Read and read more

Jumping on the book list bandwagon, I posted lists of my own 2005 reads and 2006 reading goals to my non kid-lit weblog, because, as I was compiling them, I thought there might end up being more "grown-up" titles than juvenile/young adult. There weren't (well, of course there weren't!), but they're staying put anyway.

Hi Jamie,
Thanks for posting your book lists. You actually inspired me to take a site where I've been maintaining lists of books that I have read, and want to read, and make the site public. I got some ideas from your 2006 list, too. Thanks!

Hey Jamie,
I am reading your other blog and was struck by the idea of keeping a list of the books I read. We had a family friend who kept notebooks where she listed each book she read. She had over 60 years worth of note books. Keeping a log on the computer does not take up so much space but it is not nearly as impressive.

I think I will do this in 2006.

Jen--hey, great blog! I'm so glad you posted, as I love a new children's book blog to add to my bookmarks (and links!) And wow, you have some serious lists going, very ambitious. :)

Camille--What a nead idea. How many notebooks did she fill (or has filled to date)... do you know? I'd be curious. The computer sure is convenient, but a stack of notebooks seems more personal somehow. Maybe I'll start doing that myself; I have a whole bunch of blank journals, empty thanks to (what else?) the computer--I was never very good about keeping a journal on paper because I could type much faster than write and my thoughts would get ahead of me.
