Do you ever wonder what makes a book or novel get a 5 Star rating? One would think it is due to high sales, but this is not always the case. Many avid book readers use a website called Goodreads, www.goodreads.com, that lets anyone rate books and leave comments. If one were to use this website, they have to sign up for it, and it is free. It is similar to Facebook where you can find friends and follow authors. Like Facebook, it monitors what you add to your page so it can select other books or novels that you may like. It compiles a list of the best books to read based on your information.
Amazon is the number one seller of books in the world. After a person buys a product or book, shortly after an email is sent to the buyer to see if they want to rate their product. It stores all of your past products so if it takes you a while to read a book or novel, that’s okay it will remind you at your next purchase that you never rated your prevoius book.
Many readers value the opinions of others, so the higher the rating the more likely they are to put it on their list of books to read. Some readers skip the 5 star rating system and go straight to The New York Times Best Sellers list. If it has sold a lot, then it must be worth checking out. Good luck finding the next best novel to read.
