Tracking my Reading in 2018

I’m starting to get all reflective and shit about the last year. Currently I’m reflecting on how I tracked things. I have an almost completely filled Hobonichi Techo and a new one waiting for me on January 1st. It’s pretty great to pick up my 2017 one and see it all chunky from use.

I feel like there are so many different apps and tools out there to track reading. I want to really simplify my life when it comes to these items so here is my arsenal for reading tracking next year.

  1. Bookout is my new default tracking method. I want to utilize it starting January 1st to make a real effort to track how much time I spend reading, quotes and memorable items from each book I’m reading. I like that the app has a running time you can pause and add notes from for each book.
  2. Goodreads will of course be utilized like always, but I plan to take my TBR down on there by a LOT.
  3. Reading bullet journal – I’ve been doing this since I started blogging and using a cahier sized notebook to track books read and blog posts each month. It’s gone great so far and I update it once a week or so. It’s the failsafe if technology ever fails me I have it as a back up.
  4. A google sheet – I want to track books that interest me in 2018 on it, what I read in 2018 and hopefully continue to use the sheet in years to come. Again another failsafe from other sites.

How do you track your reading? What are you reflecting on about 2017? Do you plan to make 2018 at least a bit better?
