Just discover I had a Goodreads account, started and abandoned in 2010. I’ve be finding that I am not recalling the titles of books I read on kindle and thinking about making some tracking notes. I’ll give this another go.

@johnjohnston Same „problem“ for me: reading books, not remembering too much. Made me start using notebooks some years ago, doing excerpts (mainly for nonfiction). Also helps when I stop reading a book for a while. Not remebering has a great pro: you can read the book again :)

@kulturnation yep I regularly read again due to memory failure. Like to re-watch movies too. I think I need a digital solution. Lose notebooks and horrible scribbles I am afraid.

@johnjohnston Digital or analog - whatever works best. As a digital tool I use Bookpedia (Pocketpedia on iOS) with a list of books I bought since 2010. Helps to prevent buying a book twice :D

@johnjohnston I really like using Goodreads. Although as a spare I also keep just a simple list. www.baty.net/books/

@johnjohnston I use Goodreads, works well when linked with my Kindle. I’m exploring ways of keeping it linked to my site as well. At the moment the RSS feed from my Read shelf, is connected to ifttt to create a draft post. Not done anything with it yet though.

@jack I like the simple list. It is a long and deep one too. I didn’t realise there was so much to think about with this.

@philbowell I like the idea of automatic posting. Need to look at how kindle keeps records. I share an account with my wife so that might keep me manual.
