I've been thinking-

I know I'm a bit on the extreme side....but seriously, I think books need ratings. I love to read. I love going to the library, picking up a book, and after carefully reading the back; taking it home to enjoy a little down time. The thing is, I have become super-cautious about the whole process- because you really don't know what you are getting until you start reading. The whole "don't judge a book by it's cover" is for real. I feel like I have to limit myself to books that have been read by someone I trust, or sticking to christian authors. I just wish there was a better system to provide us a little more insight as to what we are getting, just like movies. Anyways, those are just some thoughts, anybody agree with me and my super "molly" ways:)?

I totally get what you are saying!! I cannot believe what I have read in some books that were supposed to be really good. Maybe someday they will put ratings on them....

I totally agree. I am a HUGE reader and am sick of accidentally picking the books that have sections that I don't need or want to read. I found a couple of Christian authors that I like, but there aren't a lot.

I totally agree! I have just discovered that I love reading! I'm mostly just reading my friend's books, so no problems yet with inappropriate-ness, but I defiantly agree that it's probably a real bummer to get into a good book and find a bunch of filth or violence or whatever.
