collection (I tend to give books away, unless I really like them); then books on my wishlist; and then books that I could remember reading, but have given away. On the positive side, I can't think of any more categories of books which I could add (and if you can, please don't tell me!)

My rating system:

5* or 4*, would happily recommend
3* and 2.5, I enjoyed - wouldn't recommend but wouldn't warn you off either
2*, I didn't think much of, definitely wouldn't read again
1*, hated
