The Best Bullet Journal Supplies for Readers

Bullet journals are awesome. I started my first one in January, and, while it didn’t exactly go super well, it did give me an idea of what works and what doesn’t work for me. I’ve started my 2019 bujo and I’m loving it. They’re the perfect way to have a planner and journal perfect for you. You can get as artsy or as simple as you want. It by no means has to be perfect. It only has to be whatever you want it to be! For 2019 I have pages tracking my review copies for my blog, book releases I’m excited about, and, of course, the Read Harder challenge! Some people have their TBR in there, but mine is just far too big. One of the best parts of bullet journaling, if you ask me, is getting fun supplies! There are tons of cool things you can get that add a special touch. Printables, stamps, washi tape, you name it! I’ve rounded up some of the best bullet journal supplies for readers—and have added most of them to my wish list.


Printables are great for those who know what they want, but aren’t as artistically inclined or interested in drawing certain spreads out themselves. These are some awesome printable spreads from Etsy that are perfect for readers.

Books About Bullet Journals

And, as we’re talking about readers here, I thought some of you might want to read about bullet journals before diving in!

The bullet journal method book coverThe Bullet Journal Method: Track the Past, Order the Present, Design the Future by Ryder Carroll

Here, the creator of the original Bullet Journal system takes you through his organization process. The original is pretty bare bones, so if you want your journal more streamlined, this is a good start!

The Bullet Journal for Beginners by Karen Lancaster

As the idea of Bullet Journaling caught on, people began getting more creative with it. Here, Lancaster gives beginners ideas for spreads and miscellaneous information you might find useful!

the ultimate brush lettering guide book coverThe Ultimate Brush Lettering Guide: A Complete Step-by-Step Creative Workbook to Jump-Start Modern Calligraphy Skills by Peggy Dean

While not exactly about Bullet Journaling, this book will help you up your brush lettering game! A lot of bullet journalers (myself included) use brush pens to make calligraphy in our journals. I’ve been using this book to hone my techniques (I’m not great at it yet) and practice. It comes with some really handy worksheets!
