50+ Beautiful Bujo Spread Ideas to Track Your Reading

Now, some of you may be asking yourselves, “What are bujos?” So here’s a brief introduction: bujos, or bullet journals, are a sort of DIY planner. They start with a blank notebook—I personally use one with a dot grid—and then you create a planner system for yourself. The DIY nature provides unlimited customizability, and a lot of people are doing some really creative things with their bujos. A bujo spread is just a section of a bujo; it can be a tracker, a regular ol’ planner section, or your big monthly spread.

Trackers are one of the things you can add to your bujo to hold yourself accountable for various tasks or just to keep a record. There are mood trackers, chore trackers, exercise trackers, and, of course, reading trackers!

If you’re feeling a bit lost, check out this guide that explains everything much more in depth.

01.01.2020 ! Happy New Year everybody! As I am starting this new year, I couldn’t help reflect on my goals and progress from last year. (Let’s be real 🙈. Bookstagram kinda forced me to do it 😜). ⁣ ⁣ I started my new year with a high ambitious goal of reading 100 books. I joined @theguywiththebook on his #betterreadschallenge and went on a reading spree until 206/365. I was doing well and on track to achieving all my goals, or so I thought. Then came my PhD qualifying examinations, summer paper, defending my summer paper. It was a really complicated and tense time. I did manage to get some reading done, however, I could not jot down the progress and keep track of it. ⁣ ⁣ My final count for 2019 is 40 books. I failed miserably in achieving all my goals. However, on a professional and personal front – I have progressed and it is that progress I am going to focus on. Positivity for the win, right? ⁣ ⁣ As a side note, this is my heart shaped book tracker for 2020. I set it up as part of my #bujo journal. What do you think?

Super simple reading list. Started my first book of 2020: Heartland by Sarah Smarsh. Really great read so far— would highly recommend to anyone interested in issues of socioeconomic class and American politics. . . . What’s on your reading list this year? I’m definitely always looking for book recommendations, so let me know if you have any must reads! . . . — #bulletjournal #bujo #bujolove #bujoaddict #bujospread #journaling #planner #planneraddict #bujoideas #bujoinspire #stationeryaddict #bulletjournaljunkies #bujojunkies #mossery #showmeyourplanner #showmeyourbulletjournal #plannercommunity #bulletjournalcommunity #bujocommunity #plannernerd #planner_daily #pwm #functionalplanning #bujo2019 #bujogram #minimalistbujo #booktracker #readinglist #bookspread

What’s on your reading list for 2020? . . I’ve got a lots of technical manuals in the lineup because I need them, but I’m also looking forward to reading as many of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld books as I can short to. . . This is my first grayscale page, I’m curious to see whether I prefer the colorful and intricate pages or the minimalistic ones more.

It's time for another #FridayFreebie!⁣ Check out my bio to sign up to receive this #FreePrintable book tracker.⁣ This is a simple way to add a book tracker layout to your Bullet Journal or other planner. Just write in the title, author, date started/finished and color in the stars for your rating.⁣ I'm off to slow a start this year with my reading, so I only have a couple spots filled in. But by the end of the year I'm sure i'll have several pages of books read to look back on. I may add a master list on the page to the left, of books I want to read this year. ⁣ Sign up for my email list or join my facebook reading den to receive yours!⁣ ⁣ -I added this printable to bullet journal pages of my @goodbusyplanner –

For Those Who Want Detailed Notes

📘2020 Reading Journal Setup. I changed up my categories a bit to squeeze a few more columns in. I included my 2019 spread in the 3rd photo for another option. Categories as follows: # Book count Date Read: date I finish the book F/NF: Fiction or Nonfiction Genre: take your best guess or look to Goodreads for how the book is categorized. You’ll get better at this over time. PG: pages in the book (if I listened on audio, I still track pages) Publisher: I enjoy tracking this. Patterns emerge. Pub Yr: The year the book was originally published Source: How I heard of the book – specific friend, @bookofthemonth, @whatshouldireadnext, The Modern Mrs. Darcy Summer Reading Guide or if it’s the MMD Book Club pick, etc. Form: Format I read the book – Hardcover, paperback, Kindle, Audible, Libro.fm Of Color: an author of color Fem Auth: a female author In Trans: a book in translation *: star rating 1-5 Note that this is a setup that I use as a snapshot. I will keep more detailed notes on each book, such as what I liked about the book and why I gave it the rating that I did, later in the journal. I use this spread as a quick overview of what I read. I like having all the books I read gathered in a few pages in my journal for quick access. It makes scanning my year very easy when I need to compile data or when recommending books to friends. 📘 What about you? What are you interested in tracking this year? 📘 #bookjournal #readingjournal #readingjournals #bujoforbooklovers #bujoinspiration #bujobooktracker #leuchtturm1917 #booktracker #myreadinglife #bookstagram #bookworm #booknerd #bookish #modernmrsdarcy #modernmrsdarcybookclub

How do you keep track of your reading? . . So I’ve been pestered repeatedly by you guys to post my 2020 reading spreads. Now because I have an actual reading journal this year to keep track of my books in, I didn’t have to make very many spreads. But here are the two I decided to go with this year. . ✏️ the first spread has 4 separate trackers on it. . ✏️In the top left is my ARC tracker. It’s a great way to keep on top of your obligations and to read the ones with the highest priority based on date. When you’ve read and posted your review you get to check it off. . ✏️ bottom left is my genre tracker. Here I use it as a bar graph and I colour in a section each time I finish a book in that genre. I left two empty spaces at the top encase I read a genre I don’t usually! . ✏️ top right are my line graphs. The first one is a bookstagram tracker because why not? Hahah and the second one is to keep track of books read to purchased and audiobooks to physical! . ✏️ bottom right is my star tracker! Basically every time I rate a book I put a tally mark beside the rating I gave it. . ✏️ next page is a yearly book release tracker. Under each month is a section to write down the books your most excited for that come out that month. You can even put a coloured dot on the date to track when it will be released! . ✏️not only are these spreads fun, it’s also a great way to keep track of how your reading is going. If I am reading a large quantity of a genre and my star ratings are low than maybe it’s time to switch to something else. I’ve always found it useful and I hope you can get something out of it too xxx if you copy any of my spreads, tag me in it so I can see!! . . . ⠀⠀ #snowywoods #winterbujo #winter #bulletjournalcommunity #bulletjournalideas #bulletjournal #bulletjournaling #bujoideas #bujo #bujo2020 #bulletjournalsetup #bujo2020 #2020bujo #bujoinspiration #bujomonthly #natureart #art #planner_daily #showmeyourbulletjournals #inspiringbujo #booktracker #readingjournal #readingtracker #becauseofreading #bookaddict #bookfeature #bookishfeature #booksbooksbooks #booksofig

I don’t do those pretty bookshelf reading spreads since I’m not big into books but my kid and I go to the library a lot so I need a way to track when things are due, what we really liked, etc. I made this library tracker and it’s worked really well. I can see when things are due and if we return things early I fill in the circle. If we liked it a lot it gets a gold ⭐️ I also liked to tally up all the new books/movies we read and watched for the month. Using @wontoninamillion stickers and washi for this spread. #bulletjournal #bujo #bujoideas #bujoinspo #bujoinspiration #librarytracker #readingtracker #booktracker #bujotracker #bujotrackers #planneraddict #planneraddicts #bujoideas1 #bujojunkie

Time to read… I love my book collection. Lately I haven’t taken too much time reading. The last book I started was a bit disappointing, especially coz I hoped it would be a quick and motivating read. But I never finished it or even started a different book afterwards. And I know I should. So this page is going to hold me accountable for reading and tracking the books. I made this bookshelf “read” and I will be filling it with books as I finish reading them. Colors will be based on how much I liked the book. • • • #bujo #bujolove #bujoinspiration #bujoideas #bujospread #bujolover #planner #plannergirl #booktracker #bookshelf #read #trackbooks #bulletjournal #bulletjournaling #bujonewbie #2020books

I'm all about monochrome and shadows right now 😍 especially in my bullet journal! This is my 2020 book tracker, I love the idea if bookshelves but it just doesnt work for me so instead I'm going to be drawing a mini version of the book covers with my rating underneath. Cute, right? And I have this box for my end of year stats too! . First read was a pretty good start to the year, I'm now reading One Of Us Is Next by Karen M McManus, which I preordered a good 6 months ago and I'm so into it!

2019 reading challenge completed! Record topped! Yay! . . . I totally panicked and biffed it while highlighting the book total, but no takesies backsies! I WANTED it to look that way 😂 . . . This spread was very satisfying to color in while I finished books! Thank you random stencil for your services! 💜 I am not expecting to break this record anytime soon, but I kind of hope so because I love coloring with highlighters 🤩 . . .
