For some weeks now I am keeping a list of the books that I am reading.
The idea was to place any book there that I have been reading. Comics as “Suske and Wiske” included (so there will be a lot of their books be mentioned there, because I really like them and started to collect them again :) ).
But for some reason I didn’t like the layout I used. For instance, I added for each book a link to site with more information on that specific book. Not a good idea. Links come and go… and even in the short time I have this list a link was not working anymore.
So for some days I have playing around with it and what I have now I like:
- A scanned picture of the cover (350 pixels in heigth)
- Date I started to read it
- The title of the book (and the original title when there is one)
- Author(s), ISBN Number, year of printing, publishing company
- Short description of the book
At first description may be short and based on what is written on the cover of book. After finishing the book I may extend the discription and add more information there as what I thought of the book.
Only thing I have to keep an eye on that when there are lots of books with cover-pictures the loading of the page may become slow. Then I will make some kind of archive for the older books or something like that. Time enough to think about that.
I like my book list and because of that I also created a list of DvD’s that I am watching :).
