I am wondering how you maintain the list of books you want to read. I was chatting with my local librarian about this topic this morning when I dropped off some books. She'd just heard an idea: put the names of all of them in a jar and when you need a book, draw one out at a random. Interesting thought! She keeps her list in her library account, which has a digital place where you can put in lists and organize them, but that is now 20 pages long, so she can't manage it anymore. I have a typed list that I keep adding to. I organize them by recommendation source or topically ... for example, I have lists of recommendations from my reading pals Mary and Rene; and I have a list I call ":adventures" which are true stories of wilderness adventures. And now I have a bunch of published lists stapled to the back of that printed list. But my sub-categories are insufficient, and, more important, new books keep trumping (45-ing???) books that have been on the list a while.
So, share your process, please! I/we would love to hear new ideas, especially ones that work for you!
