book lists?

How do you keep track of the books you've read or want to read?  I have Amazon (and now Shelfari and Goodreads) to keep track of what I want to read.  And I use them to remember what I have read as well.  I had been keeping a word document of all the books I'd read since freshman year of college, but now I can't find it.  I transfered it into my Goodreads/Shelfari accounts already, but I still loved to look at the list organized by year.  I'm afraid I accidently deleted it in a housekeeping frenzy to free-up some computer space.  Boo.  Oh well!  

Do you keep lists of the books you've read/want to read?  I'm thinking of starting some kind of reading journal or log.  Does anyone do that?

I normally bookmark the amazon page and then when I find something else that puts me over the edge I'll throw it in my cart - which works well cause I use my husbands account...hehe

I usually write them down in a notepad. Thatz way it's easier for me to take it along with me when i visit the local bookstore. But i don't really keep the notes once i purchased the books. I really like your idea of starting a reading journal. I also think it will help you with posts ideas for your blog espcially on days when you totally out of idea on what to blog about. :)
Have a lovely merry happy day and love to you!

goodreads! i dont think it's the best designed out there, but since i spent about 3 full days finding every single book ive ever read on there and adding it onto my list, im going to stay there for awhile. plus all my well read friends are on, so i get to see what they read, add the ones that interest me, and the site's been helpful in my book club endeavors. be my friend on goodreads- my name on there is cindy c from seattle, wa. :) i always love meeting another book lover

maybe you can start another blog all about your lists of books?

I still have the list I started in London in my Muji notebook of Books to Read, along with Movies to Watch. The progress has been minimal since I'm still working on reading all the books I own.
