...I quit rating the books by stars.
Well, to tell the truth...I kind of forgot.
And then, once I remembered, I realized it was kind of stupid anyway. Our society loves ranking things. We live by it. But it's not really necessary. How can I really compare one book to another? Books are written for different purposes and mean different things to different people. How can I say one's a two-star and one's a four-star?
They are works of art. They aren't meant to be ranked. They are meant to be pondered and discussed.
So...that's why I quit. Maybe I'll start back up. But in the meantime, I prefer to just discuss.
