Reading Journal – February 2021

Since the last time I posted about my reading journal on my blog, I have really scaled back the number of spreads I create and what they look like. I track my days read and amount read in my main planner and in a spreadsheet and I don’t really create strict TBRs anymore so what I need in my reading journal is different from what it used to be but I still like having this journal just for tracking my reading. I also still want to share my spreads here as well as on my Instagram so hopefully you enjoy!

I kept my spreads this time to a title page, a place to track the books I complete and their ratings, a place to plan my monthly content, and a place to include pictures of my favorite books from that month. Being able to see my star ratings easily on this page really helps me with my monthly wrap-ups on Instagram. I also really like being able to go through at the end of the year and see what my favorite(s) is for each month as it really helps with year-end wrap-ups as well as seeing if I own my favorite books of the year yet.

The most helpful spread though is my content planning. I can fill in the dates and what platforms I want to post on throughout the month and knowing what I want to post and when is invaluable when setting up my main planner each week. This is definitely a must-have spread for me.

I know this post is always short but I still hope you enjoy it! How do you track your reading?
