Book rating

History / Edit / PDF / EPUB / BIB / 1 min read (~124 words)

In this article I define a 1-5 rating scale for books in order to be consistent across my evaluations. Given that rating books is somewhat subjective, introducing some amount of standardization on how I rate them should help with managing my reading.
