I think they are missing a couple of catagories. At the very least there should be a catagory for "I don't think I want to read it." For me that would probably consist of at least Cloud Atlas, The Handmaid's Tale and Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell; since I've never heard of the first and third, nor heard of their authors, and what I know of The Handmaid's Tale doesn't put it too high on my list of things I'm likely to read.

I could really also use something to shade between "I liked it!" and "I didn't like it!"
