I thought I was doing a nice thing by rating books using 1/2 stars but maybe not? It seems as though some book review blogs use them but none of the big sites do – Amazon, Goodreads, B&N etc. So, when I post my review on my blog and give the book 4.5/5 stars and then I post my review on Amazon or another site I have to either give it 4 or 5 stars. I think it skews the review process as I always tend to bump up the review. For example, if I give a book 4.5/5 stars then I bump it up to 5 stars on other review sites and if I give a book 3.5/5 stars I bump it up to 4. Does anyone else have an opinion? Any fellow bloggers want to weigh in?? Thank you for the input!!
