Papermark is a free website to add books to reading list and track reading progress of each individual book. You will be able to create your own online library where you can keep track of what you want to read. For each individual book, you can manually insert the reading progress. Apart from this, it also lets you add notes for a particular book.
It separately stores books which you want to read and books which you’ve read. So it becomes easy for you to keep track of books in which you are interested and need to complete. Those who have dozens of books in their bookshelf and are not able to manage the reading process can benefit from this website.
