Review Scale

 Our rating scale is based on the famed expression "the face that launched a thousand ships", which was used to describe Helen of Troy's beauty. 
The books we review are each given a value between 1 and 1000 (what we think the number of ships they would launch is).

Steps to rate a book:
1.      Use a 1 – 10 rating scale. Select the number you think suits the book.
2.      Change the number to hundreds. (EX: If you chose 7, it becomes 700.)
3.      Deduct 100. (EX: The 700 would become 600)
4.      Add/subtract categorical points.
5.      Add/subtract bonus/opinion points.

Categorical Points:
