Über meine Bibliothek

Waiting for the moment when my subconscious acknowledges the fact that there is no more room for more books and I actually stop accumulating them. (That may never happen)

About my ratings: I seldom buy a book I haven't already read, and want to read again, so my ratings tend to be high. Lower ratings are probably books I got from the library and read, or they were books that were given to me. I am also generous. If the book truly entertained me and/or gave something important to me and the way I think it has a four or five. If it was so-so it's a 3 to 4 (I do actually own those, too) and if it was pretty bad it's a 2 and if I hated it is a 1 (so far there's only one of those!)
