Happy New Year Everyone! The following idea for an ongoing Flickr photo project struck me towards the end of last year, and I've even managed to get around to acting on it:
I'm not normally one to keep track of what I'm reading - the record keeping kind of bores me. But this year, I thought I'd do something to keep track.
So, I'm going to snap a pic of the of every book I read as I start it (or shortly thereafter). I'm planning to include eBooks and audiobooks, too, as well as any really interesting articles, blog posts, etc. that I come across and have time to snap a picture of.
I might come back and make note of when (or if) I finish the book. Or I might not. The whole point of this is to keep the boring record-keeping to a minimum.
If anybody else wants to play along, leave a comment - if there are enough others, I'll start a group for this.
I'm sure there are plenty of other hassle-free ways to keep track of such things, but from my perspective, nothing's easier than just snapping a picture. I don't know if I'll actually manage to keep this up for the whole year, but I think it'll be fun to try. And, as I said, if anybody else wants to play along, drop me a comment, either here or at Flickr - if enough people show interest (and I'll likely consider one other person "enough people"), I'll start a group.
If nothing else, it might be amusing to have photographic evidence of just how weird my taste in reading material is.
