I know I've written some weird posts, but...this one is kind of out there (although if, like me, you exhibit OCD tendencies it may appeal :)
I know that many of us in the blogosphere record our TBR or BR (Been Read) lists online, through handy sites such as GoodReads, LibraryThing and Shelfari. But, I have a problem. I've just finished reading the Burning Up anthology...well, not exactly. I've just finished reading the Whisper of Sin (Nalini Singh) and Here There Be Monsters (Meljean Brook) novellas; neither Angela Knight's nor Virginia Kantra's novellas appealed (and I'm trying to listen more to what I want to read rather than reading by rote). And there is the crux of my dilemma. How do I record the reading of half of a book (so to speak)? With previous anthologies I have listed the anthology as a whole as a DNF in my monthly update, but referenced those novellas I did read. But...the OCD part of me has been twitching (in increasing intensity) at the thought of not counting the novellas. If I've read four this year does that equate to a whole book and, if so, how do I record it? *stumped* And where does all this leave my various reading challenges?
In all honestly anthologies rarely appeal (as far as purchasing goes). I'm too likely to run into a novella I'm not interested in (and then I begin to question the expense). In fact I only own two anthologies - Dreams Made Flesh (Anne Bishop) and On the Prowl. The former because it consisted completely of Black Jewel novellas (of varying lengths) and the latter because I fell in love with Charles & Anna - how could I not?
So, I'm curious, how do you, if at all, record the reading of novellas/anthologies?
Edited to add: Because I'm an idiot I've somehow managed to upset my wrists (my RSI has flared again), so instead of visiting y'all *sad* and commenting wildly, I will be sitting on the couch with an ice pack on my wrists. Hopefully they will settle overnight and I'll be back online tomorrow night. (And before you ask, I wrote this post before my wrists packed a sad :)
