The Reading Meter #1: April
Published on Wednesday, May 2, 2012 by

I read alot of books every month. Some remain consistent every month but others are up and down alot. We review alot of books here at the ‘Verse but I wanted to try to do a monthly comparasion between issues. See which ones remain strong and which don’t. Also how long can I hold out on a book going down before it gets removed from the pull list.

The Reading Meter will be an ongoing look at how books do from month to month. There won’t be any ratings, just a simple + (better), – (worse) and = (same). With my numbered ratings in the reviews, this translates to 1,2 (-); 3 (=); 4, 5 (+). For the first month there will be an additional rating given to the title as a whole, to serve as a baseline for the chart to grow from. That first rating will be the average rating for that book up to this point and will be numeric to set the baseline, that rating will be in () after the title. If the book doesn’t have a +,- or = then it means it’s making it’s first appearance in my pull list.

For the most part the books want to remain at a “=” level, which indicates it’s consistent, and have a baseline of at least 3. The monthly ratings are based off the baseline of the book. Continuous + in a row would indicate that it’s improving and continuous – in a row would mean it’s getting worse, and after awhile the baseline would get adjusted. Not sure how this will go or how long it’ll last but should be interesting.

Only the ongoings are on the list. And not all the books I get monthly made it onto the first list.
