A friend and reader recently suggested that I offer a rating system with my posts. I do try to give a clue in the last paragraph about how I feel about the book, but rating is tricky. I think most books are likeable – and someone will like a book – whether or not I do. Other books no one will like – even if I rave over it.
✓✓✓✓✓ – Don’t miss it! Hope you like it as much as I did.
✓✓✓✓ – You should read it (my opinion anyway)
✓✓✓ – Worth a try – at least to the first 50 pages
✓✓ – You might need some chocolate to get you through
✓ – Watch TV instead
