Booking Through Thursday - Rating
This week, Booking Through Thursday asks:
Movies have a rating system to help guide the consumer weed out adult/violent/inappropriate kinds of films. Video games do, too. Do you think BOOKS should have a ratings system?
Flat out, no. Reason being is that books are so subjective in regards to the content material that is found inbetween the covers of a book. What one person may find objectionable may not be objectionable to another person. And its a rather arbitrary way of evaluating books. And in a way it promotes censorship, especially among young readers who are trying to expand what they read and are exploring books that deal with more mature topics as they move up in their reading abilities.
