I’ve added a new feature to my blog. If you look on the right side, you’ll notice a “Now Reading” section. You can also just click this link to go to the main summary page.
I’m using Rob Miller’s “Now Reading” WordPress plugin. I even sent him $20 via Paypal- the plugin works and so far at least does everything I wanted- Thank you, Rob! The data itself is apparently stored in mySQL, and you can add new fields (key-value pairs) to add more data beyond the basics.
I’ve loaded in 20 or so books that I’ve read in the last year. This isn’t anything close to the full list of books I’ve read in the last 12 months- instead, I just looked over at the nearest bookshelf (where I keep the most recent ones) and read off the titles I could see. Since the top shelf it two layers deep, that means even that method is missing quite a few titles. I think I read probably forty books a year, give or take, with an average of 500 pages. I’m going to try to keep track of what I’m reading reasonably accurately going forward. We’ll see how that works out 😉
