Blog Hoppin

Book Blogger Hop

This week's question pertains to rating systems.  I don't use a rating system.  I feel too restricted by it.  Every now and then I'm tempted by it, but then when I'm trying to rate a book on goodreads I'm reminded why I don't use it.




Parajunkee asks what the first book we remember reading.  Hmmm...I remember reading some Berenstein Bear books when I was young, but surely before that I was reading something else, but I can't specifically remember reading anything else...maybe Dick and Jane...

I just started using the rating system, but I added like 7 levels because I too feel a bit restricted at times.
We'll see how it goes, I'm not totally in love with rating the books.

Happy Friday! It's my first time participating in Follow Fridays but I'm a regular on the hop.

I'll be avoiding your Mockingjay review until I get through it myself ;) It seems like I'm avoiding everyone's blogs this week.

I'm already a follower but I wanted to share my first memories of books, which were read alouds with my dad. I remember I Am A Puppy, The Piggy in the Puddle, and A Home for a Bunny being favorites. Have a great weekend!
