Friday - Let's HOP!


Friday is the day when you can follow and hop amongst a great many blogs - I am planning to visit as many of the blogs I already follow as I can!  I will try to get to other blogs from the hop as well!
Be sure that you go check out as many blogs as you can during this great event day!
These are Friday events:
Friday Book Blogger Hop from Crazy-for-books
Friday Follow from Parajunkee's View
Friday's Finest from A Bookful of Thoughts
Friday's Fab Five from Froggarita's Bookcase
Friday Finds from Should Be Reading
Friday 56 from Storytime with Tonya


This weeks question is: Do you use a rating system? Why or why not?
I don't use a rating system.  I read for pleasure and my reviews are simply what I thought of the book.  I don't want to make more work out of the review by giving it a rating system - either I liked it or I didn't.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! :]

That is an awesome list of Top 100 Books. I'm definitely going to use it to check off the ones that I still need to read, too.

Have a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by my blog to let me know about your giveaway. I must have missed it somehow.

I've read/own/plan to read 32 books off that 100 YA titles list you put up. Looks like you've taken on quite a few yourself!

Have an awesome weekend!

Hello!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I took a look at your Top 100 YA books, and I've actually read quite a few, though I didn't count exactly how many.

Have a great weekend.

Hi! I am hopping in for the hop! Thanks for visiting me earlier!

I like your answer - grades are kind of arbitrary, and all that really matters is whether or not you enjoyed the book.

Have a great weekend!

Hi and thanks for coming by today and for showing my Favorite Things Contest in the sidebar! It's great that you advise your schools reading club. I often say that parent's should also read the YA books their kids do. It gives common ground and helps encourage meaningful conversation. I think discussing Bella falling apart after Edward leaves in New Moon would be great - one could learn so much about one's child there; about that losing oneself in a relationship.

Anyway - I don't use a rating system although sometimes I make one up on the spot! Fangs, Wands and Fairy Dust

You make a really good point. I'm currently trying out a rating system - but I don't really like quantifying things.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog!
I suggested the rating system question to the hop so it's very interesting to now see all the answers. I don't use a rating system either.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hopping over to say hello! Thanks for stopping by my site.

I think that's great if you can just read without "rating." My mind is so analytical, I have to label everything LOL!!

Happy Weekend!
