My reading pace varies, but I usually finish between three and twelve books per month. I’ve gone through phases in my life where I record at least the title and author of every book, and since I started blogging seven years ago, I’ve kept that up.
I’ve never written a review or even jotted notes about every single book, though. I write blog posts only about the ones where I feel I have significant things to say. In these years of blogging, though, I’ve realized that I remember the books I write about much better than the ones I don’t. When I do not record any of my thoughts or responses, they get foggy and soon fade.
So I’d like to change that, even though I don’t always have the time or the inspriation to write a full post. I’m making it a resolution this year to write at least a short note in Goodreads about every book. I can then link to these from my monthly review posts and interested readers will be able to read my impressions. And I hope this will help to jog my memory too, when I’m looking back on what I read this year.
Here’s my Goodreads account, if you’d like to follow me (I’m happy to do likewise). And please let me know how you keep track of your own reading. Do you write about every book? If so, how do you manage it? If not, how do you choose? Are you happy with what you’re doing?
