  1. Happy New Year, Jo! Hope you had a great time welcoming 2011! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ll take that last chance and put my name in! Thanks for doing a book draw, that’s so nice of you ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, I love your blog name, so unless you’re very unhappy with it, I’d keep it. Also, I kind of like my blog name so far. But perhaps I’ll want some change in the future ๐Ÿ™‚

Ratings Defined

0 = Abandon the book after first chapter

1 = Waste of paper, we will see what the environmentalist say about this!

2 = Skip it, read the book if you have got nothing better to do

2.5 = An average book, easily forgettable.

3 = A good read.

3.5 = A good entertaining read, a page-turner

4 = So glad that I read the book, a book with substance and invaluable for future reference

4.5 = So glad that I read the book, would pester everyone to read it, invaluable, I would want to own it and wouldn't mind a second read (something that I seldom do)

5 = The book is so good that I feel like I am on scale 4 and 4.5, and more, it blew me away and lingers on my head for weeks!

Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking. - Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
