|BTT Asks: Do you keep a list of the books you’ve read? How? In a journal? Through one of the online services? If so, WHY? To keep good records for future reference? To make sure you don’t accidentally reread? If not, why not? Too eager to move on to the next book? Too lazy? Never thought to bother?|
Until a year ago I only kept a mental checklist of books that I've read and even then I'd still sometimes repurchase books on accident. When you read in the volume I do it is really hard keeping all the books straight. That all changed when I was introduced to Goodreads (I also use Librarything on occasion) and my book tracking world was changed forever. It is great being able to track what I've read and what I want to read. I never really thought about doing so until Goodreads and now its like How did I ever go without this, its the greatest thing ever!! Would of saved me so much hassle when tracking down books I needed in a series or remembering an Authors name so I could keep track of other books they released. I look back and think of all the years I'd have to play Book Cover charades and try to piece together who the Authors were or the title of the book was.
Anyway if you haven't checked out Goodreads yet I highly suggest doing so it really is a great site. I also use Pinterest and that is great as well as I just pin the books I want to respective boards.
Now for my questions, How do you keep track of books? Do you use Goodreads, Librarything or pinterest? Leave me an answer in the comments below, I love reading your responses!
