Lists, Lists, Lists

Trading comments back and forth tonight on Facebook with a dear friend.  She shared a book she just read and how much she liked it.  Her post reminded me that I wanted to read that book AGES ago!  It's a very popular one: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.  It's almost always checked out or on hold at my library, so I finally put it on hold for myself.

This got me thinking: I keep a record of books I've read, so why don't I keep a list of books I WANT to read?  I know there are dozens of books out there that have slipped through my fingers because I didn't have time to read them at the time I saw them.

It's an occupational hazard.

Going forward, time to get started on my new list: Books I Want to Read!

I love Goodreads for that idea. It's a great place to store the books I want to read and remember what I've read. The only downside to Goodreads is that there are so many books that interest me that are not on the downloadable ebooks from either my local or the Kansas City Public Library and then I have to decide whether or not I want to read a book the old fashioned way. I'm getting very used to my backlit Nook! :)

I've been tempted to read this so many times. So. What's the verdict? Recommend?

Hope things are better for you, Elaine.
