I am a planner person. I really got into the hobby a few years ago, and I find the act of physically organizing my tasks and schedule very soothing. There are so many different formats that planning can take. Some people use blank journals and create their own system. Some people purchase planners with the time blocking and task listing built in. And sure, you can simply use a pen to list out your to dos…but where’s the fun in that? Planning is an industry, complete with YouTube channels, Instagram accounts, Etsy shops, and endless opportunities to acquire new supplies.

Even more fun than just keeping track of the time? Building in the tracking of your reading! The internet is swimming with ideas for organizing your TBR, rating and reviewing titles you’ve read, and celebrating the act of reading itself, all within the pages of your planner. There might be a connection between being a reader and being a planner, but I doubt it. The amazing planning industry has themed kits for every niche under the sun. I have stickers to remind me to take my meds and mark off roller derby practices in my schedule. But my favorite stash of all is my bookish planner supplies.

Below I’ve gathered a bounty of sticky bookish things to make your planner thrive. Whether you’re decorating a spread or tracking your reading, there is something for you!
