Acerca da Minha Biblioteca
I started this profile to keep track of what I own, but have decided to also use it as my primary tool for recording what I read. I do not read ARCs.

Most of the Physical Science, Engineering and Business/Management books are my husband's. Most of the Literary/SF/Fantasy/History/Other are mine.

Housekeeping Notes
Have rated books that I can remember reading. I don't post reviews (too many others do that and far better than I can) but I do make comments in the comments field -- mostly first impressions and notations to my future self (which can be spoilerish, so watch out). I enter these piecemeal, as my time is never my own and often interrupted, and I'm a deliberative thinker who needs time to digest what I read.

Century tags: Period covered in the book (not author's lifetime).

Children's books are those I think appropriate for toddlers through 1st or 2nd grade, and which are not chapter books (for the most part).

Juveniles are chapter books and those I think appropriate for roughly age 7/8+.

eReader Devices: Kindle, iPhone and iPad-mini.

Read but unowned includes books in all formats (incl audio) borrowed from a library or subscription service such as Scribd.

Ratings
★★★★★ Excellent / Sui Generis / Remains on my long-term favorites list for its category
★★★★ 1/2 Very Good / Possibly a contender for 5 stars after further reflection
★★★★ Good / Satisfies/ Resonates / or, rounded up to four because in spite of some issues, still does something quite nice
★★★ 1/2 Good, but with minor quibbles; or, not quite considered a four due to my own idiosyncratic reading tastes
★★★ My most variable rating. It can mean solid for its category; does what I expect, but doesn't stand out from the crowd; mixed/uneven -- liked some things, not others; or, rounded down to three because not quite up to my expectations for the author or category
★★ 1/2 Didn't do much for me, but I recognize it has qualities I am not appreciating
★★ Meh… too problematic
★ 1/2 Makes me groan, possibly a wall-banger
Fundamentally flawed or unforgivably formulaic; a waste of time

Acerca de Mim
Average citizen here, married with children, work full-time, try to fit in reading whenever I can. I'm a slowish reader, much more likely to sip my books than swallow them whole. No matter how rabid I think I am, my rabidity doesn't even come close to what is consumed by so many others. I like to stop and smell the roses, too. I've also discovered I'm not much of a social reader. I like discussing books with other people, but I'm easily lost in the crowd and group reads often leave me feeling dissatisfied.

Favorite Categories
I read a little in most major fiction categories. Though I read literary fiction now and again, I’m finicky and easily put off or bored by pretentious writing. These days, I’m more of a genre girl and enjoy historical, fantasy, science fiction and some romance. I also prefer old classics to newer fiction. For non-fiction, I enjoy history, bios of historical figures, travel literature, and the occasional natural history or popular science selection. Topics of special interest to me are mythology, folklore, archaeology, and anthropology, though I really haven’t scratched more than the bare surface in most of those categories. I bear no specialized knowledge of any particular subject. My guilty pleasures are adventure novels, and one of my first loves was the Gothic.
