My Reading Log

20 Jul

I filled up my reading log this week. I started this one in June 2011. Four years worth of reading.

I don’t make annotations, I just record the title and author.  The pictures are a bit fuzzy, but the first book is The Luck of the Buttons by Anne Ylvisaker and the last one is 5 to 1  by Holly Bodger.

There are 980 books listed.

People keep track of their in different ways. Some people like to write a description and/or rate the book.Some keep track online in either something of their own creation, or on a site like Goodreads.

I like using a Moleskine. Since I fit four years worth of books into this one, it seems to be the right size. I have a smaller one that I am using to lee track of my Morris reading, and I am making annotations about those books in that one.

Two years ago, I shared my reading log in a speech I gave, modeling the speech we were asking our 4th graders to do. There was an avid reader in that group and she asked to see my notebook. She caressed the pages as if it were a treasure trove, which, in a way, it is. She asked for one for Christmas and started keeping her own log.

The funny thing is, although I don’t write anything other than the title & author, as I peruse the pages, I remember each book. And that is all I hoped to accomplish.
