In the "old days", you could only make your lists via a spreadsheet program or table within a text document. I wanted to keep track of my books, especially ones that I had that were signed or special edition for some reason.
I stumbled across a new website in my search for information on how to blog. www.goodreads.com
As someone who LOVES making lists (I know, weird, huh?), I used a spreadsheet for everything; books, movies, addresses, etc. I found that while different programs have come and gone, you can always transfer or import using a .csv file. I really love how easy this site is to use.
1. First, you must create an account to start. It was VERY simple. I used my existed gmail account and added my name and password. That's it.
2. It also allows you to add friends by uploading your address book. I skipped this step.
3. You can of course just move forward and record books.
They have 2 other options that I have not tried just yet. To upload from your Amazon wish list and worse come to worse - to simply add a new title manually.
I have started the task of adding my insane list of books that I have already read, but you could just start fresh with what you reading now.
It also gives the option of seeing and sharing reviews of your friends, joining book discussions, reading reviews and more. It is a neat system. I figured that I would post mine for you via a widget they offer. I have made a pledge on their website to read 20 books this year. You can select any number you want and it tracks your progress.
Enjoy a good book!
