Rating system takes into account genre; i.e. mysteries that are well-written or infused with humor might rate 4 or 5 stars even though they are not considered great literature. Literature may receive less than 5 stars if the novel is not "tight" i.e., extremely well-edited or a tad wordy. Wordy tomes, esp. Dickens, however, may rate 5 stars if every word fits, enhances the story.

Reference,cookbooks,art books are rated according to comprehensiveness.

Children's picture books are rated according to quality of illustration/art and charm.

Youth fiction is rated according to storyline and emotional truth and quality of writing.

Non-fiction: history, politics, culture, biography,naturalist accounts are rated according to quality and depth of thought, writing skill and crafting: how well the ideas are presented.

Humor rating: funny or not.

"The sunlight dripped over the house like golden paint over an art jar, and the freckling shadows here and there only
intensified the rigor of the bath of light."
