Looking for fellow Homeschool Moms to help me write a book "rating" blog!

Update: We have reached our current limit of authors! Thank you all so much for your interest. 
We will be considering adding a few more ladies in the future. 
You may leave your name here in the comments section, and I can add you to the list. 
Thank you so much!


Hi ladies. I am wanting to start up a new blog with multiple authors. My vision for it is that as we read books to our kids, or pre-read them, we can post about them on the blog. this will not be a book "review" blog as much as it will be a "rating" blog.
I am very cautious of what my children read, and I know that others of you are too.
It is hard to read every single book before we hand it to our kids, so I thought , what if we work together and so this, then maybe we could help each other out.
I was thinking that it would go something like this.
We would post the title of the book, if we thought it was appropriate for all ages, middle school,  high school, or adult, something like that.
And if we thought it was not appropriate, why.
Or, if we thought the book was good overall, but maybe it had a couple of words, like "stupid" or something. List that as well.
Pretty much saying that so and so book is appropriate for all ages, or the content would be better for a 11th or 12 grader or something like that.
I do not have all of the details, but I am wanting to work on this together with some of you, and come up with it together.
We can even come up with a rating scale, and have tabs or something that would categorize.
The name, and details, I would like to collaborate on together!
If you would like to help me on this, please leave a comment and your blog address, and I will get back to you soon! Thanks ladies, I am really looking forward to getting this started! Get back with me asap, and we can get it all figured out.
So excited!

I would love to participate in this! Please count me in! I know that for my dd especially it is difficult to find books that are 'worthwhile' for her. A lot of girls her age are reading things that are NOT appropriate...so we (dd & I) can't go on their recommendations!

Hi Blossom! I am sorry to say that we have reached our limit for the time being.
We are considering adding a few more mamas though after we get it all up and running.
I will put your name on that list and contact you if we have a spot open.
Thank you so much for your interest!

Martin Luther: b. 1483-1546: "I am very much afraid that schools will prove to be the great gates of hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not increasingly occupied with the Word of God must become corrupt."
