Acerca da Minha Biblioteca
Cataloguing all my books turned up books I'd bought and forgotten to read, and books I'd read but forgotten about; so I needed to organise them (really, I should stop buying books and buy another bookcase - a big one).
So I had a go at organising them.
Now I can't remember where any damn thing is!

Book-buying seems to be addictive, too. I regularly say I'm not buying any more till I've cleared my 'To be read' pile, but I can't seem to help myself, somehow. And the worst of it is that there always seems to be a good reason for buying something.

Here's how I'm starring books:

Five stars - If anything happened to my copy I'd buy another one straight away.
Four stars - Good book.
Three stars - Middling sort of book; not one thing or the other.
Two stars - Poor book.
One star - Abysmal*.
Half-star - How did this idiot (or psycho, or shameless liar, etc.) get into print? Put it outside and throw stones at it.*
Half-stars in between are for when I'm being indecisive - this happens a lot.
*I don't really expect to ever read** anything in these two categories.
**If there was anything incorrect about splitting infinitives Captain Kirk would have spent his life stuck on Earth.

Acerca de Mim
Male, retired, getting increasingly frustrated that the list of books he'd like to read is increasing at a rate faster than he's able to read them.

It doesn't help that there's lots to read (and write) on LibraryThing - it's addictive and if I'm not careful it steals much too much time from my book-reading. Now that's a paradox.

"Imagine what you'll know tomorrow" - 'K', Men in Black

For those digging around in very old threads: I used to be 'rankamateur', but I changed.
