Now that I am done with NaNoWriMo, I am being haunted by my to-read stack. It is really out of control and only gets worse every three weeks when I go to the library. I can never bring myself to return books without checking out more. And then there’s my Amazon Prime (affiliate link) membership, where I buy books with one click and free two day shipping. I’m addicted, that’s all there is to it. Plus, I am now in an awesome book club, and I need to manage that reading list as well, otherwise it’s just wine club (Although really, who is against wine club? Not me).
Here is the to-read printable list I will be using, in purple:
To combat this I decided I needed a to-read printable. But I could not find one anywhere that fit my needs. I decided to make my own, and share them with you guys. It works for me, so hopefully it works for someone else. It is the first printable I’ve ever made, and I did a variety of colors.
I included the last few columns for a reason. First, if a book is recommended by someone I want to be able to tell them what I thought afterwards. Second, the date I bought the book or checked it out from the library matters to me for two reasons (a) to stop reading only new books and get to the bottom of my pile sooner; (b) so that I can keep track for my 101 in 1001. Third, “Finished” is because I love checking things off of a list! :)
If you would like to print your own list for keeping track of your reading list, you can download a variety of colors here:
