While reviewing a book I have recently read tonight, this question popped into my head. Generally, I do not rate books below a 3/5, and I rarely rate a book a 3/5. So that being said, how important is the rating number to authors? I generally do not dislike books, if a book for me is slow in spots but totally engulfs me in the end, I usually rate it a 4 or 5, depending how much the story gets to me, but is this helpful to authors or not? I try to state if the book was harder for me to get into and information like that, but if you book is rate 4/5 or 5/5 or even 3/5, how does that affect you as an author? Is the rating more important, or the actual review? I would love to get authors opinions, please don't be shy!!!
