The Finished Books Tag

Finished Book sTag

I haven’t done a book tag in a while but a couple of weeks ago I tagged by Mani @ Mani’s Book Corner to do the Finished Books Tag. Thank you for tagging me!

1. Do you keep a list of the books you have read?

I used Goodreads to track which books I’ve read. I’m trying out The StoryGraph too but I keep forgetting to update it!

2. If you record statistics, what statistics do you record?

I have a spreadsheet where I track a few things about the books I read:

  • Title
  • Author
  • Whether the book is part of a series (and which number in the series it is)
  • Number of pages
  • Genre
  • Classic vs Contemporary
  • Original language
  • Original publication date

3. Do you give star ratings for books and if so, what do you score books out of and how do you come about this score?

I don’t use a rating system anymore! I feel like it’s just easier to say if I’d recommend the book and to who.

4. Do you review books?

I do. Well, I try to. Sometimes it takes me months to review a book but I do get around to it eventually. I don’t review books I’ve abandoned though because that just isn’t fair to the book.

5. Where do you put your finished books?

I just put them back on my bookshelves because my books are arranged by author. If I didn’t enjoy a book then I’ll put it in a box so that I can take it to a charity shop.

6. Do you have any other rituals for when you have finished a book?

I don’t think I do. I just close the book, dwell on it for the rest of the day, and then (hopefully) start a new book the day after.

I’m not going to tag anyone specifically but if you want to do this tag then I am tagging you!

  1. Cool! I’ve never thought of using a spreadsheet, but I really should because by the time I get around to reviewing a book, I often have to go back and flip through the pages just to make sure I spell everything right. Quick question if you get the time: what is story graph?

    1. StoryGraph is like goodreads but it also produces graphs and reading recommendations! It’s in the beta stage at the moment but it looks like a promising alternative to Goodreads 🙂
