Books I've Read

I love to read, I read nearly everything I can get my hands on. I really need a way to keep track of what I've read so I know what I haven't read. Here's the list of my reads as much for myself as for you. You can usually tell if I like an author by how many books I have read by that author. If they have written many books and I've only read one - I wasn't impressed - if I've read them all - then I liked the author - if I've read some I'm probably still reading my way through - or sometimes I've lost interest in the venue for a while and will come back to it later.

Fifty Page Rule

If I am unable to get interested in a book in 50 pages it goes into the 50 page rule pile and I give myself permission to drop the book and move on to something more interesting. This doesn't happen very often, but it does happen.
