I’ve been keeping track of the books I’ve read for more than ten years–first by hand and then by spreadsheet and now via Goodreads. My lists turned into notes and gradually, those notes transitioned into reviews. I try to write 300- to 500-word reviews that are objective, that go beyond summarization, and that emphasize the positive while minimizing the what-I-would-have-liked-to-have-read-instead. I read a wide variety of work, much of it based on book clubs I’m a member of, family history I’m researching, and recommendations from friends.
