Booking Through Thursday: Records

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme hosted at Booking Through Thursday.
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?

In the past I never kept a list in the past because I usually remember exactly which books I've read and which I haven't by looking at the cover or remembering the title/author. They were always in pieces though, unless it was recent or some other reason. I came across Goodreads in September this year and now keep a  list on Goodreads so I wouldn't accidentally reread, even though I don't mind rereading a good book. I personally think I reread so I can catch the details that went flying over my head the first time. But even with my mental list, I always played a Whack-A-Mole style of a game where I had to figure out which books I've read by that author (in the past, it was Ann M. Martin and others). With Goodreads, it just made my life easier, minus those Internet Connection Wars. ^_^

~Happy Thursday!

  1. Ah, yes, and because sometimes the Internet eludes us, I think I'll start keeping a written journal, too. Here's MY BTT POST

    1. I used to keep a written journal because it was required but not really any more.

    1. Same here. I started Bookwyrming Thoughts to keep track and share my thoughts on books I read. Finding Goodreads was the best though, but that was a few months before I started blogging. ^_^
