Blog Hop Friday!

Happy Friday everyone!  It is that time hopping time!  Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer over at Crazy-for-Books.  If you want to participate and find some fabulous blogs, click on the link and sign up!

Question of the Week:

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

Yep, I use the standard old five star rating.  I use it to give people a general idea of how great (or horrible) I thought the book was.  People rate everything from pain to happiness on a scale so it is a pretty universal way for me to let someone know how I felt about the book.  I wanted to go with something a little more unique than the stars but just haven't had the time to make something up yet so there it is....
