I like to read books that are part of series. And usually it takes a while until a new book gets released, so by that time I have totally forgotten about the upcoming Vinve Flynn, Brad Meltzer or F. Paul Wilson book.

What makes things even harder for me is that frequently, the official release is a US release and me in outback Austria (on the old continent) has to wait even longer.

So how do you plan your reading, your purchases etc.? Electronically? Good ol' paper note with release dates?
I used goodreads. It's effective at tracking both "read" books and a wish list with standard functionality. It will also email/notify you when wishlist books are released. I don't know if you can specify a Australian release date, though.

On the kindle I use Collections and on the nook I use Shelves (same concept) to track what books I have read that are on the device. I also track what I've read on Calibre since I move books off and on my devices. The last 3 cannot handle wishlists.
