New! and Improved! Bookshelf!

Diamond Brides

Once upon a time, I kept track of the books that I read during each year, using the blog Category “Bookshelf”.  Those posts were always a bit annoying for me to write, due to the quirks of WordPress software (which insisted on eating my Bookshelf posts far more often than it did any other post I made.)

This year, I’ve been doing something a bit different — I’ve been keeping my Books Read record in Pinterest.  That gives me a chance to track the information *and* to share  cool book covers with anyone who’s interested.  So, if you want to see what I’ve been up to on the book front, here’s the board:

http://www.pinterest.com/mindyklasky/books-read-in-2014/

(As usual, I don’t list books that I didn’t finish — most of those are discarded by the first 10% (although I just ditched one read at 50%, because I could tell absolutely everything that was going to happen in it!)  For the Pinterest board, I’ve started listing books that I’ve read in draft form, if I’ve read them in their entirety, but I’ve only listed them as “Super Secret Advance Reader Copy”, so that the author can change the name of his/her book at the same time that she changes everything else about the book.  Finally, if I read an Advance Reader Copy to blurb it, I’ve given the name, because I’m pretty sure it won’t be changing at this relatively late date :-) )

So?  Have you read any of the books I did?  What great books have you read in the first half of 2014?

I haven't read any of those yet, although Jeri's book is on my TBR shelf. and what a great idea! I keep meaning to blog about the great books I've read, but haven't done it since last year...

Yeah, I'm not sure why it was so hard to get going with the posting this year! (I like doing it this way, not worrying about editorial comments...)

My reason is probably the same as yours? LIFE (and just plain too much to do and not enough time to do it).
