I'm lucky, because I'm constantly exposed to books. I get to open boxes of brand new books, see what books other people are reading, and talk to other book lovers every. single. day.
Even so, sometimes my book pile starts to look a little too short, and I need ideas. If I'm not in the mood for yet another Rhys Bowen or D.E. Stevenson (hehe), I turn to my book book.
(This box originally held a series of children's paperbacks. I've been meaning to cover it with scrapbooking paper or fabric or something to make it prettier, but...well, you know how that goes.)
Inside, I keep all the book reviews I've torn out of magazines and all the notes I've scribbled at work when a book catches my eye or someone recommends a title. I also have a list of all the Persephone titles folded up in there.
I used to keep a list of books to read in a little notebook, then I went to a spreadsheet, but I like this method best. Not only is it perfect for someone prone to procrastination, but it's also fun to sift through all the slips of paper when I'm looking for a good read.
How do you keep track of books you want to read?
