MY BOOK RATING SYSTEM (borrowed from florafloraflora and tweaked by me)

10: Excellent. This book has impacted me deeply, or has simply been a pure delight to read.
9: Great book - just a nitpick stands between it and a 10.
8: Good, solid book that I would recommend to others.
7: Good book, but ... it didn't grab me in a *big* way.
6: Decent, but only enjoyed it somewhat or not really my type of book.
5: I'm sure somebody else would like this, although I didn't.
4: Only OK. Barely worth reading. I read it but don't know why
3: Major problems. I don't recommend this. Probably did not finish this book
2: I gave up on this book. Someone else may enjoy it, but I didn't
1: Ugh! Stay away! It's hard to imagine *anyone* liking this book!!! Maybe only read a few pages.
