Inspirational Quote: "All writers are vain, selfish and lazy, and at the very bottom of their motives lies a mystery. Writing a book is a long, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand." -- George Orwell
I've been looking over my posts to this point. To read the Book Reports, you'd think I'd never read a bad book. That doesn't say much for my critical faculties. I have read bad books, but not recently and not since I started blogging. I guess I've been lucky.
So, since my prose tends toward the flattering, I've decided to use a rating system to illustrate my response to the book.
- I couldn't finish this.
- I finished this, but I didn't enjoy it.
- I had a tough go.
- I enjoyed this.
- I loved this.
- I'll read this again and again.
The ratings for everything I've read are now in the Reading List in the left sidebar.
