Okay, so I mentioned yesterday that I thought I needed to come up with a ratings scale for book reviews. I read a lot. Especially now that I have my new Kindle Fire. I also read a lot to my kids. As my Mom used to say, my kids have more books than Carter’s has pills. I have no idea who Carter was, or what kind of pills he had, but apparently, it mattered.
Anyway, I’ve been thinking about it, and I think my rating scale on MY books should look like this…
1 star- Really? THIS was published?
2 stars- I just wasn’t that into it.
3 stars- Worth a trip to the library to check it out.
4 stars- LOVED this book. Worth spending money on.
5 stars- It CHANGED me. I’d give this one as a gift.
For the kids books? I’m thinking something like this…
1 star- Not worth the paper it’s printed on.
2 stars- Meh, it was okay.
3 stars- Cute and/or fun. The kids liked it. Great library book.
4 stars- Promotes learning and we all liked it. Add this to your personal library or give as a gift!
5 stars- A fast favorite. Makes a great gift for any child.
I’d love your input. Do you write book reviews? How do you rate them?
