Sunday Post #8

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
~this meme was inspired in part by - In My Mailbox~
It's a chance to share News.
A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
This is your news post, so personalize it. Include as much as you want or as little.
Be creative, it can be a vlog or just a showcase of your goodies.

So, there are only two days to go and 2012 will official be over.  I love the start of a New Year, it is so full of possibilities and a prefect time to plan.

Over the next couple of days, I will be wrapping up 2012 on this blog and planning for the upcoming New Year.

One of the things that I am most excited about (regarding this blog), if changing my rating system.  I have been using a star system since I started this blog years ago and have always been dissatisfied with it.  The only reason that I have continued to use it is because it is easier to translate my ratings to the various sites that I review on.   I am not going to worry about that starting in 2013.

While I am not going to stop review on other sites, for The Little Reading Nook.  I am going to start giving letter grades.  For some reason, I think letter grades will be more reflective for how I feel about a book.  And now that I review there elements of each book (plot, character, and writing) I can give grades for each element separately and an overall grade.

What Happened Last Week (light week):
What's Happening This Week:
  • Monday: Review of  The Other Wes Moore by Wes Moore
  • Teaser Tuesday:  A quote from Little Bee by Chris Cleave  and a bunch of post about challenges.
  • Wednesday: Wondrous Word Wednesday
  • Thursday:  Booking Thur Thursday
  • Friday:  Weekly book finds
  • Saturday:  New Books

Happy Reading,


  1. Looks like a full week ahead of you! I love your avatar, too!

    Happy New Year!

  2. I like your rating idea, I usually rely more on what the reviewer says. The Sunday Post

    1. The stars never seem to really say what I want.

  3. I really like your idea of the new rating system especially with the different elements. Will be on the lookout for your first review in 2013. Have a very Happy New Year!!

  4. Looking forward to your new grade scale.
