Today we’re revisiting a topic near and dear to our hearts here at WSIRN HQ, and one that’s perfectly suited to this time of year, when we’re reviewing the year gone by and making resolutions for the year to come.
To get an accurate picture of your reading life, you’ve gotta track your reading—and in this episode, I talked to 14 different readers about how they do just that. I hope their methods and perspectives provide the inspiration and practical ideas you need to start your 2020 reading year strong!
We cover a LOT of ground in this episode, starting with the more common methods like Goodreads, then moving on to the more inventive and unusual. Some readers even shared photos of their methods, and we’re delighted to include them here.
You’ll also find a transcript of the episode linked below, if reading along or referring back to a written version is helpful for you. We’ve been providing transcripts of the show for about a year now, to make the show more accessible to deaf and hard of hearing readers, readers who speak English as a second language, and anyone who wants to refer back to old episodes without listening all over again. If transcripts are helpful for you or a friend, know that you can always find them linked in each episode’s blog post.
