Sobre mimA touch of gray and a garden that needs weeding. And an LT library that needs updating - I'm a few dozen books behind!

My rating system, used in several threads:
1 - The author ought to be ashamed of him(her)self(C.S. Lewis' The Last Battle)
2 - A bad book that can and should be ignored (Atwood's The Edible Woman)
3 - Written well enough, but why? (Dan Brown's DaVinci Code - and, yes, we all know why $$$)
4 - Neither memorable nor a waste of time (Murakami's After Dark)
5 - Well written, fun, not very filling and easily forgotten (Gabriel Garcia Marquez's My Melancholy Whore)
6 - A solid, good book, worth reading (most of Hemingway or Atwood falls here)
7 - A book that reaches deep inside you and twists something (average Faulkner)
8 - Memorable and moving with a lasting impact on my life (Mahfouz, Katherine Anne Porter, Joyce). Everyone around me knows I like these books.
9 - Wow! Books I feel compelled to force on other people. (Thomas Mann's Transposed Heads - which you really, really need to read!! Now! Go, order it!)
10 - Moby Dick

Sobre a minha bibliotecaMany of our books are old, interesting editions. We hope the children catch the contagion.

A few underappreciated little gems are identified as, well, "underappreciated little gems". If you must peak at one thing in my library, there it is.

I once opened a newly purchased, dusty, 100-year old history book to find a well-preserved four leaf clover pressed inside. I've had better luck on opening other books.

Below is map showing countries from which I have read at least some literature. You can see other people's maps on a thread in the "Reading Globally - Fiction" group. I need to find some good books to read from Africa, Central Asia, Southeast Asia, and the southern Slavic countries.

Suggestions are always welcome.
