9 Minimalist ‘Books I’ve Read’ Layout Ideas For Your Bullet Journal

Are you aiming to read more in 2019? Even if you aren’t, I am sure these Bullet Journal Books Spreads will provide enough inspiration that you will want to start!

Reading has proven to be very beneficial for us. It is known to provide mental stimulation, reduce stress, and improve your memory. Depending on what types of books you like to read, it can also provide a great opportunity for us to learn something new!

Reading doesn’t even have to mean stopping everything to sit down and read a book. While I believe that the simple act of reading for even fifteen minutes before bed can be very beneficial, I understand there is not always an opportunity to do that!

We now have different reading options available to us right at our fingertips! If you can’t get a physical book, you can read eBooks on your phone or your Kobo. If you prefer to listen, you can get audiobooks, and you can listen to them on your commute to and from work, or while you are folding your laundry!

The possibilities are endless! And your Bullet Journal can be a fantastic place to track what books you want to read or books that were recommended to you! You can track how often you are reading, or how many pages you read per day. Let’s take a look at some inspiration from the community!

Minimalist ‘Books I’ve Read’ Spread

For my book tracker, I wanted to create a really minimal spread, but I still wanted it to be cute too! I decided to add a rating scale to my spread using little hearts for decoration! I also wrote my headers in a pretty script with some faux calligraphy!

For supplies, I used my Leuchtturm 1917 A5 notebook, my 20 pack of Bullet Journal Stencils that I got from Amazon and a Sakura Pigma Micron Black Pen in the size 05. The stencils were used for the hearts on the rating system and 2019 in the page title!

I have set a goal to read one book every two weeks, so by the end of the year, I hope to have read 26 books! I will write down the title and author as I go, and then rate them with my hearts once I have read them!

If I have any books recommended to me that I am interested in reading, I will write it in as my next book to read! If I run out of space, I might even create a book wish list to go along with this spread!

In total, this spread only took me 15 minutes to draw out! Totally worth the time investment in my opinion!

Now, let’s take a look at some of the inspiration I found on Instagram! There were so many amazing spreads, but I narrowed it down to my personal favorites!
