You like to read and read often? Then you certainly (just like me) have a large stock of books and like to lose the overview. Exactly for this case I have created an Excel template, which should remedy the situation:
Enter all your books in one file in a book list!
You can note the following:
- Book title,
- purchase date,
- reading status,
- Media type (eBook, book, audio book),
- Description or own opinion to the book.
To make capturing even easier, the Genre, Media Type and Status areas are provided with a drop-down menu. This allows you to easily select the appropriate entry.
Personally, the list is particularly important to me for the book titles that I read electronically or with my Kindle. Since I don’t hold them in my hand analogously, it’s hard for me to make a reference to them. Again and again I find myself hesitant when searching for new reading material, whether I already know the book or not. With normal books this does not or only rarely happen to me.
