Wonderful Site for Finding Clean Reads

I've had such a hard time keeping up with blogging lately but I wanted to let you all know about a really great website that lists rated books called Rated Reads. Cathy Lim is a newspaper book reviewer so she reads a lot of the latest releases. She's sorted all of these books into the following categories; None, Mild, Moderate, and Off My Charts to describe the level of offensive material. This is a fantastic resource for those of us who want to limit the amount of junk we put in our heads through reading. I am amazed at the number of books she has reviewed. If a book has come out in the last few years and it was at all popular, you will probably find it in her archives. Thank you, Cathy, for your great service.

Thank you. I was just ranting about the popular "off the charts" books I just finished and wondering where I can find some cleaner stories.

Thanks so much for the post, I have been dying for someone to come up with this. I hate picking up a book not knowing what you're going to get. I'm heading over not to check out the site! =)

As you say, the central question is substance.
