Acerca de míMale, retired, getting increasingly frustrated that the list of books he'd like to read is increasing at a rate faster than he's able to read them.
It doesn't help that there's lots to read (and write) on LibraryThing - it's addictive and if I'm not careful it steals much too much time from my book-reading. Now that's a paradox.

For those digging around in very old threads: I used to be 'rankamateur', but I changed.
Acerca de mi bibliotecaCataloguing all my books turned up books I'd bought and forgotten to read, and books I'd read but forgotten about; so I needed to organise them (really, I should stop buying books and buy another bookcase - a big one). So I had a go at organising them. Now I can't remember where any damn thing is!
Book-buying seems to be addictive, too. I regularly say I'm not buying any more till I've cleared my 'To be read' pile, but I can't seem to help myself, somehow. And the worst of it is that there always seems to be a good reason for buying something.
Here's how I'm starring books:
Five stars - If anything happened to my copy I'd buy another one straight away. Four stars - Good book. Three stars - Middling sort of book; not one thing or the other. Two stars - Poor book. One star - Abysmal*. Half-star - How did this idiot (or psycho, or shameless liar, etc.) get into print? Put it outside and throw stones at it.* Half-stars in between are for when I'm being indecisive - this happens a lot. *I don't really expect to ever read** anything in these two categories. **If there was anything incorrect about splitting infinitives Captain Kirk would have spent his life stuck on Earth.
