Book Blogger Hop: 8/27-8/30

August 27, 2010

By now, you all know what the deal is with Crazy for Books’ wonderful Book Blogger Hop. About 90% of the blogs I follow I have found through the hop and in turn I’ve made some wonderful friends. This week, the question hoppers are being asked is:

Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it and why?

No, I don’t use a rating system. I thought about having one, but I didn’t want to restrain myself to a specific level of rating, you know? Instead, I simply state exactly how I felt about the book, but a rating can be found on my GoodReads account since you kind of have to use one on the site. 🙂

So, head on over to Crazy for Books and sign up for the hop and discover some new blogs!

    Just hopping through. I’m an old follower. I like using the hop to stay in touch with everyone I follow!

    I do use a rating system for people who want to do a quick scan to decide if they want to buy the book before reading my opinion on it but I can understand why you wouldn’t.

    Happy reading!

    New follower. I don’t use ratings either because they are overrated (pun). Take a look at my rationale:

    Here for the Hop! I do not use a rating system. No two books are alike, unless they have the same author.
