Keeping Track

I read a lot, but I don’t have a system for processing what I read. I document finished books through GoodReads and in my planner. I rate the books. But I don’t write anything about them. I read articles for work, and I jot down my notes, but again. No formal processing. I have thought about writing reviews, but I’m not sure what my angle would be. What’s the point?

With articles or professional texts, what is a way to process my thinking? I’m wondering if I keep a journal (either paper or digital) to write down my thoughts. Do you keep the articles if they are printed out? Maybe I’m overthinking all of this.

Does anyone else have this issue? How do you keep track or process?

  1. I think this is a great question to ask, and I hope you get a lot of interesting replies.
    I am a prolific reader who does not keep track at all of my reading. I have an old reading journal that I put down after a few months, years ago. And yet, I would love at least a record of books read. You do have that, at least. I think by writing this piece you are acknowledging to yourself you do want more and I am guessing someone will share an idea that speaks to you.
