Introducing My 2020 Reading Tracker

2021 READING TRACKER NOW AVAILABLE HERE!!

 

Most readers have a method for tracking the books they read throughout the year and it varies wildly from person to person. Some use hand written journals or note cards. Some turn to apps on their phone or Excel spreadsheets. Many of us use Goodreads (and then complain often about it’s issues)! For the past five years, I’ve exclusively used Goodreads to record what I’m reading. However, as an accountant and book blogger, I know Excel provides much more flexibility, customization, and analytical capabilities. So, I created my own 2020 Reading Tracker!

The 2020 Reading Tracker

My reading tracker is available for $5 and is designed for both casual readers and book bloggers/bookstagrammers:

  • Casual readers can take advantage of the detailed reading tracker to input books you read. It’s similar to Goodreads, but much more user friendly and easy to filter and sort.
  • Book bloggers and bookstagrammers will love the ARC Tracker to help manage advanced copies and due dates for posts and reviews.
  • Everyone can see their reading stats updated real time throughout the year! There’s even a graphic that tracks your progress toward your yearly reading goal.
  • One of my personal favorite features is the ability to rate books with half stars! No more wavering between a 3 star or 4 star read! Anyone using Goodreads knows this will save HOURS of internal debating 🙂

 

Just a few of the columns used to record the books you read throughout the year.

 

2020 Reading Tracker Analysis

For only $5, my reading tracker also includes a variety of tables, charts, and graphs that show you an in-depth look at your reading habits, including:

  • Progress toward your yearly book goal
  • Summary of basic stats including total pages read, average star rating, etc
  • Pie charts showing the % of male vs female authors and book format
  • Number of books read by month and genre
  • Average star rating by genre and publisher
  • And more!

 

A few of the analytics that are automatically updated!

    I am an 8th grade teacher. Do you think it is possible to use your tracker for a class. I was thinking it could be something I could project to show our progress and diversity in choices, and start conversations about independent reading books.

      Hi Lori! I love that idea! I think it could definitely work for that purpose. It updates the charts as new books are added so you’d be able to see your stats change throughout the year. I can also customize the tracker so if there are additional columns or types of analysis you want to see I can add them for you!
