As a child I hated reading logs. It was a nuisance to interrupt the "flow" of reading by writing down answers to prescribed questions. Did my teachers even know if I finished reading these books? Ever couple of weeks we submitted another index card with basic information including title, author, main characters, setting, conflict, resolution, climax, theme, plot, and opinion of the book. Back then we didn't have the internet to copy from, but we did have our friends who could give us the Cliff Notes versions of books. A few favorite books and authors stand out in my mind, but the index cards couldn't capture my true feelings about what I had read (or didn't read).
