While you can always use Goodreads to keep track of your reading, sometimes it’s nice to keep track of your reading with paper and pen. Elise at the Tea and Ink Society has created a beautifully-crafted, printable reading journal called “The Book Lover’s Companion” to keep track of your reading.
This is a great gift for friends and family and is especially nice for kids to keep track of their reading without the use of technology. The printable comes with printing and binding instructions so you can provide a physical copy as a stocking stuffer this holiday season.

Ideas for Printing the Reading Journal
While you can certainly print out only the pages you’ll use, this reading journal is so much better if you get it bound. You can bind it yourself or go to your local Kinkos.
