Factoring In the Price Tag: A New Rating

We’re always trying to perfect our reviewing and rating styles here at Rather Be Reading Blog. Right now we have OWN, BORROW, and SKIP… but time and time again, we find we are reading great books that are listed at unbelievable prices and… we get a little stuck. We like to primarily use OWN for the gold stars, our absolute favorite reads and finally we were hit with inspiration.

Pretty simple, isn’t it?

So if you see this pretty text under a review, it means we strongly recommend you purchase this treasure ASAP. (You never know how long sales are going to last, friends!)

To celebrate the new member of our rating family, we went through a bunch of past reviews to check on the (ever-changing) prices of books and selected a few awesome deals. We’ve stuck to eBooks with this list, but everything is 8 dollars and under.

You can’t ask for a better bargain!

Kristen - Ahhh, nooo! Why would you do this?! *covers eyes and pretends not to see shiny books on sale*

Seriously though, I love this new rating. Will be looking for it in the future. 🙂

Elise - True confession: the hardcover Populazzi is now cheaper on Amazon than it is from my publisher with my author discount… so even I bought a bunch of copies!

Excellent heads-up on great prices! I see a spree in my future…

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - This is a BRILLIANT idea girls. Absolutely brilliant. I adore it so, so much. I wish I were half as creative (and willing) to come up with a sort of rating system for my blog, haha.
