I am on a mission to read all the Newbery Medal winners (92/96 read).
Almost all of the books on my bookshelf are books that I have read, have attempted to read, or will read (with the exception of a few that were just passing through). As a general rule, I do not register my PC books; however, you will see a couple registered when I have loaned them to people or started a bookring.
MY BOOK RATING SYSTEM (borrowed from florafloraflora and tweaked by me)
10: Excellent - loved it, loved it, loved it!
9: Great book - just a nitpick stands between it and a 10
8: Good, solid book, worth rereading
7: Good book, but I wouldn't read it again
6: Decent, but only enjoyed it somewhat
5: Only OK. Barely worth reading, but I did finish it.
4: Only OK and I didn't finish it.
2-3: I didn't like it and didn't finish reading it.
1: I couldn't get past more than a few pages.
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines... Explore. Dream. Discover." ~ Mark Twain
