I saw this tag on Amy’s blog, Curiouser and Curiouser, and I thought I’d do it too!

Do you keep a list of the books you’ve read?

I do in my reading journal. Title and author (if it’s manga, graphic novels, or comics I also put the volume number). I keep track of how many I’m reading in the month (every month I start over at 1) and I have trackers for the season that I create and then color in.

If you record statistics, what statistics do you record?

Since I’m doing a historical fiction and middle grade reading challenge I make note of that with a symbol and then color in the tracker I created at the beginning of the year. But not much beyond how many books I read in a given period of time.

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?

My equivalent is cups of tea (here’s the page for a little bit of a break down of my system). Highlights include: my expectations going in play a role, comparing it to books I’ve read recently and/or books in the same age category and genre I’ve read previously; and the answer to the question, do I want to reread this book?

Do you review books?

I tend to. (Here’s a post about why I don’t review every book.)

Where do you put your finished books?

Most of them I return to the library. Physical ones I own tend to go into the storage containers I have in the basement (unless I know I’ll reread it) and the Kindle ones I delete off my device (unless I know I’ll reread it).

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

I try to do photoshoots for the ones I really liked reading and want to share those feelings with others on social media but I’m not consistent, partly because I’m so bad at photography but also because I’ll likely review it here.
