Book Cave can give your book an Official MBR Rating to use on book covers and websites, as well as to display here on MBR. Alternatively, you can use a Community Rating at no cost. See tabs below for details.
Request an Official Rating
Receiving an official rating boosts readers’ confidence in your book. Please note that this is different from a Community Rating, which you or any reader can give your book by clicking on SUBMIT A RATING. If the book you wish to rate isn’t already on MBR, it will be added when we post your rating.
For an Official MBR Rating, one or more editors will be involved in rating your content. Different editors are assigned different rating levels and types of books, so in order to determine the right MBR editors to rate your book, please provide the following information. Once you are approved for a slot in our schedule, we’ll let you know where to send your book file, verify page count, and send you an invoice. (Please see the bottom of this page for the cost.)
$75 for books up to 250 pages
$25 additional for each 50-page increment
$25 for picture books with fewer than 50 pages
Please note that our page counts are based on Times New Roman 12 pt font, double-spaced pages. We hope to accommodate anyone who would like an official rating, but MBR reserves the right to reject any application.
Yes, these are copyrighted, but once you add the book you would like to rate to our database, you have our permission to download its corresponding “MBR Community” rating free of charge for posting on your blog or website. If you’re a blogger, use them for your next book review. Or if you’re an author or publisher, post or print one on all your books to let people know the content rating.
If you are a publisher or blogger posting content ratings on multiple books by different authors, you must link to our site to credit our MBR system. This is usually done in the section where you describe how and/or why you rate books. However, it is not necessary to link each icon you use to our site.
In exchange for using our icons and rating system, we require that you submit and rate the books you are using icons for on My Book Ratings. This is a free, permanent book listing that many readers use to find books in their comfort level.
Thank you for encouraging more people to visit us and to rate more books!
NOTE: ANY SITE THAT IS PRIMARILY A BOOK PROMOTION SITE, WHETHER THEIR SERVICE IS FREE OR PAID, MAY NOT UTILIZE MBR COMMUNITY RATINGS TO POST ON THEIR WEBSITE, SOCIAL MEDIA, OR IN EMAILS TO THEIR SUBSCRIBERS.
