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 just started keeping track last year, because I wanted to see how many books in a year I actually read. I figured it had to be a lot, since I go through them pretty quickly and am never without a book. I started using GoodReads, and it's okay I guess. I keep my TBR list in there, and have just started copying and pasting my reviews as well. I then started to add books I read in the past, like several years ago. When I think of something, I add it.
I haven't explored Shelfari or Library Thing so I'm not sure if these are any better. However, the thought of having to re-do everything or starting from scratch is a bit unnerving. Also, Good Reads is free which enables me to buy more books or yarn. The Internet is too big not to find something that is free.
I realize, now, that since I started this book blog around the New Year, I can use it to keep track of my reading. We'll see what happens when I create the "2009 Year in Review post", if I've done a good job tracking and what not :)
So how about you? Do you keep track or not? Or are you afraid to?
