Over mijn bibliotheek
Almost all of the books I own are more than 3-stars, because I only keep the books I expect to want to re-read. My "read but don't own" collection includes my last few years of reading, a number of which have lower rankings. (The ones I start and quickly abandon are only here if they really offended me in some way, so 2 stars or less are under-represented.)

My rating system:
5: excellent
4.5: very good
4: good
3.5: pretty good
3: okay
2.5: meh
2: boring or off-putting
1.5: bad
1: terrible
0.5: unreadable
unrated: haven't read it (yet)
Over mij
I'm a librarian, a quilter, a teddy-bear maker, and an avid reader, mostly of genre fiction. I read about 350 books a year, counting the repeats.
