What do y’all use for book logging.
I use Goodreads and LibraryThing.
I assume you mean keeping track of books? I am very low tech–I use my noggin. 😁
And sometimes but the same book twice!
@Linda I am very cautious in the bookstores–I write the book titles down and go home and look. 🙂
I did that at one time. Don’t know why I stopped.
Goodreads. Free, and easy to use. Love that I can scan books in quickly, and my Kindle books automatically get recorded.
@Valerie and you can buy from many outlets right from the site. I often look up the prices of different media and used. Love it.
I use a notebook, divided alphabetically. Then back few pages is wish list
Goodreads, librarything, & Calibre to an extent, at least as far as ebooks go.
Excel spreadsheet. I have tabs for the past few years that I use to keep track of the books I’ve read that year, then I have a Library tab that I have sorted by author that I add the book to if I decide to keep it so I know what books I have.
Goodreads and a notebook
I just use GoodReads
Goodreads, notebook and index cards for each author.
-Goodreads for overall digital records of what I’ve read and when plus quick 1-5* rating… and tbr list -Reading journal each year, one section is the Booklog and the other section is the Commonplace for quotes and any comments/thoughts/questions I want to remember -Still looking for how I want to keep track of what I own
Many views and also on computer it turns into a calendar etc x
Goodreads for what I read. !55 books so far this year. Google sheets for inventory since I own over 4000 books in hardcover. It posts on the cloud so it is on all of my devices as I do data entry. I also use Google sheets for challenges. I am doing 7 challenges currently so all this info is on my phone when I am shopping although I do entry on a laptop or tablet.
GoodReads, Bookly, BookBuddy+, personal notebook.
Goodreads…. But I steer clear of the reviews before reading. If I read something negative it colors my thoughts on the book and it’s always slow going.
I have too many books for anything but an expensive professional catalogue system. Super annoying.
I just write on apple notes, always in the same one
I have a library app on my tablet
Pen and paper.
A notebook that I been using since 2002 and Goodreads.
I have a notebook that is alphabetized by author – I read all mystery/thriller etc so use http://stopyourekillingme.com/ for my authors and print the page. This way I can read in order as written. When I get a book I mark the title with a / and then after I read it I make it into a X. I usually have the notebook with me because I have purchased same book more than once.
@Joan this is awesome!!!
Just chronological order, microsoft excel file. Date, Author, title, number pages.
I bought a wonderful journal on Amazon for $6. If is made for keeping track of books and reviews specifically I love it. I will invest in a New one later this year when this one is filled up.
Goodreads and a little journal titled “Books I’ve read”.
Book logging is a new term
Goodreads but not very thrilled with it.
Why aren’t you thrilled???
@Ivy it isn’t the same as it used to be. I preferred the pre-Amazon GR.
Goodreads and a journal
Pinterest, goodreads, notebook
Goodreads- plus spreadsheet
I keep a journal, orgnanized in alphabetical order by author’s last name as well as Goodreads. I like a hard copy that I can look at when at book club or just remember all the great books I have read.
Good reads- then give them away as I finish reading.
You are my reading twin!
Goodreads mostly but I have a journal with titles of books I need to complete a series so I can read them in order.
I use Pinterest. I have a board called Books Read – 2019 and I pin the Amazon link there when I finish the book.
OneNote. And I reference where the books are kept.
I write in a journal every day, have done for many years!
3 ring notebook.
Just my memory.
I two notebooks one is to keep track of my start dates and when my library books are due. The other one is to keep track of the ones I have finished. I also use Good reads and Pinterest. Good reads to keep track of my ever expanding tbr and I like to do the reading challenge for the year. I have two Pinterest boards that I am constantly adding to. The first one is Books that look interesting sometimes I can find books that my library has and read that book and my second board Books that I love is where I put the books that I have read and liked.
I have a book journal that I keep each year to record the books I read and to write down thoughts or quotes if there is something I want to remember.
I have a book journal and also use Goodreads
A database on my computer by author’s last name.
I use Goodreads and an app called My Library. My Library lets me add all my books so that when I’m at a store or thrift shop. I can instantly see if I already have it. Sure illuminates duplicate books…
Goodreads does all I need.
I created a file on my laptop that can be sorted by author or title.
I keep a list on my phone.
Goodreads and a bullet journal just for reading.
@Renee I use this one as well. It’s a great app. I’ve even listed DVDs I want to see. Ha!
I have a record of every book read since I was 13.
@Jan And mine is since I’m 9 and I’m May I will be 72z
Journal and goodreads
My blog, Goodreads & a notebook.
http://librarything.com/ – it is connected to Goodreads and Amazon.
I don`t keep a library log, but maybe I should start one, but the library in my city keeps track of the books, DVD`s and CD`s that I want to borrow once I unfreeze the holds that I want to come to my nearby library, by now my librarians got used to my system of having a to be read reading list, as they keep track and ask me about it every so often. Now they know how I keep track of my materials at the library, and that I only leave a limit of five library items at any given time out on my library card so that I can borrow most items for three weeks and DVD`s for one week with possible renewals if no one`s waiting for an item I borrowed and brought home with me. When I go out for coffee, I read a library book or my own book from home or color in my adult coloring sheets or adult coloring book, hoping the restuarant has the radio turned on while I keep busy, and this helps pass the time much more quickly. I also do Sudoku or word search puzzles (the mini versions), I read the word or number and when I find it and finish, I move on to the next ones (if I don`t bring a book with me to read).
@Lonetta one of the book stores I go to Copperfish Books in Punta Gorda, Florida enters every book you purchase in their computer and if you buy it again they tell you that you already have it. However I have over 100 books I bought from other places. 😆 😝
Goodreads….love it for logging, finding our what friends are reading and also getting recommendations….great site
Goodreads and Litsy
Goodreads for my want to read but I’m awful at updating my read list! 🤓
Goodreads and an old fashioned spiral notebook.
I have a file with re-fillable pages and have them alphabetically under authors names . I then score through with high-lighter pens when read.
Notebook and pen
I have composition books that I log the books in. It started when I started a book and realized I had read it before. I write down the title, author, where I got it from, whether it is mystery or fiction or nonfiction, and I rate the book from 4 stars (outstanding) to ‘bomb’. I later started writing a few lines about the script and what I felt about it. I’m on my second notebook since around 1986.
I’ve read about 920 books in the notes. I later put the author and title in a computer file
I catalogue mine on http://librarything.com/ as I get them. And Amazon has started something really nice – while I keep a “Books Read” collection on my kindle, they have started marking the books you have read as “Read” in the upper right hand corner.
I don’t do it. Seems like it would make reading a chore instead of the simple pleasure I find it to be
I thought I was the only one that did that. That makes me feel a lot better.
I write the date, author, title, how many pages, and I judge with check marks. 0 I will never read it again and 3 checks it made an impression
Goodreads. I can’t trust my memory anymore!
Goodreads helps me
GoodReads too! It’s great and has contests for book giveaways!
Just started using goodreads
Goodreads, notepad on my phone
I have a notebook. Front is alphabetical with author and book at back is my wish list and keep track of new releases for series im following
I use good reads and note book diary
One of my Christmas presents every year is a little diary that my best mate knows I use to record all my reading for that year. Then, in January, I transfer all of that info onto a spreadsheet. I’ve only been doing it for a few years but it’s a great way to keep track 🙂
