2011 Reading Schedule

It's been a turbulent start to 2011 for me, and I thought I'd start getting organized in the new digs we moved to by alphabetizing my YA collection.

  171878 1884114229722 1447367039 2168669 3760057 o

erm... that's just the YA and middle grade books minus all the ones that have been borrowed... and all the ones double-parked behind these... ahem.

Anyway, I also thought that I'd be clever this time and try to read books about the time they're due to come out, so that I'm not reviewing them ages too early or too late. I have a little bit of backtracking to do (about a donzen books so far), but this should make for a pretty organized reading year.

Release dates are approximate (Delicious Library pulls them from Amazon.com) and subject to change. If you end up using this calendar for yourself, please make sure to link it back here if you're posting it. I'll be making changes as I go, and adding links (when I have an hour or 6 to spend on it).

If you have suggestions for more things I should read this year, feel free to comment!

Without further ado:

  1. (So jealous of your bookshelves!)
    This is a great idea! I was kind of doing something similar on LibraryThing (tagging ARCs with the month they're released), but this is way more organized. I might have to give it a go! :)

  3. :) I got Delicious Library 2 last year for Christmas. >> http://www.delicious-monster.com/ It's been excellent for tracking books! At our last book club meeting I got to use the Check-Out function, LOL. I can even set due-dates, if I want to!
