Monday Musings, September 22
Happy first day of Fall! Today’s musings post pretty much wrote itself. I’ve been keeping a booklog for many years, but basically I only tracked title, author, date started and finished, and format. There was a neat post on Book Riot about tracking your reading, and they linked to a Google doc template for a hugely informative booklog. Out of curiosity, I downloaded it and started filling it in.
I learned a few things immediately. First of all, I predominantly read female authors. As in, probably 85% at least of my reading is female authors. I didn’t clue into that until I started working with the spreadsheet! Also, I found out that I read a lot more young adult than I thought. And, I found out that I read mostly books that I’ve gotten free in one way or another (library, NetGalley, comp copies, etc.)–in the first 20 books that I read, I only had three books that I purchased.
Do any of you track your books in a similar fashion? Anybody use a spreadsheet like this? Any neat revelations about your reading patterns? Chime in and let me know!
