We read...

To know we are not alone. ~C.S. Lewis~

Much to my chagrin I'm coming late to the MM discussion on keeping track of what and/or how many books you read? How long have you been doing this? What's your favourite tracking method, and why? If you don't keep track, why not?

I'm not even posting it as a MM but my answer would be...that's why I started this blog - becasue I had no way of keeping track of what I've read/want to read.

I do have a couple of comments for Becca (who I know reads this blog even if I don't post to MM). Firstly for a blessed Becca - congrats on the blog awards - and secondly to slightly definition-challenged and a little bit bewildered Becca ..."latent OCD"?

Really?

Pause for a moment and read the definition of latent. Sorry to burst your bubble my friend but what you have is not hidden, buried, concealed, embryonic, underlying, suppressed, undeveloped OCD; but rather where books are concerned what you have is full-blown, unconcealed, explicit, evident, open, plain, blatant, manifest, apparent I-need-to-be-in-control OCD.

Clearly blog-shushing doesn't work on me.

I read this post over an hour ago and I have been sitting here ever since thinking of an appropriate response. Ideas have run the whole range, from simply poking out my tongue at you to laying down a challenge on my own blog and declaring all-out war.

Problem is, I was far too busy laughing to make a decision.

I've got to say though, it was the linking to the definition that really made me lose it. It was the icing on the cake.

Thanks for knowing me well enough to publicly make fun of me :)
