Do You Have a Must Read Book List?

 Inspired by Rebecca at Lost in Books, I am putting together an official “books I really want to read” booklist. That’s just the working title, you understand. I will come up with something infinitely more creative before adding it to the blog.

So many books, so little time!There are so many great books out there that I would love to read and I’m finding more great recommendations on book blogs every day. I’m constantly thinking, “I’ll have to remember that one next time I’m at the library”, but of course I never do.

I already feed my book and list addictions by keeping track of my book collection on a Collectorz.com Book Collector database. I’ve got about a quarter of my books entered so far. I highly recommend this program to anyone who wants to catalogue their books, especially the loan tracker feature on the Pro version. No more “I know I loaned that book to someone…”.

Now I’m going to put together a must read list – classics, contemporary, children’s books, non-fiction.

So that I don’t feel quite so alone in my obsessive list-making ways, does anyone else out there keep a list of must-read books? Do you just keep it on your computer at home, have a list printed out or do you have a file on your PDA, iPhone or other tech-gadget so that your list is with you wherever you go?

If you do have a list, do you have a word doc, a spreadsheet or a database file or is it on your blog? If it’s on your blog like Rebecca (you can find the link in her profile), please leave a link in the comments so that I can visit and indulge in some book list envy.

    Hmmm – I think you know that my Must Read list is whatever book you’re hitting me over the head with.

    I really do need to make a proper Must Read list that I can take with me to 2nd hand book shops. THere’s nothing worse than stumbling across a great little bookstore and not being able to remember which books you’ve always been looking for.

    How cool! I am glad that I could inspire you! That rocks! I am SO eager to see your list. You will inspire some add-ons to my list I am sure!

    I have lots of lists… but the one you’re making me think of is my Raved Reads list. I’ve constantly heard people rave and rave about the same books, over and over, and I always think, “I should read that, some day“, but then I never get around to doing so. So I created a list (and a challenge) to get those books read (click “Raved Reads” above to see my list).

    I also have my ever-expanding TBR lists. 😉

    ANd, of course there are my “Friday Finds” (to be found in my first post at my blog, today). LOL
