Books Read in 2011 - January

I've decided to continue my task from last year of keeping a running tally of all the books I read. Not only to see how many I read, but also to keep track of what I've read, authors I've enjoyed, etc.  This year I've added a rating system so you, my lovely followers, will have an idea of what I thought of the book.

I don't do reviews because I've kind of always hated book reports and I'm concerned I give too much away. If I really enjoy something, I might do a reaction, but no real review. I don't want to accidentally ruin it for someone if I say too much!

Here is the key I devised:  (GAH! blogger turns Word symbols into letters. Let me hunt up real images...)

 Rating System:

Outstanding. You need to run out & get this NOW!


Meh. I was not much of a fan.

Under no circumstances should you waste your time with this.
