I think I finally found a good way to keep track of the books I’ve read, and find more of what I’d like to read. I can’t remember how I stumbled upon the Goodreads site, but I’m glad I did. The other day, I spent several hours importing various lists I’d kept of the books I’ve read over the last 6 years or so. I like that you can set up different “shelves” for the different topics in your collection, add reviews, and discuss in book groups. One of my favorite discoveries was of the various user created topical lists. I had a blast finding finding that there was a plethora of “Time Travel Fiction” books I didn’t even know about. I’m still pretty new to the site, but if you would like to add me as a friend, I can be found at http://www.goodreads.com/biffybeans.
Do you use any kind of book management software or applications to keep track of what you have read? Or do you prefer to keep track of your collection via pen & paper? I find I’m better at keeping historical lists (“Things I did in 2010”) than ongoing lists such as “currently reading” or “to read” etc. I’m a chronic re-copier and I’d spend more time copying & re-copying my book lists that I wouldn’t get any reading done. LOL!
