Book journal & Reading Spreadsheet | Update 2019

Hi, folks!

A few months back, I gave you a peek at my book journal. This is just a quick video to update you on the spreads I will be using in 2019:


Projects mentioned in the video:

I’ve also made a simplified version of my reading spreadsheet, and I briefly explained how it works on this video:

Do you keep a book journal or a reading spreadsheet? If you have any suggestions, please let me know in the comments 🙂

Yours truly,

  1. I use Goodreads to do my book recording. Mostly, I’m concerned with page counts (I’ve been trying to surpass 31,000 pages for a few years). However, in the new year & with my book-buying ban, I’m going to be starting a few lists about what books I’m borrowing and where they are borrowed from. I’m only just started in becoming interested in the data surrounding my book habits.


    1. To track the borrowed books – that’s a good idea. I usually do that on my journal. When I started to collect the data on my reading habits, I was really surprised with what I found. Since then, it has helped me to change things I wanted to improve – so I do recommend. 🙂


  2. I’m so impressed with your organisation – I wish I could be that focused with my reading, but I tend ot be all over the place. I *do* now track what books I read and when on a very simple spreadsheet, but nothing as clever or elaborate as yours!


  3. I have kept a record of what I’ve read on my blog, but a digital method is never as preferred as an analogue one. In my Midori Traveler’s Notebook, I write the book I am reading every week, as well as those I receive to review. But now I am thinking I would like to record quotes or a brief reaction to each book I read. (With my memory, I sometimes wish I had written the ending!) I like your spreadsheet system, which is far more organized than I have ever attempted.


    1. Thank you, Meredith 🙂 I’ve been thinking about using my book journal to write about the books I read, too. On a side note: I got The Pillow Book, so I will ne taking part in the readalong!
