The Reader's Dilemma
How do you pick your next read? Cromaine staff share their own strategies for tracking reading, managing to-be-read lists, and selecting what to read next. We discuss Goodreads, Google Docs, and Google Keep as tracking tools. Suggestions for picking a book include following your mood, working your way through physical piles, using recommendations from friends, book lists, journals, asking questions, creating a tub of titles, reading chronologically and using Novelist. Every reader is different and it might take some experimentation to find what works for you!
