A new year, new reading resolutions.

Yup, I'm at least two weeks too late with this post. That's about how much of 2013 went (what? It's Christmas already?) and it looks like that's the way 2014 is going to go as well (what? It's mid-January already?). But, I figure, better late than never.

I'm not actually going to bother making many reading resolutions. (Or any resolutions: Had I actually pledged to "eat less" and "do some exercising," I'd already be failing. We were caught in a Polar Vortex! I need to eat to keep up my layer of insulating blubber!) What I am going to do is make a "tracking reading" resolution: this year I'm going to try and keep track of the books I read and skim in a spreadsheet. In some of the blogs I read regularly, I notice that a lot of people keep track of information about what they're reading, and it's kind of neat to get that perspective. Whether or not I'll be able to keep it up is debatable: I have always hated Excel and, my degree in Library Science notwithstanding, I'm not really very detail-oriented or good at organizing things. Don't tell any of my future potential employers, okay?

So I'll let you know how it goes. In the meantime, if you track your reading, either in a spreadsheet or some other way, what kind of information do you track?
