41 TOTAL! I've been looking for new ways to track & present info, so here is an experiment. I've got reading method (mostly print), content format (mostly graphic due to #letsgetgraphicweeklongreadathon), source (mostly library), etc. I checked 6 books off my #mountTBR shelf, gave an equal amount of 3/4/5 star ratings & read 51% books written by women. Gotta work on that #POCauthor stat-32% isn't good enough. See comments for recommendations! ⬇️

Natasha.C.Barnes Absolute favorites of Jan: The Idiot, Private Citizens, Exit West, White Tears. 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes Best Of Graphic marathon reads: Here, SuperMutant Magic Academy, The Gigantic Beard That Was Evil, This One Summer, any Giant Days, anything Lucy Knisley. 2y

readingwinds This is a fantastic way to visually breakdown your reading month. My pies would be a bit wonky as I did not read as much and all my books came from the library, but I might try this out. 2y
hes7 Yay! 🎉 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @readingwinds Well you certainly don't have to do them all, there are so many different trackable things. I'd never even think to track where the book came from but I'm trying to get through my #mountTBR so I will want to keep tracking how many were owned (acquired 2017 or before) and how many were new (acquired in 2018) 2y
LiteraryinLititz This is so cool! I‘m thinking of starting my own #bujo for 2018. I could start with my 2018 stats. Do you have any suggestions for how to get started? Is there a kind of journal most people use? Thanks! 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @LiteraryinLititz I just started last September, I can tell you what I use. I have a notebook from Rhodia (the webnotebook I think) that looks like a moleskin but the paper is better, but it's also STUPID expensive. I have some great cheapo plastic stencils from Amazon that work great (sold by a million ppl, they're literally the same). I use color pens from Le Pen and Staedtler and Tombow colored markers (cont) 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @LiteraryinLititz definitely get the Tombow if you can bc so many markets bleed through but these you can hardly see at all from the other side. And washi tape! Washi tape is the best. 2y
DivaDiane I love the graphs! I just started a Bujo in December, but it‘s REALLY basic. No pretty colors or Washi tape! 2y
