Hi Everyone!

Happy New Year! I have decided this year to track the books I have read. I haven't been doing that in the past and have no idea how many I read in 2007.  I want to sign up for the Book Journal on PBS to support the site, but I'm on the fence on if I really will use it.   If there is anyone out that that uses the Book Journal, can you let me know how you like it??

The only thing I use it for is to keep track of where my posted books are.  I have a few different places I keep them, so it is very useful that I can see that the requested book is in Tote #1 or the green bag...etc. 

I am planning on journaling each book I read this year too, so I am going to play around with my book journal this weekend.

I have an Excel spreadsheet that I set up, so it's really easy to add a book after you've finished it.

I haven't used the book journal here although I probably will eventually. At this time  I use www.shelfari.com and I really like it. :)
