How I Rate Books

While on holiday I stumbled across this adorable Reading Journal:

A review of this rare delight will come along soon. And yes, while I have applied a filter to compensate for the dodgy lighting, it is in fact lime green.

Inside it has an unusual rating system (at least to me). It asks you to rate books from 1 – 6. I googled for ideas but ultimately I went with my gut – which hopefully I will just trust more in future!

So here we go…

I have aimed for something that takes into consideration those books that you love but aren’t technically great works of literature. And while there is an argument for enjoyment being the defining characteristic in how great a work it is – my Comparative Literary Studies degree disagrees!
