Musing Mondays #2

Musing Mondays is a meme hosted by Should be Reading.

Do you have a reading goal for the year, such as __ books? Why or why not?

Yes, I have a goal of 80 books for the year which you can find here. Last year, my goal was 60 books and I read 67. This year I am sure I'll go past 80 books as I already have 42 read and it's just the beginning of June. I love challenging myself and I also love keeping track of things. 

Last year, I logged the books I read in a book journal which I got for Christmas. It was bought at K Two products. This year, I got a Moleskine book journal. The Moleskine book journal is by far the best. It has sticker labels and a little organiser at the back and in the front it has an alphabetical organizer for logging your books. It asks you the title, a star rating, your opinion, was it a first edition, what year was it published, a notes section, quotes, who published it, the author, what was the nationality of the author and more! I'll probably do talk more on the book journaling in another post.

I keep track of my books on Goodreads, also. I have a section on one of the groups to keep track of my challenges I'm doing such as A-Z Title challenge which is here. I keep track of my books on listography too. I'm addicted to book logging!!!

Do you log your books? Do you have a book journal? Are you doing any reading challenges/goals this year? Let me know!


  1. Nice challenge, hope you complete it :)

  2. I keep track on goodreads as well, I think many people do.

  3. I almost bought the moleskin book journal, but I got a different one gifted to me and felt bad for not using it...
    Good luck on your goal.

    1. You should use it, I love book journals. Thanks :)

  4. Good luck on your goal! I started keeping track of my reading by adding pages to my blog. That's about all the goal I can handle.

  5. I love being really organised and doing goals and challenges. Good luck on your goal.
