Hello, and welcome back! Today I am back with another Tag post! I recently saw this tag and it looked fun so I decided to join in!
1. Do you keep a list of the books you have read?
I used Goodreads to track which books I’ve read. I find it is really convenient to just log everything on Goodreads. I’ve yet to find a way to keep track of books that I’ve liked. I’m thinking doing a digital book journal would be really cool an a way that might work for me. I’ve tried in my bujo but it doesn’t work the way I would like it to.
2. If you record statistics, what statistics do you record?
I am actually working on making my own spreedsheet. I’ve tried to use some others but they don’t track all of the things I would like to so I figured I would use my own. It’s really weird to be making my own spreedsheet since I haven’t used any of those skills in a really long time.
3. Do you give star ratings for books and if so, what do you score books out of and how do you come about this score?
I do use a star rating scale but I don’t really know how to rate books that well so I go based on my feelings so I feel like it’s more for myself than for others.
4. Do you review books?
Yesssss?!?!? I am actually working on making a template or guide so I can be better at writing up reviews. Honestly, I’m kind of overwhelmed with how many books I’ve read so far and where to start for my reviews. I’m at 202 books so I really don’t know where to start. I am hoping to get it ironed out though for next year and to make reviewing in a pinch easy.
5. Where do you put your finished books?
I mostly read digitally so most stay on my kindle unless it was borrowed. If I do read a book I own it usually goes back on my shelf which is not organized in anyway. I don’t own many so it doesn’t bother me to much. I’m hoping when I have more space to organize and expand my collection but alas not yet.
6. Do you have any other rituals for when you have finished a book?
No not really. I am hoping to like I mentioned above create a template for reviews that I can scrawl notes of when I finish a book. I do try to start or at least pick out my next book the same day. I’ve noticed that if I don’t at least pick a book that I won’t pick one up for a bit so I try to keep my interest by always having a next in line book.
If you haven’t done this tag and would like to please feel free! It was a lot of fun! A lot of people have been doing this one recently so I didn’t want to tag anyone but consider yourself tagged if you want to be!
