Christmas in 2010 brought the lovely Sparky (shown above) into my life. Not only does this wonderful little e-reader make it easier to read while traveling, even if the travels are just to the neighborhood coffee shop, what is most amazing to me is how quickly I can add books to my shelves.
My virtual shelves are not as visible, therefore resulting in some languishing of wonderful books that are “out of sight, out of mind.”
Since the rules for my Mt. TBR Challenge also allow us to add books from our e-readers when creating our lists, I thought I should try to organize them all a little better.
What to do? Well, I have “collections” for my books read on Sparky, so why not collections listing purchase dates? Wouldn’t that make it easier to keep track? I think it would. So my project today was to first itemize e-books purchased by dates, and then compile them in the appropriate collection.
Not as difficult as I thought it would be. Because I list all books purchased by date on Curl up and Read, I went there first for my notations. Then I created the collections for 2012 and 2013…luckily, those specifically purchased during those years were not as numerous as I had expected.
Done and done!
Now I can happily check out those collections first when deciding what to read next!
Do you have a system for organizing your TBR shelves for e-books? What works for you?
