Reading Reflections….

I got this idea from a fellow Blogger…and though it was brilliant…..so I going to copy the concept and have a page of my own where I rate the books I read…!

So here  is the  chart that will help you decode  the monthly ratings of the books I have read!

5Star *****  is a  Must Read Book

4 Star**** is  a Good to Read Book

3 Star*** is a Not Bad to Read Book

2 Star **  You don’t miss much if you don’t read it

1 Star*  Absolutely Avoidable!
