Book Blogger Hop and Follow Me Friday

Book Blogger Hop

The Hop is Hosted By Jennifer @ Crazy For Books.

Each week she poses a get to know each other better question. This week's question is: Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it and why?

Right now I'm using stars, hopefully that will change if I can manage to save up for a pretty new template.

1 Star: Not worth the time to read it.

2 Stars: Not terrible but not good either

3 Stars: A good read

4 Stars: A great book that I would recommend to a friend

5 Stars: A keeper shelf book

I use a rating system because I think it is necessary. Some books are better than others. I'm just sharing my opinion, and yes I have used the 1 star rating. Just remember, just because I gave something a low rating doesn't mean you will.

Visiting from the HOP! I like your blog design - but good luck with saving money for a new one. I wouldn't even know where to find someone to do the design.

I hope you will visit one or both of my blogs: LibrarysCat or Holocaust Resources for Children!!

Have a great weekend!
