Über michI am an obsessive bibliophile, and my tastes are varied and eclectic. I've been addicted to reading since I was 3 years old...so over 30 years now, and my reading habits tend to be cyclical. When I'm in a reading frenzy, I'll read 15+ books per month, but unfortunately these frenzies are often followed by dry spells that could last months, or even years at a time. LibraryThing has helped even out these cycles, but due to giving birth to TWINS recently, I'm understandably in another reading dry spell.

I most enjoy reading contemporary fiction and memoirs, but I'll give anything a try if it seems interesting. I add classics and history into the mix as much as possible, because they're "good for me." :)

NOTE: I will only add you as a friend if I actually know you - sorry, nothing personal. Feel free to use the other features (interesting libraries, private watch list) to track my library.

Über meine BibliothekMy library is divided into 3 main sections: Read, To Read, and Currently Reading. My "To Read" section is updated, but my "Read" section is mostly limited to the books I still own, and I've included a few of my childhood favorites as well. I'm now better at keeping track of my reading adventures, so the recent months are accurate.

The newest additions have short reviews and ratings included, and I hope to continue this practice, as it helps me remember the stories and characters a bit better. I do not plan to review/rate books from the past unless I read them again, refreshing my memory of them.

My Rating System
5 Stars: Love, love, love it. Must buy it now.
4 1/2 Stars: Pretty darn close to 5 stars, but not quite.
4 Stars: Enjoyed it. Would like to read more by the author.
3 1/2 Stars: Pretty good. Sometimes used for great lit that I didn't love.
3 Stars: Didn't love it or hate it. Might consider reading more by the author.
2 1/2 Stars: Crappy, with one or two redeeming qualities.
2 Stars: Dislike the book. Probably won't read more.
1 Star: Hate it. Struggled to finish. (haven't used this before)

The "On Deck" section is made up of books that I've checked out from the library, and as such, are next on my reading list.

I include several literary awards as tags: ABA, Booker, NatBookAwd, Newbery, Orange, PEN/Faulkner, Pulitzer. I use the award tags for the winners as well as the finalists. I also include several lists in my tags: 1001, Ballantine, Book Club Faves, Book Lust, Oprah, NatGeo, Parker, Today Show - these come from books about books, reading lists, and clubs.

The books I own are indicated by the "Own It" tag. I am not a book collector, and I no longer buy books, because I've been reading them so darn quickly...it ends up being a huge expense. I am addicted to the library though, but at least it's free! :)

I'm always open to suggestions and recommendations, so keep them coming!
