What do the stars mean?

 

 

 

 

How do you get through so many books?

★★★★★ = Loved it!

★★★★ = Really liked it!

★★★ = Liked it.

★★ = Meh.

★ = I couldn't finish it.


On average, I read for approximately 2 hours a day. I read books in three ways:

  1. A regular old paper book - this is my preferred format. I love holding a book in my hands and turning pages. I also love giving myself a goal such as finishing a book in 5 days...then I divide the number of pages or chapters by five and dog ear each section. I like seeing how far I have to go to reach my goal (and more often than not I can't stop at the dogeared page and I just keep on reading)
  2. On Audible when I'm walking around Chicago and when I'm driving between Bloomington, IN (where I work) and Chicago, IL (where I live.)
  3. On Kindle or other digital format - I usually only do this when I'm reading a book before it is published through programs such as First to Read.
