    I did something last year that worked well. I bought one of the larger index card boxes. Then, I bought the index dividers that have numbers on them. I had a sheet of paper that was the size of the index card that said: name, date, genre, summary of book. I made copies of the paper on different colored paper, depending on the genre. For example, if they read a historical fiction book, they wrote their summary on a green sheet of paper. Then, they would put their paper behind their number in the index card box. I could easily tell just by looking at colors what genres they had read. Also, it helps them practice writing a summary!
    Hope this helps!
