A FREE printable for bookworms – the reading journal

21st March 2018

A few weeks ago, I announced I had some exciting plans for the blog.  It’s been a hard slog to get things looking how I want them to look and to perfect my delivery of them.

I have decided that I’m just going to be straight up and make it really easy for you.

Today, I am launching my brand-new collection of printables.  Over time, I’ll add to the collection and try to cover all page sizes and formats.  Right now, though, I’m kind of focusing on A5 printables as that is the size I use in my planner.

This one won’t appeal to all of you but there’s definitely going to be some of you who will find a use for it. 

Introducing the readers delight, my reading journal. 

I have been writing a lot of book reviews recently and the reading journal is proving to be a valuable addition to my beautiful and functional planner.

When I first start a book, I fill out the information.  Title, author and start date.  If I have any important first impressions I also jot them down.  Then, it generally gets left until the end unless I have something important to add to my notes.  The kinds of things I will add before finishing the book includes boredom levels, excitement etc.
Once I finish reading, I add the end date and my rating before writing up my thoughts. 

My reading journal is available in A5 only but two separate formats.  You can print on A5 paper if your printer is able to do that.  Or, you can print A5 on A4 paper.  To download, click the download button on the toolbar.

The next printable will be one for the bloggers… Don’t want to miss it?  Sign up for updates using the form to the right at the top of the post.

What do you think of the reading journal? Do you have any ideas for printables you would like me to make?  Let me know in the comments.

    What a lovely idea! I used to be such a big bookworm before I had my son and my blog and sadly I just don’t have the same time for it now x
