I’m not a person who sets reading goals. They stress me out far too much, and when you work with books all day long, the reality is sometimes goals are impossible when you’re also trying to ensure you’re reading or writing about things you know others want to know about. That isn’t to say I don’t make short TBR lists or that I don’t track my reading after I’ve finished a book — I do, and I use this reading log in an edited-down version.
That all said, I know so many readers love being more organized and intentional in their reading than me, and one way to do just that is through the use of fun reading tracker bookmarks. The beauty of a reading tracker bookmark is that you’ll always know where it is and because it’s so portable, if you finish a book while on the go, you don’t have to remember to input it when you return.
Also? Many of these reading trackers are just aesthetically pleasing or they allow you as a reader to add a little creativity at the end of a read.
Let’s take a look at a few fun reading tracker bookmarks. Snag one or two and either set some goals, track those already in progress, or — this might be my favorite idea — tuck one of these inside a book you gift to someone else.
