The entries marked with a (*) are rereads.
In what follows:
- Exclamation mark: Definitely try to read this if you can
- 5 stars: Extraordinary
- 4 stars: Really good
- 3 stars: Good, or a fun read; if you have time and nothing else to read
- 2 stars: Ennnn.....nnnnh
- 1 star: What was the author thinking?
- N/A: Rating not applicable
Do note that my ratings are based on either how much
entertainment/escape I had reading the book or how much new stuff I
learned/noticed while reading it. This isn't a literary merit rating,
except maybe for the exclamation mark books. Which might be exclamation
mark for a wide variety of reasons as well, including "it's a classic,"
and "it details a worldview/scientific information that I think everyone
should be aware of."

I sometimes prefer to let some time elapse before I rate a book, to see
how well it "ages" in memory.
