Reading Log for 2016

I've seen some great spreadsheets in the past few days that people have put together for tracking their reading.  I decided that I wanted one tailored to me (of course), and that I want the option of filling out a form that will populate to a spreadsheet.  I'm not sure which will be more efficient.  I like checkboxes, but I also like seeing it all at once.  The great thing about Google Forms is that you can create a form, then just use the spreadsheet, if that turns out to be better.

Here's a copy of what my spreadsheet will look like:

I've made a template version you are welcome to take and tweak.  Copy it first.  I have saved my personal version separately, so if you make a mistake or if the template is messed up, you'll need to let me know--I won't notice from my end.  Just click here to open it, then make a copy for yourself.

I can't wait to read something and enter it on my list!


  1. Ooh that is a really good idea! I have an excel spreadsheet with tons of sections to fill out and it's colour-coded and I update it ALL THE TIME. hehe. It is my baby. I kind of like the idea of ticking boxes and things though, so woot! Go you for making this one up to suit you!
    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!

    1. Now I'm quietly fangirling to myself because the Book Blogging Ruler of Us All commented on my blog. :)

  2. This is awesome! I love my spreadsheet and enter directly into it. I have it color coded as well and it even tracks which challenges a book is part of. It is great that you made one to your needs.
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Oooh, color coded. I don't know if my spreadsheet skills are quite there yet, but now I'm curious. It's hilarious to me that my enthusiasm for reading is what is driving me to get better at technology.
