I found this:
It’s my fourth grade Reading Journal. Basically, our assignment was to keep track of the books we were reading, write a little about what was happening in the story, and then our [amazing, wonderful, one of my favorites ever] teacher would read them, make a comment or ask a question and hand them back to us. Of course, I remember loving Reading Journal time. I mean, a specific time devoted to writing about the books we were reading!? Who wouldn’t love that? (I don’t think I even realized this might be a horrible assignment for some kids)
I can remember many of the books that are documented in that journal, but of course, I’ve forgotten many too. Which brings me to my next point: I wish I had recorded all of the books I’ve read throughout the years. How neat would that be to go back and see what I’ve read?

In 2008, I joined the free website: goodreads.com
I love goodreads because it allows me to not only keep track of the books I’ve read, rate them, and write a brief review of them, but it also allows me to categorize them, mark books I’d like to read, view what my friends are reading (although some of you don’t ever update and I wish you would!) and read reviews that others have written. It also recommends books for me based on books that I have enjoyed. I just LOVE this site! There have been quite a few times where I have logged in to jog my memory about a book I read, an author I enjoyed, or find a recommendation for a friend. And for this reason, I’m so glad I’ve been writing them down. (I think you can see my goodreads site here: http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/1258160-karah)
