So one of my many, many hobbies is reading. I love books. Until recently, I have had a need to own these said books, or collect them if you will. My husband, Jonathan, is much more practical than I am in this regard since we own a Kindle, and he likes to save money. I would like to own both formats of the book. One to show off, the other to have stored on a device that I can carry all my books with me and read whenever and wherever I like. Is this just me?
Anyway, he linked me to a post on a website called Lifehacker (one of Jon’s addiction). It had a revelation that one should collect accomplishments instead of objects. Books for example: make a list of books that you read to keep as a collection and accomplishment instead of the books themselves. This saves money, yes, but is still very hard for me to deal with since I love having the real book in my hand, too. However… I am willing to give this a try. It will also allow me to connect with people that have read the same books, or give recommendations or reviews on them.
This being said, I will make a page for just my books that I have read. I am still unsure of how this will all be organized, and I will have to rack my brain to try and recall all the books I have read throughout my life (I wasn’t very social my last years of high school). And so it begins…
