Yay! My first Hop! I'm the 302th entrant for this week :D
The book blogger hop is hosted by http://www.crazy-for-books.com, and the idea is for the event to last over the weekend to give everyone a chance to visit the other bloggers.
*waves* Hiiii to all the folks stopping over from the Hop.
The question this week (one answers a new Q each week) is:
Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it and why?
I use a simple grading system (A, B+, B- and so on). I find it is more flexible than stars or smilies, though I wish I had a cute graphic icon I could sort of 'paste' onto the reviews. There have been one or two reviews where I haven't felt qualified to grade, they are just so stunningly outside the grade curve!
I think of this blog as more than a review blog - about 25% of my posts are about ebook readers, and I have lots of cute, book-related, graphics that I re-post(with credits) from the brilliant folks that create.
If you are a Kindle/Ebook-Reader user, or would like the pure convenience of converting any book format to any OTHER book format, I would highly recommend you read this very useful post on using Calibre with the Kindle/Sony/Nook!
