So, one of my goals for 2017 is to read at least 26 books – that’s one book every two weeks so nothing too tricky! At the start of the year, I made a list of 26 books to read. Of course, I’m not limiting myself to just these books – I’ve already read several not on the list – but my plan is to try get all of these books read as some of them I’ve had for quite a while!
I have a bookshelf section in my A5 planner for tracking books I have read and rating them and I really like that section, but I kinda wanted to keep my 2017 reading separate so I could easily see it.
I opted to copy the bookshelf look but just label it ‘2017 reading list’!
At first I was just going to keep it plain looking because as I read books I’ll colour them in and that will eventually give the whole page colour but a few weeks in I decided it was looking a little dull and I had to do something about it!
I’ve listed all the books I want to read this year. They’re also listed in the main section of my bookshelf but it’s handy being able to see a year at a time as well.
As I’m not limiting myself to just those books though, the other side of the page features a blank shelf ready to be filled with all those unplanned reads!
I love sites like Goodreads.com which let you track your reading, rate books and even mention if you have the book and what condition it’s in. Goodreads is a fantastic resource but sometimes, you just also want a physical list because there is something really satisfying about filling in those shelves and colouring the books in!
Do you track your reading? If so, how do you go about doing it?
