Book Blogger Hop

Friday and time for the Book Blogger Hop once again! So, if you're a regular reader, take a moment and check out the other blogs that are participating over at Crazy For Books. If you're here from the Hop, then welcome! We're glad to have you here and hope you enjoy The Literary Soundtrack.

Book Blogger Hop
This week's question is: Do you use a rating system for your reviews and if so, what is it and why?

No, we don't, because we don't do reviews. This blog is about our personal feelings and the connections we make between books and music. The point of a book review is to share the reviewer's opinion about the book. In The Literary Soundtrack, our opinions of the books are almost incidental - except that you can figure that we've probably enjoyed the book. Enough to read it in the first place, and enough to think about it once we've finished reading it, anyway.

Funny story - we got a request to review a textbook a couple of months ago. We politely declined. Statistics and music don't really go together. Not unless you are really into math, at any rate. And, um, neither of us is exactly mathematically inclined.

Happy Friday. Come see what my rating system is. Speaking of math books, I was just offered a galley of one today. I said yes. :)

New follower from the Blog Hop. I don't use a rating system either. I find it too restricting.
