Last year I shared about how keeping track of the books I read really enhanced my reading life. I shared:
Until last year, I wasn’t so great at tracking the books that I read. So one of my goals last year, along with trying to complete a reading challenge, was to be more intentional about keeping a list of the books I read. And you know what I found? Keeping a list of the books I read throughout the year really enhanced my reading life. How? Because it helped me see not only how many books I read (which actually surprised me!), but also it reflected the variety of books I read as well. And truly, there’s something to being able to look back at all the books you’ve read. It feels like a sense of accomplishment somehow.
Also, if you want to read more, it’s a good chance that keeping a list of what you are reading will actually encourage you to read more. So this year, if you want to enhance your reading life, start with keeping a list of the books you read.
In that post, I offered a set of book reading logs. I’ve updated those book reading logs and instead of being date specific, they now have a blank space for the year. As I explained in my post last year, there are two different logs.
If the thought of keeping a reading journal feels a bit overwhelming and you’d prefer to just make a few brief comments about the books you are reading, then Book Reading Log A is the one for you! Included is a small space for each book entry where you can make a few brief comments or notes about the book.
If you already keep a reading journal and simply want a log to track your books, then Book Reading Log B is perfect. It is simply a reading log to keep track of all the books you read with no section for comments.
Choose which Book Reading Log you prefer, download it, and print off as many pages as you need. The first page of both logs has the title on it and the second page doesn’t. I created both pages because I like to have a title on the first page but not on all the subsequent pages I print out. 🙂
