Booking Through Thursday: Do-Over


Question this week from BTT:

Have you ever bought a book, started reading it and then realised you have already read it? If so, how far did you get? (Can you tell this happened to me for the first time ever this week!?!)

I have done this quite a few times in the past, sometimes by the end I still haven't figured out if I have actually read it or a book like it! It has happened mostly when I used to read Marian Keyes books, especially when the characters were related.
I will continue to read the book if I have forgotten most of it, or if it was a really good book.
However this rarely happens to me now, with the help of Librarything and Goodreads I can keep a list of books I have already read, and since I mostly read on my Kindle Amazon will tell me if I have already downloaded a book (although this doesn't help with old paperbacks I have read.)

  6. that's what I love about goodreads. You can just keep track of everything you read and no chance of forgetting either :)
