Follow Friday #3 and Book Blogger Hop



It's Friday and you know what that means its time to have a Hoppin Good Time finding some great new blogs. Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by parajunkee. Have a look around and be sure and leave a comment so I can visit your blog.

Book Blogger Hop

The question this week is do you use a rating system when you review books ,and if so why?
 Sometimes I do use a rating system the scale going from one to five with a five being a must read. I only do it if the mood strikes me.

  1. I'm just hopping through. I'm an old follower. I always use a system. For me it helps me think better.

    Happy reading!

  9. Hi Brenda,

    I use a rating system of 1 - 10 as I always feel that 1 - 5 isn't descriptive enough. I feel it helps me to think about what I really enjoyed (or didn't enjoy) about the book and to compare it to others I've read with similar ratings.

    Thanks for following me! :)

  27. New follower from Boost My Blog Friday.

    Love your background!

    I should probably use a rating system for books. After a while I actually forget how I felt about some of them. Unless they were REALLY bad. : /
