KEEPING TRACK OF BOOK CLUB BOOKS

How does your book group keep track of what you've read?  Does your group have a special system?  Well, over the last 13 years or so, my book group is forever trying to recall the many books we have read together.  We just never took the time to write them all down, but we always wish we had kept track.   

And the years marched on.  

That is at least 150 titles, and who could remember all of those without some sort of a system?  

So, for our last book group gathering, I made a little book tracking system for each of us.  It won't go back all those years, but there is a card labeled "aforetime" for some of our favorites from years past.
All of the cards fit neatly in a little folder made of cream card stock.
 The cover reads, "Books we've enjoyed and some we've endured!" and is made with this Sweet Birds With Nest Frame graphic from The Graphics Fairy.
(The font used is a mix of "typewriter" which is on my word processing program, and "The King and Queen" which can be downloaded free of charge here.)

The whole packet slips into a heavy weight gray wool case with plenty of room for more cards - for the years to come.
Now we have no excuse!

I love this project. It will motivate me to read and keep track. Malaysian are non reading nation with average of 1 page reading annually. After hearing this few days ago, I was motivated to start reading more frequently. I grabbed few books from a book fair yesterday and started reading right away.Previous years,I read 2-3 books a year and I target to read 12 books this year.
