Musing Mondays - on Thursday This Week!

Musing Mondays (BIG) Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about your wishlist…


Do you keep a book wishlist, either on paper, Amazon/etc, or via a book database site (Shelfari, GoodReads, LibraryThing)? If yes, do you share this list with others (especially coming up to Christmas)?

Yes, I keep a wish list of mainly recent books on IndieBound.org containing books I really want to read right now, and a really long one on Bookmooch, which has everything under the sun that I'd like to read even a little bit. I'll share the IndieBound list with my family for Christmas shopping but I don't share the Bookmooch list because those books aren't as urgent. I also use my IndieBound list as a shopping list and update it regularly as I buy books throughout the year. I don't use my LibraryThing account for wishlists since I only use it for books I own or have read.

I use Goodreads.

I keep a wishlist but on my blog, though I am preparing a list of 100 books to be read. I wish to read most of the Man Booker Prize winners (the books that won) and the Nobel Laureates. Not doing this makes me feel as if I am reading low quality books or I am being left behind.

I'll have to check out IndieBound. I'm not entirely comfortable with Amazon and their practices, it was just the most convenient at the time.

I keep a wish list only for myself—but sharing that list sounds like a great idea. I'll have to check out the various options out there...
