A new year is almost upon us, and you know what that means–time for a new reading log! If you love tracking your reading or if keeping track of the books you read is a resolution for 2020, this new 2020 reading log is for you. It’s the biggest reading log we’ve ever put out–a private, Google Sheets-based reading log that gives you way more tracking and computing power than Goodreads, plus it’s integrated with our Read Harder 2020 challenge!
You can access the 2020 Reading Log here. That link will take you to a template in Google Sheets, which you won’t be able to edit. Click on File>Make a copy, then rename it and save it in your own drive. Then, you’ll be able to open the spreadsheet in your own drive and start inputting data!
If the reading log looks a bit intimidating, don’t worry. We’ve added a ton of new features this year, including columns to track audiobook narrators, the retail source of your books, how much you spent on books, a book’s nation of origin, and more. But you can also customize the log to suit your particular needs–hide columns that aren’t useful to you, add fields and tracking options, and customize stats and charts!
There’s no need to be an expert in Sheets to utilize the log, either–I’ve recorded a video walk through of the reading log, showing you how it works, tips and tricks for making it easy to fill out, what the stats and charts look like, and how to customize and edit the functions to tailor it to your reading life.
I hope that the 2020 Reading Log will be useful for you, and that you’ll share it with your bookish friends. I’d love to see screenshots of your stats, so feel free to share on social media. Hopefully by using the 2020 Reading Log, you can kick off this new decade by making 2020 your most bookish year yet!
