Plugin Request - A Way to Tell which Books Are Read vs Unread

A plugin that can create a list, or a subcategory, or something in the books metadata etc, that you can click or set it aside with that allows you to say ive read this book, so that u can keep track of what books you have finished and what books you have not, as ive read so many books that i sometimes cant keep track, this would be SOO helpful....

There are several ways you could do that without anything new.

You could add a 'Read' tag to books you've finished, you could add a custom column to your library that you set for that, or use the Reading List plugin to keep a 'Read' list.

I'm sure there are other ways, too.

@Milece - I've deleted your other duplicate post and moved JimmXinu's response here. As JimmXinu says a custom column is how most peole keep track, or use a Tag. And you can use the Goodreads Sync plugin if you want to sync keeping track of your reading with shelves no the Goodreads website. Or indeed use the Reading List plugin in various ways. Lots of things already exist for this...
