Über michRetired from research and embracing all the pursuits that took a backseat to the Daily Grind. Thus, reading for pure pleasure ~~

* Fiction ~ mysteries, fantasy, historical fiction
* Non-fiction ~ Biographies, memoirs, intrepid female explorers in the 1800's - early 1900's
* Literary fiction ~ Penelope Lively, Anne Tyler, Anita Brookner are favourites.

Occasionally I receive advance book copies from NetGallery

Über meine BibliothekBookshelf philosophy:
* Keep only that which I will re-read or use for reference
* Buy the book only if I adore it and know I will re-read it many times.

Interpreting my star ratings:
I have snagged this rating system from Lucy (sibylline).
So succinct and exactly how I feel these days for rating books-read.

Less than ~ Life is too short
~ Flawed but readable.
~ Very readable. Solid workmanship. Thin in some aspects.
~ Very good indeed. Flashes of brilliance, engaging content, characters, themes developed. Recommended
~ Highly recommended
~ I loved it, either because it is an inspired or profound work or I. Could. Not. Put. It. Down.
