- Book Rating and Rating Scale: Here is some quick background on my book reviews. I track all the books I read and rank them 1-5 with mid range points in between. And while I decry the use of any rating scale for books, sites such as Goodreads and Amazon only allow rated reviews to be posts. So until they accept non rated reviews, I will continue that unfortunate format.
Here is the general ratings scale used:
5 – Outstanding, loved it on many levels, a comfort read
4 – Excellent book, I really enjoyed it and would read it again
3 – Nice read, average -won’t read it again
2 -While the book failed, there were some redeeming features
1 – No Redeeming Feature Whatsoever-I Have Never Given Out a 1, Can A Book be this Dreadful?
I am always willing to consider requests for reviews, so feel free to get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org
