About My Library
Review rankings (applicable for fiction and narrative nonfiction, only)
5 – You’re missing something in your life if you don’t read this (it’s a personal favorite as well as being a necessary insight into the human condition).
4.5 – It’s a personal favorite, but others may live happily having never read it.
4 – I love it, but it’s ok if I don’t read it again,
3.5 – A fun read, but nothing outstanding (often lovely writing with poor plot or vice versa).
3 – A decent read that I could have lived with or without.
2.5 – Disappointing.
2 – I want my time back.
1.5 – What the hell is this sh*t?
1 – A publisher somewhere needs to get fired for “okaying” this crap.
.5 – Insulting (to the sense intelligence, demographics, etc.), horribly written, and meaningless

My library is composed solely of books that I own. Virtually all of them are tangible books (less than ten ebooks).

The vast majority of the books that I own came from book sale-ing (sale-ing needs to be added to the dictionary; there is a big difference between book shopping and book sale-ing. It'd also be useful for tag sale-ing), used book stores, tag sales, Scholastic warehouse sales, used Amazon books, required textbooks from eFollet and a very few MUST-HAVE-NOWs that I got at B&N.

The way I get my books is the main reason behind my aversion to ebooks; why spend $12.99 on a virtual copy of Diary of a Wimpy Kid when I can get a real one at a book sale for 50 cents?

Other reasons I don't care for ebooks:

I hate the feel of ebook readers.

It is extremely difficult to (legally) lend or sell ebooks that you no longer want unless you are an institution of some kind that has been authorized to do so, i.e. libraries, colleges, etc. (ReDigi v EMI Capitol Records).

There have been instances of ebook distributors remotely destroying/repossessing ebooks because of legal issues that they screwed up (such as properly securing rights).

I'm sorry, but once you buy something, it is yours to lend or sell as you please (First-Sale Doctrine) and a business should have no right to repossess something you paid for because THEY made an unlawful mistake.
About Me

There's very little I won't read, though I definitely lean towards YA, fantasy, mythology, classics and historical fiction (not the sexual kind - if I want poorly written smut, I'll just read fanfiction for free).
