Have you ever kept a diary or list of the books you have read? How did you organize it?
So many times, I tell someone about a book that I know they would like or find useful, but I can't remember the exact title or author. Also I'm wondering how many of the books I read are really interesting or useful.
No, I keep all my books in book cases, of which I have several. All the books are categorized and easily accessible, so if someone asks me a question about one of them, I know exactly where to find it. And since I am an author and a memoirist, I can usually recall when I read it and details concerning the reading of it.
Yes, I have a list of previous Book Club reads which is a diverse collection! They are kept in alphabetical order of authors.
My own books are organised by subject; children's fiction, adult fiction, geography, history, nature etc... Then I tend to put them in order of how much I like them!
As far as interesting or useful goes, that is entirely subjective. What's fascinating to one is of no interest to another and vice versa. Thank goodness for individuality!
I keep a list of titles and authors in a Word document as a redundancy because I also am on goodreads.com, which lets you keep a list of all the books you've read as wells as options on how to categorize and keep track of them. I recommend it.
No, but I did start to record the books I've read on Goodreads. Gradually writing reviews etc. Sometimes I remember a book of old that I have not registered. Then I go on there to put it down. Over a period of time, you can get a good idea of how many novels you have read.
I reviewed books for over 7 years, so I came up with a couple of different ways to keep my book lists organized. GoodReads.com is a great site for that. I also have a spreadsheet on my computer that I used to keep track of what I read and when, as well as any books I purchased or received for review. Doing that didn't tell me where a book was in my house, but it at least let me keep a couple of aspects of my reading a bit more organized.
