I decided to create a list chronicling the order obtained, date received, the book title and author. As soon as I get a new book, I always record it on my list to keep it up to date.
The list makes a handy reference not only for what books I own and in what order they were purchased but also can be used to help keep track when you lend someone a book.
Having a list like this can be nostalgic as looking over it and reminiscing about when you were finally able to get a special book or realizing how your knowledge base has evolved been partially shaped by your book collection can be comforting pastime.
Blessed be and Happy Samhain,
