Wendi at Wendi's Book Corner asks today: How do you get your books for reviewing? Do you track them somehow (excel, database, etc), or just put them in a tbr (To Be Read) pile?
I review each and every book I read. And even the ones I start and can't finish. So the easy answer is I get books from all over - the library, recommendations from other bloggers, friends, Amazon, etc. I am not a big book buyer and am a big library fan. Thus most of my books 'come' from there (and hopefully are returned in a timely manner - but not always).
As a blogger I've also received quite a few books from publishers and authors. That's definitely fun. Especially when it turns out to be a very good author and I go back to read their older novels.
All the books I physically have to read next, both from the library and sent to me, are in a basket. The basket is currently homeless at the moment but will find a home in one of the rooms on the main floor soon. So when I'm ready to start a new book, the basket is where I head. I usually end up putting the one's I've read in there too until time to get rid of them. Easy to keep track of it all.
I also have starting keeping track of my tbr books that are recommended by other bloggers and such via my LibraryThing account. I add them to my library and tag them as tbr so I can search through them when needed.
Where do you keep track of the books you have to read?
