Can you explain your Star Ratings, Ticket Stubs, Hungry Worms and Cover Ratings?
        I don't do halfsies.. If I can't decide between a half rating I'll let you know in the review and why, and or if its one or the other.  My star ratings for each book are 1-5 stars. (1 representing the lowest rating, 5 being the highest)
   - I also want to add that yes, I rate a lot things three stars but that is not a bad thing so please don't take it so negatively if I rate your book or movie three stars. 
(I think five stars get abused too often so when I rate a book or movie with five stars that means it really speaks to me. Four stars are like my five stars but five are my all star trojan horses. Three stars are like four stars and so on.) 
Movie Tickets are the same as star ratings for books except they're for films I've reviewed. Movies can earn between 1-5 stubs. (1 being the least liked, 5 being the most)
I'll be adding a new feature to my book reviews that also rates the cover art of the book being reviewed. (Because hey - covers need love too)
Hungry Worm Ratings are for childrens books that I'll be posting for Storytime reviews. The rating will be 1-3 worms one being the lowest and three being the highest rating. Storytime reviews won't get actual reviews just ratings.
The cover ratings are ordered as follows: Bronze Star, Silver Star, Gold Star. (Bronze being least favorite, Gold being the most.)
I have a DNF "stamp" for lowest rated books, books I couldn't complete, or give a one star rating to. 

What is a DNF stamp? 
      The DNF stamp crosses both book and movie reviews and simply states that I was unable to complete either reading the book or watching the movie. In its simplest form DNF means Did Not Finish. However, there are a few instances where I have completed the book but for whatever reason decided not to give the book a star rating. Either because I did not like the book or some other reason.

No Hate.
   I recently decided to add an additional clause to the review section because I felt it needed to be said. I even highlighted the text to make sure it wasn't missed.
If I give a book or film a low rating its for my own reasons. I'll say it again... If I give a book or film a low rating its for my own reasons. I do not want my reasons for rating something the way I did to prevent others from reading a book or watching a movie. 

  I embrace the belief that everyone is different and not all persons are the same and will not always like the same things the same way. Like or Dislike - everyone is entitled to their own opinions either way. I am entitled to mine just as everyone else is entitled to theirs.
   Rating something one star does not mean that I want to or am encouraging others not to read a book or not watch a movie. Just as rating a book or movie five stars does not mean that I expect others to love a book or movie the way I did. 

   I always encourage others to read a book or watch a movie for themselves to form their own opinions. Even if their opinion is completely opposite of what I felt about it! 
That's what makes us individuals. Each of us is different and there is nothing wrong with that. 
   For example when I've rated a movie one star or a book one star or if I gave it a DNF stamp from being unable to finish it doesn't mean that I've blacklisted reading anymore books by that author or blacklisted watching any movies later on with that actor in it. 

   Even if I absolutely hate that book or movie I'm always willing to give the next book, the next movie another chance. 
It may take me reading ten more books by that author before I find one I like but I am always willing to give the next one another go. I hope you all will as well. So please don't think I'm encouraging low interest because I've rated something less than five stars. That is not my intention at all. 

What is a QR code? 
         QR is the abbreviation for Quick Response Code. QR is the trademark for a type of matrix barcode. QR is a machine-readable optical label that contains information about the item to which it is attached.

Where can I get a QR scanner?
           Most tablets and cell phones have access to online app stores where you can purchase a (Free) scanner app.

 How do I add your QR code to my phone? 
          Open your QR app hover the scan screen (your camera lens) over the QR image until the boxes line up. The link for Krissys Bookshelf Reviews (mobile friendly version) should automatically appear!

 How do I add your blog button to my web page or blog?
