There are several ways you can track your reading:

1. For those who love journaling: Bullet Journal

Make an entire bullet journal or just have a plain old diary dedicated to writing down the books or pages you’ve read in your day, this one’s for you! Ideas for journals include the number of pages read in the month-at-a-glance pages, writing down the books you’ve read in the day-to-day views, and even making a coloring-in page for your TBR you’ve been planning to read. One bullet technique would be to create a list of books you want to read, and then check them off as you complete them.

2. Social Media /A Bookstagram Favourite: Monthly View Page Trackers

Share your reading progress and thoughts on books on social media platforms like Instagram. You can use hashtags to connect with other readers. A lot of these pop up on bookstagram, and often with super pretty backgrounds! It focuses on the amount of pages read each day, rather than how many books. This method is perfect for those who want to share their reading daily/weekly/over the month over social media, or for those who just want to see how many pages they read instead of the amount of books they read.

3. Spreadsheet: Excel sheet

If you love data as much as you love books, creating a personal spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets just makes sense. With a spreadsheet, you’ll have all kinds of flexibility in terms of documenting your reads. While you’ll want to invest a fair amount of time and work on the front end to set the spreadsheet up before you get started, you can always iterate as you go to make sure you’re optimizing the experience. A spreadsheet is completely private and you can customize exactly what information to record about each book you read.

4. An Old Favourite: Goodreads

The classic! If you are not using Goodreads yet, you should. It is super easy to track the books you read in the year. Goodreads has a yearly challenge, which is pretty handy if you want to record how many books you have read in a year! There’s no minimum number of books, nor a maximum, so you can tailor it towards what you want to achieve. It even tells you how many books ahead or behind on your goal, you are if you need to see where you are at throughout the year.

5. Track a reading in Physical notebook: Reading Journal

For those who appreciate nice pens and paper, a physical (analog) book journal is an excellent reading-tracking method. There are lots of journals made specifically for people to keep track of the books they’ve read, but you can also get a plain notebook and design your own. This could be as simple as writing down the title of the book, the author, and the date completed. Another idea is to create a quote book where you record at least one quote from every book you read. In terms of the cover, having it reflect your personality could be its project. Get creative with stickers, markers, fabric, or whatever comes to mind.
