On BTT this week:
Have you ever bought a book, started reading it and then realised you have already read it? If so, how far did you get? (Can you tell this happened to me for the first time ever this week!?!)
I am not sure, but this has happened maybe once? I think it happened with a children’s book since I had read it when I was young and again when I was older.
I am asking myself more than ever if I have read certain books. Mostly poetry and sometimes plays live in this blind spot. Also, I tend to watch a lot of adaptations of books such as TV shows and movies. I try to avoid these until I read the book, unless it’s a book I don’t think I want to read.
The good thing about me is that I am a list maker. This blog was also created in part to track my reading. I also have lists of all the books I have read since 2002. I keep one for movies to. So if I am not sure about a book, I just search for it!
Having a Smart Phone with access to social networking sites for books has helped me out…of course, this assumes I’ve entered the books I’ve read or purchased into it.
Hi Michael! I agree that social media sites like Goodreads really help. I’ve been using a few to track my books and movies too. Thanks for commenting!
I do like how blogging has helped me track books I’ve read….and since 2011, I’ve linked to my reviews on one of my pages. That really helps!
Here’s MY THURSDAY MEMES POST
Hi Laurel-Rain! Blogging is really good for keeping track and motivating you. Also for remember what happened in the books and if I liked it! Thanks for the comment!
Tribute Books Mama
I keep a list of titles read also, it helps.
Hi Tribute Books Mama! I agree that lists help. I do love lists. Thanks for the comment!
The Plot Thickens
It happens, but thankfully not too often.
Hello The Plot Thickens! I agree that this doesn’t happen too often! I also usually don’t buy new books. Thanks!
I am completely list obsessed and it really does come in handy when keeping track of things especially books that you’ve read 🙂 Goodreads and my blog is also a great way of knowing what I’ve previously read.
Hello Rebecca! I love lists as well. It really motivates you and tracks your consumption. I’ve been using Goodreads more and the blog really helps too. Thanks!
