Over mijn bibliotheek
This is (or will be, when I finish adding books) the union of what I own with what I've read since 1994 or so. Some of what I've returned to libraries, sold, given away, etc., is marked as such.

Rating is sporadic and approximate. Roughly: 5 = "personal favorite; you must read this, at least if you're me"; 4 = very good (either for entertainment or instruction). 3.5 = good but not very good. 3 = OK, not painful. 2 = bad. 1 = horrible.

Reviews are links to my website.

Tagging is sporadic, not particularly consistent, and opinionated.

Reading and purchase dates are only sporadically entered. Many are approximate, because I only recorded month or academic year. (Yes, it's probably OCD-spectrum to record the date in the first place.)
