Calling all book lovers- you gotta download our free printable reading journal today! You can journal every book you read in your planner or binder using this super cute template. We have a space to journal everything about the book you’re reading like rating, quotes, notes and thoughts. We’ll even show you how to resize this for just about any planner!
Just like you I’ve been stuck at home during this oh so long worldwide quarantine (since March 3rd…if we’re keeping score) but I’m staying busy in mind and body. I’m making lots of stickers for you guys (like these “cancelled” event stickers and my quarantine bucket list stickers) and I’m logging a record amount audio books!
Like you, I love reading books on my Kindle when I have those precious moments to relax and decompress. While I love reading on my Kindle…I find I have less and less time to actually sit down and physically read a book (as much as I would like to). But, that’s okay because I’ve found a better way to and that is Kindle Unlimited Audio Books!
I feel like Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited subscription helps me up my productivity level because I’m learning something new (I lean towards business, financial & self improvement books personally) while I’m also getting something else important done. With the weather improving I can listen to audio books while I’m in the garden or taking care of projects around the house.
My Kindle Unlimited Subscription gives me access to unlimited books, audio books and tons of magazines (great for hammock time)! If you didn’t already know this, you don’t even have to have Kindle…you can download their app to any device to listen or view books (iphone, samsung etc).
So, if you (or someone you love) is bored to death of quarantine (or teetering on the edge of total melt down) check out the 30 day unlimited FREE trial Amazon is offering! That means unlimited books, audio books AND magazines! You can use it yourself or gift it to someone else ready to throw the towel in.
I 100% attribute my quarantine sanity with the ability to keep mind and body occupied. So, if you find yourself with more time than sanity these days, you gotta give their free trial a shot!
Okay fellow book lovers, lets check out this FREE printable reading journal I made for you this week!
We’ve recently added an audio book log for those of you who like to listen to audio books. You can see what it looks like below.
We also have a fun, FREE Printable Bookshelf Reading Log that you may prefer over this reading journal. It allows you to write in and color in your books as you read them on a “bookshelf”. This is super popular with bullet journal aficionados. I thought some of my planner fans may enjoy it too. If you want to download the bookshelf you can check it out HERE.
You can upload our free printable reading journal into the web based program Picmonkey if you want to digitally overlay text like we did above. You can also color in the books or star ratings with colored pencils or pens as you go but that’s totally optional!
How To Resize, Print & Punch This FREE Printable Reading Journal:
This FREE printable bookshelf reading log is A4 full 8.5 x 11 sheet but they can be resized to fit just about any planner (Happy Planner, Erin Condren, Filofax, Franklin, Arc etc) using THIS print resizing guide (this is also a pin on Pinterest that you can save for later to your planner boards for reference).
You’ll need to adjust your printout higher or lower using the print settings function on your computer. There should be a setting to adjust (by percentage) higher or lower within the print set up window. You may need to experiment a little bit but it is possible to shrink or enlarge these files easily during the printing process.
If you plan on putting these in your discbound Happy Planner you’ll want to punch them with the Mambi 9 Hole Punch. For Ring-Bound Planners (such as Filofax), I recommend using an adjustable 6-hole paper punch so that it can punch many different planner sizes. If you have a spiral bound planner like the Erin Condren then you’ll want to use this adjustable hole punch.
I also recommend that you print this on matte card stock if you think you might be moving this around in your Happy Planner significantly. The holes you will need to punch will degrade after repeated removals if you use plain printer paper.
I hope you love this super cute, FREE printable reading journal as much as I do! We are in the process of adding a ton of planner printables to our library so stay tuned!
