Most books I rent from the library. I rent instead of buying because I receive a lot of satisfaction knowing more people will be able to enjoy the book. It also saves lots of space because I tend to read books quickly and my book cases would soon be full.
I use this little booklet with lettered tabs to keep track of books I’ve read. These booklets come in the back of some moleskin notebooks and their original purpose was probably intended for phone numbers. I organize the books by the author’s last name.
Under the title and author’s name I write a short one sentence description about the book and if it was an enjoyable read.
Currently I am reading “A Thousand Splendid Suns“. I am almost half way through and I am really enjoying it. Most of the time I check out 2-3 books from the library and then wait till they are all returned to get more out. If I don’t like the book when I get home I return it before I get another.
What are you reading now, any suggestions? Next read for me is going to be “Born to Run“, it has been on my reading list for awhile now.
