About laurenpie

I initially gave only my very favorite books 5 stars; I've since evolved.

I now give ratings based on comparisons to a book's own genre, not comparisons to every favorite book I've ever read. Fairer to the authors and more helpful to prospective readers. By my new rating method, even a lighthearted fun book that fully lives up to its potential and goal can get 5 stars, no longer exclusively the heavy life-altering ones.

    Note: Wrapper classes InputStreamReader and OutputStreamWriter wrap a char Reader or Writer around an InputStream or OutputStream of bytes, say from System.in. These wrapper classes are in the Reader and Writer (char) hierarchies and are the superclasses of FileReader and FileWriter.
