I have changed the layout of the blog somewhat and edited the labels of the posts for easier searching of content based on the genre and geographical area. Also, starting with the next post a rating will be applied to the book reviewed. I was originally not so keen to rate books on a 1-5 scale, since different people appreciate different things. Also, one theme of the blog is how I find the books I read. However, some readers may want to compare my rating to other ratings quickly, so something like this will appear next to the title in the future:
★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆
The rating policy is as follows: the more I enjoyed the book, the more stars it will get. In other words, it's purely subjective, don't ask me to rationalize my choices!
