Happy Friday, friends! This weekend (yes, Fridays are considered weekend where I am from), I have another fun prompt from Let’s Talk Bookish, a weekly meme created by Rukky from Eternity Books and now hosted by Aria from Book Nook Bits.
This week’s prompt is a fun one. It’s about tracking your reading progress–if you even do it, how you do it, and why you do it.
When it comes to tracking my reading progress, I almost always use GoodReads. Admittedly, the website GoodReads itself is quite problematic, and its UX/UI is too outdated. Not to mention, it often takes hours to load. But since I have been using GoodReads from 5th Grade (which is when I finally got access to the internet from my parents), it’s has become habit to use GR to track my reading my progress.
Recently I was introduced to Readerly by one of my favorite book bloggers, Kal from Reader Voracious. You can check out here detailed review post about Readerly here. I joined Readerly when it was still in its beta phase and absolutely loved it! The UI is so modern, the concept of “gists” is unique and overall, I have had an amazing experience with it.
I have been bullet journaling since I was 2017, but even before that, I used to keep a list of books I’d been reading in my personal diaries. Every month, I always have one reading spread in my bullet journal to keep track of my reading progress.
So that’s pretty much how I track my reading. It’s not exactly sophisticated, though it may seem a little bit all over the place. One thing I do want to clarify here is that even though I usually track the books I have read after I am done reading them. This is because I am a very moody reader, and I never really end up going along with the TBR list I set for myself every month. 😂
Now it’s your turn? Do you like to track your reading progress? Share your thoughts in the comments below, and if you are participating in this meme, feel free to add links to your posts too! <3
