Passionate reader of various genres except horror. I was that kid with the flashlight under the covers, reading when I should have been sleeping. I love to read, talk about what I've read and just hang out with other readers.
It's been something that I've been thinking about for a while - changing my grading system. I've decided to change my letter grade-to-stars ratio. I don't want to because I feel that an A+ read should get a higher grade than an A- read. Since Amazon and Goodreads still don't allow 1/2 stars it's become difficult to accurately translate the letter grades to the star grades. So I've decided to give in but I'll also include the actual letter grade on the review when posting to Amazon or Goodreads.
As = 5 Stars Bs = 4 Stars Cs = 3 Stars Ds = 2 Stars DNF = 1 Star
I decided to include DNF (Do Not Finish) since Amazon will not allow a no star grade.
It's my hope that the review itself allows other readers to understand any likes and dislikes I have of the book being reviewed and not place so much importance on the grade. But I know many readers, myself included, like to see the grade, especially when I have yet to read the book and only want to see the grade.
So how do you like to grade? Stars? Letters or something else? And if you post on review sites, how do you translate your grades? Curious minds...
