I’ve talked a lot before about how much I love my bullet journal to track every aspect of my life! I use it to track my weight loss, healthy eating, Christmas gifts, even who I’m sending Christmas cards to!
One thing that I love tracking in my bullet journal is the books that I want to read. An important part of self-development is reading lots of different books on different subjects. When I’m reading a book or article it will often reference another book that I want to read. In the past, I might write it down on a scrap of paper or try to remember the name of the book next time I was looking for something to read.
That technique didn’t work so well! I hate to think about the number of amazing books that I have missed out on reading because I forgot the name of them!
So when I started using a bullet journal to track different aspects of my life, it seemed only natural to make a list of the books I want to read too.
Below is my Reading List. I got the idea from Instagram and Pinterest to draw a bookcase and books. As I find a book that I want to read, I write the name on one of the books. Once I’ve read the book I get to color it in!
It actually makes me more motivated to get through my reading list because I want to color in all the books and make the page all really pretty!
There’s so many different ways to use your bullet journal. It really is an amazing way to keep yourself organized. My life is so much easier with a bullet journal!
I also love having a creative outlet. I’m not really an artist, but while working on a new spread I often zone out and it helps clear my mind.
