Most people have a books they want to read list. I have a books I’ve already read list.
A couple years ago, I got a mini grey journal for Christmas and since it wasn’t big enough to be an actual journal, I decided to use it as a record of the books I read during the year. I’m rather bad at it, sometimes I forget to record the last few books I’ve read or so and I have to go into Goodreads to see which ones I did read.
Anyway, I think it’s a good idea, because it’s nice to know what I’ve read in one year. It’s also kind of inhibiting in its own way because then I feel pressure to read and if you don’t know me, then I stop reading at all when I feel pressured to do so.
But what I wanted to write about is a to read list. I think that would be a good idea to do so. Of course, I have a (huge) to read list on Goodreads, but I have books on there since 2008 and I don’t even remember have them.
So maybe if I actually had a notebook to write down books I want to read, then it would actually help me focus on reading.
