My father gave me a fabulous idea! He uses a small address book to write down the names of authors he wants to read and lists their books.
It is his book tracking system. I thought it clever because I have so many sheets of paper from book lists tucked here, there and everywhere. I have more than a few memos in my Palm that lists books/authors. I have those MS Outlook post it notes with book titles. I have journal entries that list books I want to read someday. Especially from the Book Section of the Sunday Paper… Journalling is not the best method for tracking the future!
So, I found some byooootiful colorful fancy address books on a clearance table somewhere and gave them as gifts for this specific purpose. I met friends for a Holiday Celebration dinner and we enjoyed a fun time thinking up our favorite authors and each of us writing in our new tracking system books; sharing laughing and teasing “you’ve never read any _______?!”
So, in addition to HERE — this blog is my newest tracking system, I also have a physicial travel-able source to use when (at the library…) I’m away from the computer. Like when I’m at the library and I’m overwhelmed with so many choices… THANKS DAD!
