Did they ever add a rating that let you say something along the lines of
"I'd rather pull out my fingernails than read this book?" There are a
couple of things I couldn't read because I hated them so much when I
tried, but they kept recommending Tolkein to me.

Alexlit actually nagged me into trying Bujold, because that was the only
thing besides Tolkein and Sandman that it kept recommending that I
hadn't read.
