I've lost count of the number of times a library patron has asked if we keep a record of the things they've checked out. By the way, the answer to that question is "No." There are some great resources out there that make keeping track of what you read easier than ever though. One of those resources is GoodReads. The functions of the site will be familiar to users of social networking sites like Facebook. If you're new to social networking, relax! Don't be afraid to explore. Ask for help if you need it.
January has always been my month to get organized and plan a focus for the year to come. Getting organized can take on a variety of meanings for me. Last year, I cleaned and organized our basement storage area. Two years ago, I organized my computer files. This year, I am organizing my plans for a healthier lifestyle.
