Books!

Welcome to my book page! I love to read, as a student, I don't always have time and I haven't read as much as I'd have liked to in the past few years. I'm a fast reader but my roadblocks are time and accessibility of books, I never seem to have a new book handy when I need it! As you can see, 2016 was skipped because I took that year to reread old favorites.
Additionally, I'm going to expand the rating system. There will still be the same 5 categories but each category will now have a numerical range, because some "great" books are "greater" than others! It will be a long process to rate all of the existing books I have on here but little by littler, I'll get it done. Keep checking in to see the progress!

Rating System:
Great 8-10
Good 6-8
Ok 4-6
Bad 2-4
Terrible 0-2
