Being that I’m a list person, this project sounds like a lot of fun!
I gave my son a book that allows him to write down all the books he’s read and what he liked (or didn’t like) about them. I was SO excited to give it to him.
Well, he had zero interest in it. Didn’t even give it a second glance.
I see it on the shelf, and I covet it. I didn’t get it for him. I mean, I did. But I got it because I thought it was cool. If I had though about it for a couple minutes longer, I would have realized that the book appealed to me, not to him.
Instead of getting a book where I list all the books I’ve read, I’ve been chronicling my books on my family blog. Eventually I will have to put them all in one place though. Because I’m starting to forget what I’ve read, or at least, which book is which. And those blog entries get buried.
I really like books. And I like making lists. Looking at lists. And talking about my lists. I’m really the only one in the family that’s so obsessive about it. But I’ve caught my hubby and my son using lists here and there. They don’t like to admit it though. They are more than happy to let the list making belong to me.
Maybe one of my daughters will grow to like lists too? And we can have list-making parties. Book-reading-list-making-discussion group?
Do you keep track of books you’ve read? Why or why not? Do your kids enjoy keeping track of what they’ve read?
