À propos de ma bibliothèqueThese are the books I'll admit to reading and wanting to read. A reflection of my reading life, but I imagine it will be challenging to make it accurate. These are the books that are in my consciousness, somewhere. The ones I want to read but haven't yet is telling, too. I don't own all of them; I own a good number of them. The children's books included are those that were special to me as a child (or that I still have around), excepting of course Lemony Snicket and Harry Potter. If you have good references for fiction writing or really good mysteries (a la Eliz. George, Carol O'Connell, Minette Walters...), please leave me a note.

Rating System:
Every book gets at least one star for having been written and published. That's more than I've yet been able to accomplish. If there are no stars, either I've not read it or I haven't gotten around to rating it or I've read it but don't remember it well enough to rate it. The nonfiction books are rated a little differently. While quality of writing is considered, more weight is assigned to usefulness or coverage of the topic.

1/2 of a * - I'm insulting the book and the author.
* - Not sure why I'm admitting to reading it, but there it is.
* 1/2 - If I ever have occasion to use this one, then maybe I will know what it signifies.
** - Not so good, but there may be merit somewhere: storytelling, plot, social impact.... Or, it might be well written, but really boring or disappointing in some way. Maybe it didn't compel me to finish it. Definitely would not recommend it to anyone.
** 1/2 - I wanted to like it. I almost liked it. But I didn't like it.
*** - Either it's a really enjoyable read despite lack of literary merit, or it's quite well done despite not being very interesting. Or maybe it just did a lot of things pretty well, but nothing exceptional. Happy to include it in my library.
*** 1/2 - A bit better than average, but not quite outstanding, or details are fuzzy but I remember that I thought it was outstanding at the time.
**** - Outstanding. Personally significant. Remembered in detail years later. Feel connection upon seeing or hearing the title.
**** 1/2 - Almost perfect.
***** - The reason I read and/or the reason I write.
