F1 for this blog!

"I can read better than anyone who can read faster, and I can read faster than anyone who can read better."

For the sake of clarity(mine) and for lesser degree of subjectivity, I thought of some Key Performance Indicators for judging a book. Here goes:

1. Synopsis: A one or two line description of the book's contents
2. Category:
Style of writing:
  • Wiki-wordy - Usage of convoluted and unnecessarily complicated words
  • Words-wordy - Usage of too many words
  • Simple-wordy - A simple NCERT kind of a write-up - just enough to convey the message

Story line:

  • Nail-Biting
  • Witty
  • Serious
  • Funny
3. Genre:
  • Non-Fiction
  • Children
  • Fantasy
  • Horror
  • Sci-Fi
  • Thriller/Page-turner
  • Poetry
  • Biography
  • Autobiography
  • Romance
  • Drama
  • Fiction ( any book which doesn't fit in the above category)

4. Language: More of a profanity alert.

5. Favorite Quote: Any interesting quote(s) in the book

6. Review: The section with the detailed review of the book.

7. Verdict: The final recommendation
