Reading has always been a hobby for me, but in recent years, I find it harder to find the time to read as much as I'd like.
I always image I will read all sorts of exciting novels, scary horror stories and murder mysteries, romance novels, and the list goes on.
Regardless of the genre, a good book has a way of transporting you to another place!
BUT, life can sometimes get in the way.
Hopefully this free reading log will help you (AND me) improve our summer reading. My hope is that my reading habits will carryover to the rest of the year!
Lately, I've been very interested in audiobooks. While I think reading an old-fashioned book is best, I also think it is completely fine to keep track of the audiobooks you listen to on your favorite device in addition to the ones you actually "read".

Use the book review template to rate the books on your reading list. This will give you a better idea of the types of books or authors you enjoy most.
Goodreads is also a wonderful way to keep track of this information online. No subscription is needed and you do not need to pay to access.
I enjoy using Goodreads to get book recommendations from other book lovers with similar interests as mine. I only follow a few friends that I consider to have great taste in books. So many of my book ideas come from their reading lists.

One thing I love to do is print out sheets such as these on a full size adhesive label to make my own sticker! I print it to the size of my yearly planner and stick it on one of the blank pages in the back part of my planner.
The back of my planner is where I keep lots of lists of things I want to remember.
Other ideas for lists to keep in your planner:
- When did I last...
- Medical / Doctor visits
- Car maintenance log
- Books you want to read
- Movies / shows you want to watch
