So I'm participating in this thing called the Book Blogger Hop this weekend, in the hopes that I can get things out into the community. There are some pretty interesting blogs on here, but I'm not going to play favorites or point them out, as the best stuff is discovered by chance or accident.
In any case, their question was "Do you use a ratings system for your reviews, and if so, what is it and why?"
I don't use a ratings system. I used to when this blog was still a twinkle in the milkman's eye, but when I started doing books almost exclusively, I dropped it. I figured I was already telling someone whether the book was bad or good, so I didn't need to put a summation up quantifying exactly how bad or good the book was. If it was good, it was good. If it was bad, it was bad.
