Over mij
Retired teacher and frustrated librarian. Getting a little freakier as time goes on.

At last, a life-time goal is close to accomplishment: I want to run out of life before I run out of books.

Weaknesses:

1. Mysteries, but only certain types. I especially appreciate mysteries with a good bit of humor, those set in schools of one kind or another, and those with a limited suspect list. I also enjoy exotic settings.

2. Personal essays, particularly those about books and reading;

3. Victorian novels, with a heavy emphasis on Anthony Trollope

4. William Faulkner

5. George Orwell

6.Cheesecake

About ratings: Every author deserves an even chance at the first page, so I mentally rate all books at 2.5 stars, or dead average, before I read them.

I choose books fairly carefully (stop the unseemly laughter in the back, please), so many books get bumped up to a three; quite a few get to four stars, and a five star rating means I buttonhole strangers and say, "You must read this book!"

The occasional clinker does show up, or a book whose aesthetic, plot, or character development I can understand, but which I despise anyway.

Over mijn boekenIt's big. The physical collection is big, the kindle ection is big, and the nook collection is big--altogether, fairly huge.

I'm trying, almost always in vain, to get the TBR section smaller than the I Just Bought This on Impulse section. I like things that are new, different, or oddball. My collection is both eclectic and Byzantine.

I usually avoid romances, dystopian novels, or thrillers, but am open to persuasion.
