- About My Library
5 stars: A very special book; one that I can imagine happily re-reading many times.
4 stars: A fine book; one that I would recommend to most readers.
3 stars: A good book; perhaps not for everyone, but recommendable to those who enjoy the genre/author/style.
2 stars: Not for me, but not without merit; I might not recommend it, but I wouldn't necessarily try to talk you out of reading if you were drawn to it.
1 star: A bad book; one that I would not recommend to any one. Why did I even finish this mess?
I don't give 0-star ratings, so an unstarred book is either something from my TBR lists, something that I haven't read recently enough to give an accurate rating, or something to which ratings seem inapplicable -- a reference book, perhaps.
