Hard to believe we’re almost halfway through the Roaring Diseased Confusing Twenties, but we are. It’s about to be 2024, and maybe time feels like it’s passing too quickly, given the speed and volume of information we get every day. A calendar can be a grounding force: the physical reminder of our days passing. At the end of the year, you can look back on your calendar and see everything you managed to write down in it. If you’re looking for inspiration or a fresh start to each day, week, or month, you can peruse 2024 bookish calendars.

Refreshing a calendar to a new month is a great reminder that it’s an opportunity for a new start. Instead of putting so much pressure on January to be the beginning of every new hobby I want to try or change I want to make, I use a monthly calendar for a monthly goal. Whether that’s cooking more or writing every morning, I try to see each month as an opportunity to explore as opposed to putting pressure on the year to be transformative. And if I accomplish relatively little in the month, at least I’m still here, and the next month is an opportunity to try something new.

For book lovers, every month is a new story, and we can get inspired by the chosen imagery for the coming weeks. Find your best bookish calendar focused on reading, specific books, and more.
