New Rating System

So I've finalized a 'rating' system - & created corresponding graphics - for the books that I read and talk about here. Here are the 4 categories:

My VERY top rating: "Absolutely Amazing!" - these are the books that I ADORE and will highly recommend to EVERYONE. This will be used VERY RARELY. It would be for books like Nalini Singh's Psy/Changeling books, for example

"Keeper" is my rating for books that are.... you guessed it... going on my keeper shelf. These are books that I love - ones that I will re-read again and again. I think these books are worth buying and recommend them.

Rating a book as "Library" means that it was an OK book but not worth the money. These are the books that I wish I had gotten it (or am glad that I DID get it) from the library. They're not a recommended read but not a total stinker either.

Finally, this rating is for books that I "wish I'd passed on..." These are books that I REALLY didn't enjoy - basically, the books that I thought sucked.

Gee. This isn't a super scary rating system or anything. *Memo to me, chase valium with vodka before reading one of Ange's reviews*

What?!? Are you serious or just messing with me? Why would it be scary?

Impressive. A rating system with pictorial representation. It's perfect tor the illiterate peeps who want to read your reviews! Wait. That doesn't make sense. LOL Seriously... seems like a good system. :)

Thanks Mollie!

Too funny, Christine! Hey... I'm just trying to promote literacy... doing my part.

The pics are lazy, I can copy and paste them - which is one of the reasons I did them - but then I ended up spending HOURS looking for the right graphics. I think any 'time saving' that might have come from using the graphics is busted because of the time I spend making them. LOL!
