Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about recording your reading…
Do you keep track of what and/or how many books you read? How long have you been doing this? What's your favorite tracking method, and why?If you don't keep track, why not? (question courtesy of MizB)
I never thought of keeping track of what I read until I was introduced to Shelfari by one of me 2 best friends, she sent me the link for the site on my birthday and I subscribed the same day.. it was one of my treasured gifts :)
that was in December 2007..
I joined the 50 book challenge there and started to keep track from January of 2008.. I tried to add the books I read in Dec. 2007 since it coincides with me buying my sony reader.. so since then I know exactly what I read and what order they were read in..
But prior to that, I know most of the books I read but I don't keep track of all of them, I added some of them to my shelf..but that's about it..
Lately I was introduced to writing reviews and I so enjoy it because I love reading other people's reviews :) and it reminds me what that specific book was about even after a while, because sometimes when I'm reading a series I kind of forget which book had what details in it, or what was the main idea of the book! Plus it gives me a chance to voice out my thoughts and ideas about the book since I don't have book buddies in real life, so it's annoying to not be able to talk about a favorite book or a hated book :)
