When someone looks at your book list, do they see the ratings that YOU have given each book, or do they see the ratings that have been given by EVERYONE (an average)?  I know when you search for a title, it is the average rating, but I am wondering about your own personal list. Thanks!

I've wondered this also. I looked at your shelf and it looks like most of the stars match if I click on the book title (which should take me to the "tnereal" list).

It shows:

Accidental Family - 4 stars

Angels Fall - nothing

Carolina Moon - 4 stars

Cats cross their grave - 4 stars

Cat who saw red - 4 1/4 stars

Cell - 5 stars

 

Are those your ratings for those books?

I just gave Tom Sawyer (the first book on my shelf) a 5 star rating and when I look at myshelf by clicking on it here it shows my rating in gold. I dunno though if thats what other people see. It had no star rating to begin with though.

Hmmm then I suppose you see the general rating and since I was the only one to rate it there werent enough to generate a general rating. At least thats how it seems to me.

Denise:

Here is what I see:

(Yellow Stars)

Accidental Family - 3 stars

Angels Fall - 5 stars

Carolina Moon - 5 stars

Cats cross their grave - 5stars

Cat who saw red - 5 stars

Cell - 3 stars

So what I see in yellow does not seem to match what you are seeing.

Chris,

I also looked at Tom Sawyer on your shelf and the stars are all gray.

OK, sounds like it shows you your own ratings but other people the general ratings?
