crossing a few off

I thought I'd get a bit more organized and note which books of my TBR lists I've actually read. So today I went back through those posts and marked all the read books with strikethrough, and linked each title to its respective review. I marked off more than I'd expected to, but fewer than I'd hoped! I think usually I end up finally reading these books because I come across them at the library or a book sale and remember they're on my list, so pick them up. But I have so much on hand to read I rarely go out seeking for a particular title because it's on the list. I ought to, though. I'd probably get through it so much faster that way!

Doesn't it feel great to put a line through things on your TBR? :p

Oh yes! And I never actually made a cross-off mark before, would just delete them from a list. Somehow this seems more satisfying.

Seeing the strike-through is a sense of accomplishment, isn't it? I have a journal I keep the lists of books i want, and when I cross through it, I am so satisfied. Although, I have almost finished the journal, which is quite awesomely scarily almost full now! We do love our books, don't we?

I should do a strikethrough system too! I don't know why I haven't thought of it before, because I love crossing things off lists.
