I have been debating about this change for more than half a year now but I was talking to Kate @ exlibriskate.com about this the other day and thought "Heck! I have been thinking about this change since forever now, why not just go for it?!". So I did.
Anna & Kristina's Grocery Bag. I was inspired by Anna Wallner and Kristina Matisic' stamp of approval on cookbooks, and thought "wouldn't it be cool to do that with the books I read?". I was unhappy with my rating system, but at that time I thought it would be too harsh of a change. Talking to Kate made me realized that I wasn't the only who thought this whole one to whatever stars rating system was flawed. I mean the new system is not perfect but I hope it will make the whole "rating" thing more consistent. It sure won't be easy to decide if a book is a pass or fail when it is on the borderline. I will have hard decisions to make in the future but I hope it is all worth it.
Anyway, here are the new rating widget.
I know this is harsh but I hope this will make my rating system more consistent. Do note that just because I failed the book, doesn't mean it was a complete bust. This new system will also encourage the readers to read the reviews more so they can see why I passed it or why I failed it.....heehee sneaky eh? :P
I hope you guys like the new change.
