Track your reading in 2022 Using Bullet Journals

Welcome back to Lamon Reviews.

With 2022 right around the corner, there have been creative and helpful diy videos on my youtube home page to help with everything I can imagine. And basically, one of those wonderful ideas prompted todays post.

I like the overall idea and the past two years, since bullet journaling has become unbelievably popular, I have toyed with the idea of creating one, but have never done it. This year may be the year.

The idea itself is relatively simple and complex simultaneously. Although most videos we watch have creators with a wide variety of crafty tools, the only thing you really need is an idea and sense of what you find pleasing. This is your journal and it is basically to help you keep track and organised in 2022.

You guys can absolutely blame youtube for this post. In my feed I have three creators I follow that create bullet journals for many aspects of life. I love the work they do, their creativity, and the inspiration I get from watching their peojects.

But today I want to talk about creator Mochibujo of Norway. I have enjoyed all of her videos and this one was no different and recommended to me by youtubes algorithm.

I love the idea of creating a journal, but I never end up making one. For the last half of 2021, my book log, no matter if it’s my TBR, or my read list, has been a basic list in a rulled tablet. It has standard info like book title, author name, date I started and finished said book, and my star rating. But at least they are all in the same book, that’s a start!

The video I watched today, (which was uploaded three weeks ago, I’m so late) has me thinking I finally want to have something similar. The final product came out beautifully and I have no problem putting in the effort for a journal.

One of the coolest parts I liked most from this video is the page she created with book covers that she has read. The way she explains it in the video is extremely simple to recreate. And I think it’s a great idea. I would enjoy it because there are some titles that came out with wonderful cover art. Even though these end up the size of thumbnails, I liked this idea best.

What I’m wondering is…

How can I ensure after I’ve made it that I will use it? (If you have any ideas, share it with me in the comments) I feel like it will be easy because I absolutely need to keep track of my reading list and relevant information.

But I know me…

I have calendars and notebooks that I tried to use to keep up with info before. I have books with no start date but end dates. I have a working list as we speak that has titles and authors, but not the books narrators and sometimes I have to go search for them. Usually it’s as simple as a mouse click and the pertinant information pops up. But the question is, will I use it after I’ve made it?

#Journaling

Chances are I won’t consistantly use it, and that is my concern right now. How many of you guys create reading journals every year? And do you have any issues with using them consistantly?

I know I won’t know until I try. I may surprise myself and by the end of 2022, I’ll have a complete list to look back over fondly and be a more organised version of myself.

  1. Love this post! I also use my bullet journal for tracking the books I read. I also talk about this here on my blog. It’s hard sometimes to keep up with it, but if you’re motivated it becomes easier. ☺️
