How do you maintain TBR list?

Just curious to know how people maintain the TBR list. I used to maintain mine in the Google docs spread sheet. Anytime I saw a new book that was of interest to me, I would add it into it with status to buy or if already bought TBR. Recently I have not been able to maintain this list and wanted to know your views on the same. Do you regularly maintain a list? Where do you maintain it?

That's pretty much what I do. Just put what I want to read on my Kindle.

When I finish reading a book, I move them into a collection. So all the unreads are visible from the home screen since they aren't in a collection.

And I can count how many I've read by just seeing the numbers of each collection. (273 books since getting my Kindle about a year ago, whenever K3s came out. Not bad)

Nice! I was feeling guilty about not maintaining the list.

My TBR list is in Calibre, containing all books which have the custom column "Read" filled with "Unread". This will generate a collection "Unread" on my Sony.

I use the "Notes" app on my iPhone for that. If I don't write them down, I forget about them.

I have an access database where I keep all the books I have, the info about them and the status (read/unread, reading date and score for them). For books I want, I've got an spreadsheet where I write down the book and the publishing date, and I mark when I get them.

I generally share the list with my wife so that she can gift those books to me every now and then that’s the reason I started with Google docs but its getting too cumbersome now.

I have a collection in Kindle called "TBR". Here the books awaiting to be read and the currently reading book sits.
The finished read books moves from "TBR" to the "Read" collection.

Finally I have the "Important" and "Reference" collections. They should be self explaining.

My To-Be-Bought-for-Later-Reading are on my "Stickies" program on my PC desktop and/or in the Amazon wishlist.

My TBR exists only in my head most of the time (although I also maintain a short-time list on Google Books). And I have one huge folder in my computer where all the ebooks that I own are stored (whether already read or on the TBR).

As for the books I'm interested in, I add them to Amazon's Wish List (even if end up buying them elsewhere, it works well enough as a central location).

I don't have a list. When I'm done with one book, I do a mental search by author. Then I choose a book and fetch it.
