About My Library
The books in the "Your Library" collection are books I currently own which are on my shelves. Within this collection, those tagged TBR are those I have yet to read.

All other Collections are books I do not own. The collection "Borrowed Books and No Longer Have" are books I've read that I once owned and gave away, or that I got from the library. All other collections are books I'm interested in to one degree or the other, many of which are LT recommendations. The books in the "Look For Now" category are the books currently at the top of the wish list.

When I star books, 3 stars means a very good book, one that I would have no hesitation in recommending, especially if you are interested in the genre or subject of the book. 3 1/2 stars is a very good book, one that I especially liked and connected with. 4 stars is an excellent book, standing out above most other books, a book which will stay with me a long time and which I may want to reread. A 4 1/2 star book is a near perfect book, which will probably be around for a long time. A 5 star book is a book I expect to be around for all time.

A 2 1/2 star book can be either a perfectly good book which did not resonate with me, or a book with minor flaws. 2 stars is a book I did not like, or which had major flaws. 1 1/2 stars means you are taking a big chance if you read that book. 1 or 1/2 means definitely do not bother reading the book.
