Index, January-April 2006

As I was showing this blog to someone, it became apparent that I needed some sort of index that showed all the books in one list, preferably with links to the posts about the books. Otherwise, someone new to the site doesn’t get the whole picture of what I’ve read so far this year, and someone who might want to go back and reread a post would have to know the month in which I read the book.

I’ve read the Blogger help to see if there’s an automated way to create this index but I can’t seem to find it. If anyone knows how to do it, please tell me.

What I really need is a real Web site instead of a blog, but that’s a longer term solution. Today, at Yahoo, for $2.95, I registered the domain name Don't click on it because nothing is there; Blogger makes it link despite my efforts to make it NOT a link.

Meanwhile, here’s a list of what I’ve read so far this year:

If you're feeling particularly intrepid, consider using wordpress instead of blogger. It's more of a pain to set up (I actually paid someone to do it for me because it resides on your hosted domain), but it lets you use categories and other cool stuff. You can also insert additional pages that are created like a blog entry, but are actually their own static pages. Which might be a great solution for linking to all books ...
