OK, a month ago I mentioned how I signed up on Good Reads to try to make myself accountable for my doctoral research. If I have a list of books that anyone can access to assess my progress (ha!) it will encourage me to get more done. Of course I'm not so vain as to think anyone really cares, but shame is a powerful thing. Why not use it for my own purposes?
As you may have noticed, a few days ago I discovered a widget at Good Reads that lets me display my reading list on the sidebar here. So now the uncaring multitudes won't have to click over to another website to see how I'm progressing in my research, it's right here in black and white (well, in ones and zeros actually).
