    Sometimes I come across a novel and read the synopsis and it seems interesting so I read it only to realise I’ve read it before

    I made bookmarks before I started using the reading list last year. I just found https://www.novelupdates.com/series...orld-no-thanks-i-dont-need-a-special-ability/ and am now reading from chapter 26 where I stopped 4 years ago :blobpeek:

    That's why I DL novels, or just leave a tab open, so I can read it when I'm in the mood. If I forgot about it, it only means I meant to dropped it at that time. Sometimes, I find a similar novel with more chapters, so it's technically not dropping right? As long as I get my daily dose of wish fulfillment, it doesn't matter what novel it is.

    I can't think of the number of times I've left tabs open only to close them after a few months because there are too many tabs open.....

    I only read around 5 novels at a time, and one extra completely TL'd novel to stack chapters. Most of the time I DL it, because I prefer to tap and the pages would flip.

    I had the tabs opened for all the novels I was reading then I had to update my phone and it messed up and had to be reset so I’m not sure what chapter I’m on for most of them or I’ve totally forgotten their names now cause honestly most of their names are similar

    Ya, I currently have 2 lists, thinking I should have more.
    What I am thinking I should use is :
    1. Actively reading
    2. Read and put on hold
    3. read but lost interest
    4. looked interesting but waiting for it to reach a critical mass of chapters so I can see if it is good

    That happens to me too. I just see that as a sign to find new ones. If I really like a novel, I'd remember it anyway.

    Only 2? That's great. My lists look like this-
    • Books I'm gonna read
    • Waiting for being completed
    • Dunno about these
    • These I'll read for sure
    • Books I'm reading 1
    • Books I'm reading 2
    • Books I'm reading 3
    • Completed books BL
    Etc etc etc...

    There are a bunch of them in my "Waiting" reading list, which is also a place for novels I'm interested in but have yet to read. Now I can't remember which ones are the ones I'm "waiting for completion" and the ones I'm "waiting to read in the future."

    I honestly think it's not that bad if you forget novel titles since if it does get updated ur bound to find it again and if you forgot it, it just means it wasn't that interesting for you to remember at the first place. Just keep reading so shit you have to read piles up looool. :blob_ghost:

    Oh I've lost track a lot. I even forget the novels I've kept bookmarked sometimes. Also I forgot the books I downloaded. Lol.
