No matter what you call it – a reading journal, reading log, book tracker, reading list, reading diary, or digital journal – you can be sure THIS is the tool to help you make the most of your reading in 2024!
I began tracking my reading in 2020 and it drastically changed my reading patterns. Before I started tracking my reading, I read around 25-30 books a year. No small feat and I was quite proud of that!
What I didn’t expect in 2020 was to take my reading from 30 to 130 books simply by setting a goal and using a visual tracker! I knew I was on to something great when I recognized the excitement within me to record my latest read and see my progress grow.
The same goal was met in 2021, 2022, and again in 2023. Reading 100 books in a year is quite a large goal, but I’ve done it year after year, happily, because I feel the benefits of a strong and healthy goals!
One of my favorite ways to celebrate reaching this goal is to make a book ornament that showcases every book I read that year. You can read all about it here and download a free template to make your own!
When I left teaching in 2022, I told my third grade students the news by explaining that I had the unique opportunity to take my love of reading and help adults fall back in love with it. I connected it to our own experiences in the classroom by reminding them I taught many of them how to read in Kindergarten.
This reading journal is one of many ways I’m working to do just that.
