Musing Mondays (28 September)

Today’s Musing Mondays question is… “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)?”

Why, yes! Yes, I do. My GoodReads account serves as a repository for my TBR list, which I guess is my wishlist of books to read, and also for my “to own” list, which includes the books I love and must own. For my dear parents, I put together a Google Document wherein I ask for many things, including books, for my upcoming birthday and also that December gift-giving holiday.

    I'm currently using Amazon wish list feature as my wish list. And I also have an excel spreadsheet I use which I'm terrible at keeping up. Now that LibraryThing has a wish list feature, I'm thinking of consolidating my two lists and using that instead. It would probably make things easier. My husband's really the only one who ever looks at my Amazon wish list (which is available for all to see). My family tends not to buy me books or anything book related outside of him (and my brother-in-law).

    Library Thing is my first choice for all my bookish needs, so I have started using Library Thing for my wishlist…one advantage is that anyone I know who might want to buy me a gift, say a book, can access it.

    I do have an Amazon wishlist, but I feel like with that sort of wishlist you're telling people where to buy things, and I don't like that. I keep that one to myself as a sort of “these are things I should think about buying in the future” list rather than for giving to other people.
