Aaaarghhh... (aka GoodRant)

Have just discovered that when I mark a book as "read" on GoodReads, it does not automatically also set the date read field.

This is vexing. See also plaguey, bothersome, disagreeable, pestiferous, galling, nettlesome.

I have just spent three hours updating my list of books read to reflect WHEN I read them -- and that's only back to 2007! Grrrr.

I READ A LOT. I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR THIS CRAP!!

OK, well, obviously I do since I just spent several many hours working on it. But that's time wasted which I could have better spent reading more and new and different books! I have 354 books on my to-read list; even in the bast-case scenario of three hours per book, that's 1062 hours. If I put in two hours a day (which is a good day, what with the Real Job and cooking and sleeping and oh yeah, the Spouse), that's almost more than* TWO YEARS just to get through what's on my list today.

And we all know it won't stop with what's on my list today.

When you mark a book as read, it should have a popup that says, "Set 'date read' to today's date?" or similar. Come on, GoodReads. Be a good little enabler and help me out.

* math and I are not friends...
