I have been updating my woefully-neglected list of books read this year and realised that I’ve only just hit the 100 books mark. This time last year, I was forty books ahead.
Oh well. I’m not massively surprised. I certainly felt that I hadn’t been reading as many books this year than I have had in previous years. Partly because I have been rather busy (also reflected in my blogging activity), but also because I have been reading more short stories and novellas (which I don’t usually count – not consistently though) or magazines, as opposed to full-length books.
It was a bit of a massive update because I hadn’t added books to my master list since September. Instead, I’d been adding notes to a Google Docs document (in lieu of an actual notepad), which actually worked quite well in terms of reminding me of my reads.
How do you keep track of books you read? Or rather, do you track them in the first place?
