Here’s a little book to keep track of all the books you read. I used it last year and recommend it highly. It was fun to fill out, gave me lots of ideas and recommendations, helped me understand what kind of books I like and made me remember them better.
The journal has space to record 100 books. Each entry includes space for book statistics, dates for starting and finishing the book, a rating scale, and space for comments or quotes. But in between, there are a lot of other cool features. These include 25 book lists on various topics. There’s a place to set reading goals, tips to overcome a reading rut, a book club guide and more. There is space to analyze your reading style and tastes, keep track of a To Be Read list, bookstores to visit, favorite quotes and a log of borrowed or loaned books. At the end, you get a chance to reflect on the books you have read and choose your favorites.
This book helped me remember so many more facts about the books I read. (If I can’t remember, I can always check my notes.) I gained confidence in not finishing a book that wasn’t working, because I wanted to fill the pages as quickly as possible. I always thought I read mostly non-fiction, but the facts are it’s evenly divided between fiction and non-fiction. And just to see the last 100 books I’ve read listed out is pretty amazing!
You can purchase this book on Amazon. My Reading Life was written by Anne Bogel.

I use this journal, also. It has been really fun writing down my thoughts and keeping track of what I’m reading.
That sounds like a neat journal. However I am quite content with the Goodreads app.
