"Praise and criticism seem to me to operate exactly on the same level. If you get a great review, it's really thrilling for about ten minutes. If you get a bad review, it's really crushing for ten minutes. either way, you go on."
Since I've now decided to do this reading blog I realized I may need some sort of rating system in order to help not only myself but others understand how I rate the books I read. I don't think I did anything fancy and it's pretty self-explanatory. However, there are times I may even deviate from the standard since reading isn't always cut and dry. I find that sometimes I may like the plot of the book but the author didn't do a good job executing or the writing was bad but the idea was good. Then again sometimes you just like a book soo much it ends up getting all the stars and vice versa. As I figure my way through doing this blog I hope to do a good job explaining why I gave a book a certain rating. I hope we're able to have a discussion to see whether you agree or disagree.
Thanks for reading.
