message 1: by Sandi (new)

Sandi (sandikal) If we are currently reading a book, but don't finish it until January, should we count it at 2008 or 2009?


message 2: by Karol (new)

Karol Sandi, I'd say that's a personal choice . . . whatever you do is fine! Right now, I've got 3 books in progress and with 2 days left in the year it's not looking like I'll finish all three. My list will be for the books I finish in 2009 - so chances are, there will be a couple that I've already started in there.

Please do what feels best to you, though!


message 3: by Penny (new)

Penny Great question, Sandi! I was wondering the same thing, too. Thanks for being flexible about including books we are currently reading, Kay. :) Happy New Year's to everyone!


message 4: by Merri (new)

Merri I actually started 2 new books today and was planning to count them for 2009- only 20 pages in! Glad to know that is OK!


message 5: by Liz (new)

Liz (busy91) I always put the date I finished. So of if it is 2009 so be it.


message 6: by Graceann (new)

Graceann (silentsgirl) No matter when I started it, if I finished it in 2009, it is a 2009 read. Some people are really strict about the year-end (and month-end) thing, but too many rules mean too little fun to me. :-)

Jackie (thenightowl) I guess I'm one of this strict people :-)
I finished The Gargoyle on Jan. 2nd but didn't count it because I wanted a fresh slate.


message 8: by Liz (new)

Liz (busy91) I wouldn't say you are strict. I just think that each person has a way they count things. Some people count from when they started, or some count from when they finished, or someone like you doesn't do either. It is all prefrence I think.

I personally count the book based on when I finish reading it.

I'm with Liz, the date I finish a book is the date I use for all of my logs.
