Did you ever try to keep a reading diary?

I did, but it didn't last long. I recently found small a spiral notebook in which I had tried to keep a reading diary. It lasted for a few months. But during early 1998 I was reading A Knickerbocker's History of New York and a collection of M.R. James ghost stories. I was also attempting to read the Old Testament. It looks like I made it to Isaiah.

I might use the blog to note books that I've just finished, but I don't like to talk too much about books I'm currently reading, because it seems to always jinx me.

  1. Wow, I couldn't make it to Isaiah without skipping. All the rules and regulations in the Old Testament read like, well, like legal texts.

    I've never kept a reading log, but I have tried to keep a diary--ahem [assumes man-voice], I mean, journal. But, I just couldn't stick to it, for some reason. I guess it just wasn't fun.

    Blogging, on the other hand, is fun.
