Exiled - M.R. Merrick Good grief, authors, stop rating your own books 5 stars!

Seeing an author give himself/herself a 5-star rating just puts me off, it moves a book from my "must read it soon" shelf to my "ehh, maybe eventually" shelf. It's irritating and egotistical, and I know for a fact that I'm not the only reader who thinks this way. There are lots of us.

The natural conclusion to this rant is....it's getting authors less business when they rate their own books with a 5. I really, really don't think this is what they want...
