I didn‘t understand why people write down what books they‘ve read. I have them on my shelves, isn‘t that enough? After almost buying the same book for the THIRD time, I‘ve decided to start writing them down. Maybe this will help them stay in my head a little longer.

Scochrane26 I read more than I used to, & my memory isn‘t as good as in my 20‘s. So, it helps me to keep track of books I have read. (edited) 3w
marleed If I write down what I read with just a couple sentence about my thoughts it really helps me remember what I read. Also, I don‘t keep every book I read so I like having a physical touchy feely thing for the effort. 3w
deletedbecausethisappisawful I started keeping one for this year, and I've found I feel way more engaged in whatever I'm reading. I'm sad I waited so long to do it! 3w

So this is that reading log people have been recommending. I started mine with Turbulence on 12/24 because that when I felt I got my mojo back post surgery.

Here‘s a sample page, along with my other amazon delivery - 50 scrunchies! The shaded area at the bottom is for quotes.

Here‘s the order link. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1980338418?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title

Many covers to choose from, if you don‘t like mine.

Cinfhen I‘m trying to find a journal to track my multi ridiculous reading challenges/ I don‘t think it exists 😜 3w
Crazeedi Yes I have the same one! 3w
Crazeedi @Cinfhen if you find one let me know, because I'm trying to figure out how to track the same! Ughhhh! 3w

Megabooks @Cinfhen I was going to print the challenge grids and attach them with paper clips to the cover then write in the review what challenge it‘s for and put the number of the page next to the prompt/bingo square in the challenge! @Crazeedi 🤞🏻 it works! 3w
Cinfhen That sounds like a lot of work, Meg!! But you‘re a whiz and I‘m sure it‘s gonna be perfect!! I‘m trying to figure out a system that can cross reference all my prompts and book choices 😊😜 I‘ll let you know @Crazeedi first I need to remember all the challenges I‘m attempting 🤪 3w
Megabooks @Cinfhen interesting. My way sounds completely simple to me 😂😂😂😂 it really does!! It‘s interesting what each person feels is best! 3w
Reviewsbylola I love the idea but I know I wouldn‘t follow through with it. And I totally have that 50 pack of hair scrunchies. Wearing one right now. 😆 3w
Megabooks @Reviewsbylola I‘m in love with the scrunchies! So much better than regular hair ties for my thin, fine hair! We‘ll see if I follow through with the journal. I hope I do, but it was only $5.50, so I won‘t feel terrible if I don‘t. 3w
BarbaraBB Looks great, Meg. I love the idea but for me and my not-so-good English that review space is pretty scary. I am happy with the limited space on Litsy 😂. @Cinfhen I use a simple spreadsheet to combine and keep track of my challenges (because I am no Excel wizard). I can send it to you? (edited) 3w
Megabooks @BarbaraBB your English is excellent! I pretty much have been transcribing my Litsy reviews with maybe a sentence added or taken away. You‘ve seen my huge, messy handwriting - there‘s no room for more!! 😂😂 I‘d love a copy of your excel sheet, too, if you‘d be willing to share. 😁💜 3w
Cinfhen I‘m sooooo technically challenged @BarbaraBB but I‘m willing to try your method😘What do u need from me??? 3w
batsy That looks great! Thanks for sharing. I've been keeping a log of books read since I've been active on Litsy but it'll be cool to record it with extra info, short reviews or impressions & to track it alongside challenges & buddy reads #LitsyUniversityPrep 3w
Megabooks @batsy I wish I had kept a record like that! Great job! I‘m excited to start with this! I just filled in number 8! 3w
Lindy @batsy Great hashtag! 3w
Lindy @Megabooks Thanks for this post. I have been curious about the inside format of a commercial reading log. 3w
Crazeedi @Cinfhen @Megabooks @BarbaraBB @batsy I'm going to try to come up today with a way for me that makes sense . I'll let you all know 3w
TheAromaofBooks Yes, I am in love with this simple reading log and have been recommending it to everyone! 😆 For challenges, I have been setting up some pages in my bullet journal. Thanks to the same reading log you have pictured, every book I read now has a number (reading log volume + number book in that volume), so I can cross-reference from my challenge pages that a book is #1.57 (vol. 1, book 57) or whatever. Part of this is my love of overcomplication 😁 3w
JenReadsAlot Oh I'm so going to get one of these! 3w
BarbaraBB @Megabooks @Cinfhen I‘ll send it to you. Don‘t expect too much however, it‘s just some spreadsheets I use to keep track of the challenges. I am an Excel dummy 🤪 3w
Megabooks @Lindy You‘re welcome! 3w
Megabooks @TheAromaofBooks see, to me that seems simple and logical!! 3w
Megabooks @JenReadsAlot I love it so far! 3w
Megabooks @BarbaraBB it needs to be pretty dumbed down for me be able use it on excel! 🤪🤪 Thanks!! 💕💕 3w

I started a book #journal last June intending to track how many books I read, the reading challenge prompts they fit, ratings, & possibly add a few favourite quotes. It wasn‘t long before I fell behind. My last entry is from Sept. 2018 & it‘s incomplete! I keep thinking I should try again but my brain insists I fill in the missing months & that seems such a daunting task. I may need to start fresh with a new journal. 🤔 #SelfImprovementSept

Trigger Warning: Pregnancy Loss

A year ago today we took a trip to Savannah, GA because I had miscarried our baby. Those pictures showed up today. This morning I took a pregnancy test. It was negative. Feeling a lot of emotions but trying to be kind to myself. Sometimes life is hard. And sad. And full of loss.
Journaled about what I'm grateful for and Litsy popped up. Thank you for being a good community. ♡

1. Yeah, I like lighter, fluffy reads on vacation, and in the summer in general. When my clothes get lighter, so does my food and reads.

2. Oh, for sure. I also like to bring extra books to leave behind.

I'm kind of in love with this moleskin book journal I got from Barnes & Noble! 😍 It's alphabetized, has places for thoughts and quotes, and came with stickers also. It's pretty awesome! I know that this type of thing is sort of pointless what with goodreads and other sites to track reading and such, but there's just something super awesome and rewarding about physically writing it down and carrying it with you! 🤗💕📚

Next....look at all the treats!! I'm super pumped for this. Mini eggs and Pull-N-Peels are my obsession! And I haven't had sour bottles in years. I am in 🖤 with the infinity scarf and journal. Galaxy theme is always a winner in my books! I squealed a bit at the HP socks and the unicorn mug is awesome!! I can't wait to use it with the Kahlua French Vanilla coffee (it's like you KNOW me, 😆)

Taking another crack at a reading log this year. My plan for the design and layout for this falls somewhere between a bullet journal and an art/junk journal. It‘ll be a reflection of myself, I‘m a designer with a deep love for lists and charts and organization.

2019 book planning! I found a huge list of reading challenges at girlxoxo.com and modified some of them to suit me a bit better and then made up a couple of my own challenges to help me get through my 200 book physical tbr and get me motivated to find new books to love.

I got two new journals today. I had finally finished my "life" journal that spanned 3 years. And I decided that I wanted to get a new one but also a journal to record books and quotes. Is anyone else into journaling? Have more than one going at a time? Tell me all about it!!
Happy Friday Littens :)
#journal #journaling #bookjournal

Lel2403 I keep trying, but end up changing my mind...I need a topic to focus on I think 1y
jmofo I keep a journal that is written out (and I sketch in or paste things into) about plans, events, things I want to think about, recording how I feel and what‘s going on with my mental & physical health. These last anywhere from three months to a couple years (there have been dry spells). To deal with the anxiety that comes up in writing in it sometimes, I have a planner that I open and write in at the same time, to organize my goals and my time. (edited) 1y
Crazeedi I have journaled for probably 20 plus years, for a while it was daily, now I find I don't do it regularly but I have one by my bed at all times! 1y
See All 17 Comments
kathedron I have a reading journal, a planner, a writer's notebook and an "everything else" journal. I tried using OneNote and Evernote for a while but if I want to stick at it then only pen and paper works for me. I'd *love* to create a stunning journal with as many sketches and little paintings as written bits but that's not going to happen anytime soon! 1y
Kindredanne I am a journal freak!! I have been keeping one since I was 12 years old. I have my personal and my book record journal! Love. To. Journal. 1y
olivia.ferz I've been keeping a journal since I was 11 years old. I wrote everyday but these recent couple of years I've been irregular. I've also wanted to keep a book journal though I haven't figured out how to start one. 1y
SleepyDragon I just put everything in one journal, sort of a non-bullet journal because I have no use for a paper planner anymore. I use the calendar on my phone so that it syncs with my husband's and oldest's phone calendars. I have included quotes, doodling, sketches, etc. in my journal since I started journaling seriously in college. I don't always write regularly, but I'm trying to be better about it lately. 1y
CouronneDhiver I do! I keep a journal... mostly, about my faith. I record bible verses, prayer requests (and answers!), life lessons, inspirations, etc. 1y
SamanthaMarie @Lel2403 I understand that for sure. I think that's part of the reason it took me three years to finish mine haha! 1y
SamanthaMarie @jmofo That sounds like such an excellent processing tool. I had a severe panic disorder for 2.5 years and journaling was so helpful for tracking my mental wellness. I too, like to paste things into my journals. :) I might have to steal your idea of using my planner alongside my journal! 1y
SamanthaMarie @Crazeedi I would love to get into a daily practice! I used to do it daily in high school and college, but then my hubby came along and life is more distracting with a husband and now a toddler. 1y
SamanthaMarie @kathedron I'm the same way with needing actual pen and paper. I tried Evernote a few years back. Definitely not for me. And so much yes about creating a stunning journal haha! 1y
SamanthaMarie @Kindredanne Yay!!! I love other journal freaks!! I started around that age too. I had so much to say about boys and school 😂 but it really was a helpful thing for this introvert!! 1y
SamanthaMarie @olivia.ferz Lifelong journaling for the win! I haven't quite decided what I am doing to do for my book journal either. Maybe write down favorite quotes and reflections as I go... but then that journal will fill up quickly haha. 1y
SamanthaMarie @NeesyBeth I've tried putting everything in one journal but I'm too scattered if I try that. I so admire the "Bullet journal" strain of journaling. 1y
SamanthaMarie @CouronneDhiver I've done that before!! :) I used to have a journal specifically for that through high school and college. I should try and find it and see what prayers were answered/lessons learned/compare how my faith has changed. Such a good tool in our faith:) 1y
Crazeedi @CouronneDhiver as I've gotten older, my journals have focused more on my faith too. 1y

Edit: I keep a record on goodreads, Pinterest, & here on Litsy. I would like a written record as well.
I just bought this lovely little journal to keep a written record of the books I‘ve read. One problem...I‘m debating between writing down everything I‘ve read or the more recent years. Both have their pros and cons. What do you all think? Should I go back to the beginning of time, or start with books read within the last 4 years or so?? 🤔 💭

quirkyreader A huge pink binder with tabs for sections of the authors. And the tabs are in alphabetical order. As well as keeping track on my goodreads page. 1y
britt_brooke I use GR and the notes app in my iPhone. I love the idea of a journal but my handwriting sucks. 1y
RebelReader I started writing mine down in 2012. I didn‘t go back, but only because I worried I wouldn‘t be accurate. 1y
See All 8 Comments
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick The most up-to-date list is the Notes App on my phone. I have 1 list per year starting in 2014. I also use GR, so that one includes some I definitely read prior to 2014. This year I have a separate planner for my book life. It's not as full as I hoped (with challenges & pictures) but I try logging books I acquire, release dates, and a list of those read in the back, along with which ones were reviewed. 1y
Cubanmommy95 I also use Goodreads, here and my bullet journal. I only have maybe the last 5 years in there or so just because I can‘t remember all the old ones. 1y
rubyslippersreads I use GR. I keep up with current books, but also go back and add past reads. Once in awhile I‘ll suddenly think of a book I read ages ago and will add it. I just wish I‘d been keeping a book journal my entire life, because I‘m sure I‘ve forgotten a lot. 1y
kgriffith I track on LibraryThing and since Litsy came along, I‘ve come in here to catch my reading for the year up on my thread in the 75-book challenge Talk group. I keep trying to do some kind of book tracking in my passion planner but it‘s very inconsistent. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 1y
kgriffith @rubyslippersreads I do that here, when someone posts about a book I‘ve read but not since Litsy was born, I‘ll stack it from their post. 1y

I'm a bit obsessed with journals. I can't even journal. I collect them bright eyed and a bushy tailed, with the hopes of one day being able to just write without direct. Still haven't broken the seal on a single blank journal but that doesn't mean I don't love them! #inspirationalasfuck

KtheBookwyrm @MisfitNerdBooks right now I‘m playing catch up. This is my yearly TBR, as I read a book off of it, I‘ll put a sticker on it. It‘s divided into months, some books will get reviews as I finish reading them, I‘ll do a monthly wrap up at the end and there will be specialized pages throughout as inspiration strikes. I‘m keeping it pretty simple so it doesn‘t become too time consuming 2y

Found this little gem at Walmart for $4! It has Coptic binding so it will lay flat, which means I can use the whole page! And Kraft paper pages so pasting, painting, drawing, or anything else I decide to do should be a-ok.

Planning on starting my long planned book journal. I‘m going to try to find a journal today or tomorrow and then get stuff around to be printed out so I can get started in May. Plenty to do between now and then


Have to use this until the book is put in the system.

Another meh book for me. Just not good characterization and some forced storylines.

I completed my first reading journal, which I started on 4-1-2017. It was among the goodies in my Valentine's Day swap box. I never journaled, so #BlameitonLitsy, because now I cannot imagine writing a little something about every book I read.

So thank you all for being such a wonderful bad influence on my reading proclivities. I love every moment!🤗💕❤️💟

I bought me a brand new Midori #TravelersNotebook today! They aren't cheap but I'm a #journal /notebook junkie so, on a whim, I decided to take the plunge. 🤗

Any other notebook/journal nuts out there? @GarthRanzz you've posted a bit about this I think, yeah?

The lady at the store was laughing at me cuz I bought this and a bunch of inserts but also bought another different notebook separately because...I...Just. Had. To. Have. It. 😅

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Nice! There‘s a lot of #bulletjournal and #bujo posts on Litsy if you check out those and similar tags. 2y
GrilledCheeseSamurai @Riveted_Reader_Melissa ooooh. Nice. Thanks for the hashtag tip! 👍🙃 Most of my journaling is World Building fantasy/scifi D&D type stuff. 🤗 2y
cobwebmoth I get a little thrill when I buy a new journal or notebook.😊 2y

GarthRanzz I just got my #Mindori #bujo this week! Haven‘t had a chance to start using it yet but @catebutler helped set it up for me. 2y
GrilledCheeseSamurai @cobwebmoth Right? I have so many I just can't help myself when I see one I want. I'm hoping this one will kind of consolidate alot into one space for me. All I know for certain is this means I have a Michael's shopping spree coming up this weekend now! 🤗🤸‍♂️❤️😍🤗 2y
TricksyTails I‘m obsessed with journals and pens, especially with all Japanese stationery. These are pretty awesome and customizable. They are available in the travel journal size too. https://www.1101.com/store/techo/en/ Sometimes I get a journal that‘s too pretty and I don‘t even want to write in it. 😍 2y
xicanti I loooooooove my knockoff traveller's notebooks. (The originals are too far outside my budget.) I have two I use for writing-related stuff, including worldbuilding, progress logs, and character-related art. 2y
GrilledCheeseSamurai @xicanti I was gonna get a knock off one too on Amazon but then today I wandered into a store and saw them so I just went for it. 😅 2y
GrilledCheeseSamurai @TricksyTails I have a bunch of blank ones kicking around too. They are so nice and I don't wanna fuck 'em up with my brutish man hands. 😂 2y
Ash11hope I Love notebooks!!! I had alot but now I have no clue where 99% went, kinda want more, and maybe store them in a big box so don't lose anymore, hopefully 😂😂😂 2y
xicanti I used to fondle the sample ones at my favourite indie, until they stopped carrying them. They're so, so lovely, and I adore the way they mark up as you carry them around. 2y
TricksyTails @xicanti I‘m so happy to know I‘m not the only one who fondles them! ♥️ 2y
TricksyTails Do you have a pen preference for writing in your journals? 2y
xicanti @TricksyTails it's important to fondle the notebooks so they know you love them. 2y
Redwritinghood I‘m also a notebook junkie. I have a bunch and always looking for excuses to buy more. 2y
GrilledCheeseSamurai @TricksyTails I do. My favorites are the Microns. 2bd up would be jelly rollers. I'm actually doing research into fountain Pens right now and think I'ma take the plunge and order 1 to see if I like it. Not a crazy expensive one but some company called Lamy makes (apparently) decent ones. We'll see. Microns are my fav though. Love me the archival inks! 🤗 2y
wordslinger42 Same! I love leather journals. There's really nothing better! I usually buy mine from Barnes & Noble, but I did find a really beautiful, handmade suede journal in a country craft store (not where I expected to find one!) 2y
teebe 🙋🏻‍♀️Total stationery junkie. I have a notebook for pretty much everything but I still have a box full of blank notebooks 🤦🏻‍♀️ (edited) 2y
GrilledCheeseSamurai I am so excited to know you all and to be able to geek out with you over this stuff. I was telling people at work about buying this today and they all just looked at me like I was an alien. I told them they were all fired. 😂@Riveted_Reader_Melissa @cobwebmoth @GarthRanzz @TricksyTails @xicanti @Ash11hope @Redwritinghood @wordslinger42 @teebe 2y
wordslinger42 Bahaha serves them right for not appreciating all the wonderful journals out there! I'm taking the obsession to the next level, though -- I'm slowly collecting the supplies I need to start bookbinding so I can make my own journals! 2y
GrilledCheeseSamurai @wordslinger42 that's awesome! I've totally been watching YouTube videos of that over the past few days! 🤗😅👌 2y
cobwebmoth Micron pens are my favorites! I'm always happy to find I'm not alone in my geekery.😊 2y
wordslinger42 I didn't even think to check YouTube for that! Are the videos helpful? Having some good tutorials would be great! 2y
GarthRanzz 😆 Sounds like any time I mention books or comics in general. But who do they come to when they want to know about the latest blockbuster movie based on either? 👈 2y
GrilledCheeseSamurai @wordslinger42 I found them helpful. I don't know if I'll ever attempt it myself...but the joy of using a killer journal that I actually made myself is pretty tempting! 2y
JenlovesJT47 Me! 🙋🏻🙋🏻🙋🏻I find myself buying notebooks/journals constantly even though I haven't filled up half of them. 😅 I love to journal. #needallthenotebooks 2y
TricksyTails Ooh! Ooh! I love Microns. I love stationery and journals but I am a slightly bigger pen geek. I‘ve been wanting to get into fountain pens too. I failed miserably with the Lamy Safari. I have a death grip when writing and ruined the nib. 😅 So I‘m practicing with the more affordable Platinum Preppy until I learn to loosen my grip. If you haven‘t read it yet, this is helpful https://www.jetpens.com/blog/the-beginners-guide-to-fountain-pens/pt/927 2y

I‘m starting a new foray in the journaling world. One of my Valentine‘s Day presents was a @travelers_company journal. I‘ve been admiring these for a while but I‘ve been so daunted by the skill of those who legitimately journal. But, I‘ve taken the plunge, bought way too many supplies, and gone down another YouTube rabbit hole, seeking out inspiration and how-to‘s. Any tips, do share!

#bulletjournal #bujo #journal #journaling #travelersnotebook

EvieBee How lovely! Welcome. I just started and have really been enjoying it. Would you believe my husband now has one? 2y
catebutler @EvieBee Thanks Eve! Do you ever post photos of your journal spreads? I‘d love to see them if you do! And I think it‘s great he has one too! I actually convinced my BF to get one too, he saw how much fun I was having and determined he had to join in too! It made me laugh! 2y
EvieBee @catebutler Lol That is funny! I just started but I‘ve posted 2 layouts! One year at a glance and one weekly. I‘m still trying to figure what I need and what I don‘t so much. I‘ll be sure to post this week‘s spread. I‘m a day behind. 2y

catebutler @EvieBee I‘ll have to go back and take another look at them! I feel the same way, there‘s so much out there, it‘s a but daunting. I definitely like the minimalistic look, so I‘m trying to be selective. 2y
JazzFeathers That's awesome! I've just started myself inspired by so many Littens. It us great fun 😄 2y
catebutler @JazzFeathers Thanks Sarah! Can‘t wait to see some of your journal pages. It really is a fun pastime isn‘t it!? 2y

Already failing at a New Year‘s resolution to journal more. I hope that the fact that this is so cute will inspire me. 🙏🏽

UnabridgedPod I had the same goal...and have also not been doing a great job with it. :/ 2y

#readingchallenge2018 I‘m committing to reading 75 books this year over at #LibraryThing and 36 of those promised to be #ROOTs ( read our own tomes) or #BOMBS if you prefer (books on my book shelf) and I‘m attempting the #readharder and #popsugar2018 challenges simultaneously.

VioletBramble Welcome to Litsy! Are you in the 75 Books Challenge group at Library Thing? I did that for a few years but the group is so large I couldn't keep up. I moved to the smaller Category Challenge group in 2011. Still can't keep up. 2y
Quasifesto @VioletBramble Yes I‘m in that group. I‘m not very active there, but I love #librarything 2y
kgriffith @Quasifesto Welcome! I‘m also in the 75 challenge on LibraryThing and also an employee 😊 2y

Spending a lazy Sunday afternoon binge-watching Series 2 of The Missing, which features David Morrissey, Keeley Hawes, Roger Allam, and Laura Fraser. I'm trying out "liveblogging" the episodes in my journal as a substitute for (or really, a supplement to) talking to the TV ? I've blacked out potential spoilers.

I‘m jumping on the journal bandwagon. I saw this beauty at a 10,000 Villages fundraiser and had to have it. Handmade paper with a cover woven from recycled newspapers. The perfectionist in me laments the lack of grid (I envy you bujo users) but I also know I have to keep it basic to keep up with it. I‘m going to track my #LitsyAtoZ and list books as I read them.

DebinHawaii It's so pretty! 💜 2y
