My rating system:
- Five stars: Books that have profoundly influenced my life (such as the Bible, Teachings of Buddha, Tao Te Ching, Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius. Also, Lord of the Rings, and Chronicles of Narnia). Also given to books that are well-written, informative, and important in their field.
- Four stars: Excellent books that are well-written, enjoyable and I’m likely to read again and again (think David Copperfield, everything Jane Austin, Agincourt...) or history that I’ve really enjoyed reading and learned something new (such as Six Frigates or Mayflower).
- Three stars: Good reads that I enjoyed that I might or might not read again.
- Two stars: A miracle if I finish.
- One star: You won’t see these in my library.
