This week I have been celebrating the love of summer reading!

On Wednesday, I posted my Summer Reading List. On Thursday, I posted reviews of the books I read in June.

On Friday, I joined Cristina and Tiffany over at Planned Not Scripted for the Late Summer Reading Club where we are reading The Summer Before the War.

Today I am sharing with you by new reading journal!

Anyone who reads my blog knows that I am in love with my bullet journal. I like having all my To Do’s and various lists all in one place. However, Anne at Modern Mrs. Darcy (who recently started using a bullet journal) talked about having a journal just for reading. In previous years, that would have been off my radar since I wasn’t reading much. However, this year one of my goals was to read more. As a result, my love of reading has been reignited and I am reading whenever I get the chance. Sooo, a book journal is making a lot more sense to me now.

I’ll admit that I’m a fangirl of MMD and when she came out with her own lined reading journal I picked one up. It is lovely! (Although, I have to be honest and say that it did have a chemical smell when it came out of the package. I aired it out before using it.) Here is how I set it up.

I numbered the pages and made an index of the content. I left space for future lists.

Next I added my challenges such as my Goodreads Reading Challenge and Modern Mrs. Darcy’s Reading Challenge.

Next I have my book log where I keep track of the books I read. Here is January to March.

April to June.

I left a few pages for the upcoming months and then started a Lists section. I lined the edges with washi tape for easier reference. I left ample room for various lists – books I want to read. Authors I want to check out. Books friends recommended to me, etc.

On page 31, I started a Quotes and Notes section, which are pretty self-explanatory.

Having all this in one place makes it easier when I am at the library or browsing the Overdrive app or looking for something on Amazon. There are plenty of ideas in one place. Because I had so much fun setting this up and using it, I want to share the fun with you. I bought an extra copy of the MMD journal and would love to give it to one of my online friends. šŸ™‚

    This is the type of journaling that goes on in my head! I’d love to get the pen to paper!

  • Alice says:

    This is amazing!!! I have a limited edition Moleskine (it’s the one with the fabric cover and The Hobbit theme) that I started using as a book journal, I just wrote the list of books read in 2015 and created a sort of 2016 log, but I wasn’t sure how to use the rest of the journal, since it has more pages than a normal Moleskine. I use a bullet journal for planning my life and I didn’t think about using it for my books! So THANK YOU for the inspiration <3
