kris’ good reads expedition: diary entry 2

As I roamed the Land of Good Reads randomly adding books to my page from other people’s lists, it suddenly occurred to me…

… should these shelves relflect the books I own now or should they include books I’ve read and, better yet, have actually remembered what I thought of ’em?

If it’s meant to be the former I have some serious editting to do.

    See? I'm not going there. I don't want to remember everything I've read. Blah. Too much work. I think I'll go update my Facebook to say how I'm never joining Good Reads. LOL

  2. Okay, I think I have an account on Goodreads, but wow, I'm a bit daunted! Like I don't have a billion things to do already. But someday maybe I will take my inspiration from you and go for it. Let us know when you figure it out!

    Good luck on your expedition!!!!

  3. Tracy says:

    I've added books that I've read in the past and added my ratings – whether I still own the book or not.

  4. I have all the books I have read, which total 1000. Can you imagine me having 1000 books lying around?

  5. Kris says:

    Tam: Smart arse. I still say that if you were really my friend you would do it with me. 😦

    CJ: Ummm, you're using me as inspiration and to help you decide what to do eventually?? O_o Be it on your head, Mate. Just sayin'.

  6. Kris says:

    Tracy: Okay. I'm convinced. I will soldier on as I've been doing.

    KB: Is that a trick question??

  7. K. Z. Snow says:

    The Mad Hatter is one of my most favorite characters in all of fiction!

    What was the question again?

  8. Me trick you? *blink blink*

  9. Kris says:

    K Z: *snort* As if you give a toss about the question.

    KB: Yes, tricksy. You sleep on a mattress of books – princess and the pea like – I'm sure. πŸ™‚

  10. Lily says:

    Most of the books I've listed so far are books I still have. I did add a few I don't have any longer as I saw them on friends list.

  11. orannia says:

    Hmmmm. Library Thing lists all the books I've read since January 2008…the thought of putting them all on again… *shakes head* Maybe I might use GoodReads for my 2010 books?

    I don't know GoodReads at all Kris, but is it possible to separate your books into those read and those to be read? Just a thought πŸ™‚ Good luck!

  12. Ingrid says:

    I don't own a lot of books.

    Most of the books I have read came from the library and they are so many I can't even remember reading them.

  13. Kris says:

    Lily: I think that's pretty much how I added my read-but-not-haves.

    Orannia: Yep, you can do that. I've been doing that cos I figured it's easier adding the buggers now than trying to find them later. πŸ˜‰

    Ingrid: I'm using book covers as prompts. Kind of like “Oh, that. Yeah, I read that. It was okay.” thing.

  14. Ingrid says:

    Kris, that sounds like an idea but a lot of books I read were in translation and they change the covers most times.

  15. jitterbug says:

    Kris, what have you got yourself into? It sounds positively nightmarish! I wouldn't know where to begin. Should I put online my Hardy Boys collection too? And what about all the books I've bought over the years because they were ΓΌber-cheap but a) I've mostly never read and anyway b) are now falling to pieces? And the books I've read but I don't own. Decisions, decisions!

    No, all things considered I think I'll stand on the sidelines and see how you fare ;).

  16. Kris says:

    Ingrid: Tell me about it. At the moment, I'm trawling through Aussie, US and UK covers. It's hellish.

    Sara: *wailing* I don't know! It's Richelle's fault. She made me. 😦

    “No, all things considered I think I'll stand on the sidelines and see how you fare ;).”

    Gee thanks. *mutter, mutter*

  17. Tracy says:

    orannia – if you have your books catalogued say on a spreadsheet I think you can import them. I'm not that organized so I just did as many books as I could remember when I first got on and now just add as I read.

    Kris – I'm sure you're doing a fine job.

    KB – how's that book mattress working out for ya?

  18. Tracy: Tis very lumpy. more books came today to add to my mattress 'o' books

  19. Kris says:

    Tracy: Well, at least one of us is.

    KB: See, I knew you really had all those books in your room. πŸ˜‰
