How do you keep track of them all?

I've been reading since I was young, and I've only recently (within the past 2 years) started to keep track of my book reading habits. I started out by just posting an entry in my Paperbackswap page, and updating it everytime I finish a book. Now I've gone so far as to start a book reviewing site, where I review the books that I've read, and that I continue to read. So far, this is my favorite tactic at remembering what I have read in the past. It's a great way to relive your reading experience without having to re-read a book! Now, in the years to come, I can go back and read my past reviews, and remember how I felt the day that I read each book. So, MyLotters, and fellow bookaholics, how do you keep track of all the books you read?

Hi Jenni, I keep a list of the books in my collection, and those I've read and given away/sold. This is to ensure that I don't buy a book I already have or read. Your way of remembering books through writing reviews is great! I'm just too lazy to write - so most likely would re-read the books again.

I used to write lists and keep them on my blog. I would have read about 150 books per year! And I would just keep track of the titles and authors. Now that I'm thinking about it (and re-reading through the list), it would have been wise to write down a quick synopsis and review of it as well - considering I'm reading through my list and I can't seem to think of what some of these books were even about. lol. Oh well I guess! It sounds like you have a good idea, there, and I might have to steal that. And by the way, what is Paperback Swap? Is that similar to BookMooch?
