It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Keeping track of what you own/read

Have you ever bought a new book and started reading it only to find out not only is it a reprint, you've already read it. Or worse, bought it, read it, gave it away!

How do you keep track of your books? Owned or borrowed?

I remember not being able to sleep one night (3 a.m.) and standing in front of a set of bookshelves wanting a specific book. It had been that long since I had read it and I was sure it was there but no luck. I ended up reading something else when I remembered the book I wanted was a library book. (One reason I don't usually borrow books, I re-read.)

so about six months or so later, I find the book I want at the library's bookstore and take it home. Guess where I put it? On the shelf, right next to the one I couldn't find! Not only had I borrowed it, I bought it and then bought it again!

This is probably more common than you think!

I am a habitual list maker. I have lists for everything, especially my books. I have a list of the books I own, the books I have read last year, the books I have ever read in my life, the reading challenges I am on, lists of books I want to read, and so on and so on. I keep them all on Word documents. I have A.D.D. so if I don't have lists of all of this, I would never remember a thing about my books! (Or anything else for that matter!)
