Perhaps someday Bookshare can have multiple rating systems like G, PG, R and X for books. Then people who don't want X rated books but do want R rated books can have that option.

I do rate some things adult, usually books that have graphic descriptions of sexual acts that to me are coarse or unpleasant. Parents of children and young adults who think their children are mature enough to read anything they want can give their permission--there is a form for this I understand--and then they can download whatever they want.
