Michelle’s Rating System etc.
What makes a good (paranormal topic) book:
- Unbiased (ie. no belief or political slant)
- Based on fact (ie. give history or specific interview for first person experiences)
- Give good detail (vague information or location makes it difficult for personal follow up)
Ratings: “Spend the Money” meaning a great book for the personal library, new or used.
“Check it out at the Library” worth reading once, or picking up 2nd hand.
“Don’t waste the Brain Space” not worth having to dust off on the bookshelf.
“Checking out /Want list” saw or head about but have yet to see for myself
