So shoot me

If you check out my Facebook ratings for both books and movies you'll see a lot of five star ratings for books and not so many for movies. It's almost as though I think books are better or something.

Do you think maybe you are too generous in giving out 5 stars?

Not saying you are...

I would expect more books to get 5 stars simply because most people are more selective when reading books. You watch more movies than you read books... well, maybe not you but most people.

You seldom just go out for an afternoon and think, this book looks crap but I have nothing better to do for the next couple of hours...

I really get irritated when I go to the movies and there is nothing I want to watch....

but I have a back log of books to read...

plus, books don't go off circuit

There's a lot to what you say but it can't be the whole story. I've reviewed about 3 times as many movies but given twice as many books five stars.

I think its a case of intellectual insecurity. SAying, "Pah! war and peace is rubbish, but spiderman 2, now thats art!" just seems very very wrong somehow
