Friday Book Blog Hop (2 of 3)

Book Blogger Hop
Hosted by Jennifer from CRAZY FOR BOOKS

   In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and find new book-related blogs that we may be missing out on! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs that they may not know existed! So, grab the logo, post about the Hop on your blog, and start HOPPING through the list of blogs that are posted in the Linky list below!!
   The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week, so if you don't have time to Hop today, come back later and join the fun! This is a weekly event! And stop back throughout the weekend to see all the new blogs that are added! We get over 200 links every week!!
   Your blog should have content related to books, including, but not limited to book reviews.
   If you start following someone through the Hop, leave a comment on their blog to let them know! Stop back during the week to see other blogs that are added! And, most importantly, the idea is to HAVE FUN!!
Today's Twist:
Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it and why?
My Answer:
Yes.  I have a rating system, which can be seen on the left side of this blog, from 1-5.  I feel it is a cyberuniverse system with 5 being FANTASTIC.  Some sites require the a rating system so feel that I should post it across the board.  I think that the wording may be a little different from other bloggers, but the majority that use the 1-5 scale are typically the same rating.

1-5 is mostly universe and we all agree that 5 means a book was just soooo good!

I am hopping by from Housewife Blues and Chihuahua Stories to say Hello and have a good weekend....

I guess my ratings is based on Goodreads style. I write it and then post the style at the end of the month.
Have a great weekend. :)

I think the rating system is over-rated!

Have a blast hopping to/following new blogs or beginning great books!

Here is my /Book blogger hop/Follow me/Book Beginnings post! I am an eclectic reader!

I very seldom review a book on my blog, however, I do have a Book Journal that I write my reviews in of the books I read and I rate them by the 5 star points.

I use 1 - 5 rating because it is global also, I personalised mine. Have a great weekend Cheryl

Stopping by on the hop. I am on the 1-5 rating system too. Been thinking about converting it to something clever...still working on that. Have a great weekend!
