If you have a smart phone, help is here. There are two apps I like. To Read, available through the app store for IOS or Google Play for Android, keeps tracks of books. Create a list of books you want to read and check them off as you read them. When you add books, it includes an image of the cover and a summary. You can sort your list in a variety of ways.
Sofa, available only for IOS through the app store, has lists for books, TV shows, movies, music albums and video games. It also has an option for a Quick List for items you’re not ready to categorize. You can also create custom lists, such as Summer Reads. All items include a summary and you can click on a button from the podcast list to listen to it. When you’ve read, watched, etc., you can check it as done.
