Reads

I like to read. I make an effort to review every book I finish. If I hate a book and didn’t finish it I’ll probably write about that, too.

I use 1 (horrible) to 10 (awesome) to express how much I liked it. A grade of 6 is a book I would recommend to friends.

I try to never spoil a book when writing about it. But I’ve lied in the past.
