Read in 2013






Here is where I plan to keep a record of books read and to be read. Once I finish the book it will be rated. If there is no rating, it means I just want to read that book in that month.
Ratings criteria or what I call the "put down, pick up factor":
  • 1* put it down and leave it down, couldn't stand it, best used as a paperweight, doorstop or kindling.
  • 2* meh, could take it or leave it but mostly leave it. I could put it down and not care if I picked it up again or not
  • 3* okay enjoyable read, although I liked it, I could put it down easily and not rush back to continue
  • 4* I really liked this one, I could put it down but reluctantly and was anxious to get back to it
  • 5* Loved it! Couldn't put it down and if I absolutely had to ( if something was on fire or flooding) I couldn't wait to get back to it.

    4. So will this be the extent of your blogging? It might not work all that bad! Maybe you can just put a few words about what you thought and be done. Easy -- one post for a year.
