About My Library
Books I own (shelf or Kindle), books I used to own but gave away, books I'd like to own.
Most tags are self-explanatory. "Trash" and "fluff" are not insults. "Overrated" is.
My rating system:
5 stars - my favorites. Books I love, books I'd rescue from a burning building, books I read and re-read.
4 stars - really like this book. I've probably read it more than once, or intend to read it again.
3 stars - I like it. It's a good book, or a useful book (especially bio texts).
2 stars - meh - probably purchased before the library rule took effect.
1 star - Selling these! Thank heavens for Bull Moose.

Star ratings are based entirely on how much I enjoyed the book. If this means that Ulysses only has a half a star higher rating than An Assembly Such As This, so be it.

About Me
After many years of being a research scientist, I have moved away from the bench and academia. Currently, I am a medical writer based in Chicago, IL. I usually have more than one book going at a time due to my short attention span. Most of my reading is literary fiction or the classics, with generous helpings of Jasper Fforde and trashy historical fiction to lighten things up. I'm trying to increase the amount of nonfiction, fiction from other countries, and fiction by people of color.

All-time favorite books:
Jane Eyre
Lolita
Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy
The Sound and the Fury
Pride and Prejudice
