The newest issue of Booklist contains an excellent article by well-known Reader’s Advisor Joyce Saricks. In it, she talks about how important it is that you keep a list of all the books you read each year; nothing fancy – just author and title. She has been doing this for years and enjoys revisiting her past reads.
I am currently in the middle of facilitating one of Basic Skills Reader’s Advisory classes and I would agree with Ms. Saricks. To be a good RA, it’s important to read (hopefully, WIDELY) and keeping a list helps you remember.
I keep my list on Goodreads and the joy of that is they send me a link at the end of the year with my entire list on it and I, too, can relive what I have read. Additionally, every month or so, they recommend titles I might enjoy based upon what I have on my list. It’s a win-win situation!
