  1. Answer. Happy long weekend, everyone!

  2. Yes! It would be nice. A few times I’ve gotten into what looks like a relatively clean book only to run smack into an illicit scene or assaulted with foul language. Whether such scenes and words should be in books is another question, but it would be nice for those who don’t want them to have some way of avoiding them.

  3. It would be difficult to reach a consensus of a rating system. My full answer is posted on my blog.

    Great question – and a tough one to answer! http://thenerdyreader.com/2013/03/28/booking-through-thursday-ratings/

  5. Personally I feel that it would be a slippery slope and what one reader/parent would think of as objectionable may not be objectionable to another reader/parent.

  8. I have never thought about this before, interesting question! Also, apologies for this being so late, it kind of slipped my mind.

  9. Also late but I sorta like having a week to contemplate the question.
