Sharing is caring!

I need a Reading Journal because I read a lot… I mean a lot! I always have at least one book I’m reading and another one that I’m listening to on audio. At times, it can be confusing keeping track of the storylines.

Keeping track of all the books you read is a challenge. We’re all busy with a million things running through our minds. Trying to recall a quote, a character’s name, or a favorite scene can pose a problem.

I’ve had a few instances where I’ve thought of something I wanted to add to the discussion after the fact. I needed a cheat sheet to review before going to the Book Club meeting. I don’t just read one book a month, and some of the details get lost.

Adding pretty dividers is an easy way to categorize your books.

I needed something to help me gather my thoughts about a particular book. It could be for a Book Club meeting or to make a book recommendation to a friend. Just something I could refer to from time to time. So, I decided to make a Thought-Catcher. A reading journal to organize my books, and I want to share it with you.

Take ownership of your Thought-Catcher by personalizing the cover page.

Visiting different book review sites and blogs to see what everyone is reading is one of my favorite things to do. I love Book Club Girl and Modern Mrs. Darcy to name a few.   It’s an easy way to get reading recommendations. It’s also an excellent way to connect with the book community.


Fiction, Non-Fiction, Historical Fiction, Mystery, and Book Club Ideas are the subgroups I decided to use.

Everyone’s in search of their next read, so there’s always someone to talk to about books. I think we’re all on the same page (no pun intended) when it comes to the love of talking about a great book you just read. You need to share the love!

I found this inexpensive notebook at Marshall’s Home Goods. It reflects my love for books.

There is great satisfaction in someone telling you they loved the book you recommended. You become instant friends and usually start trading book titles. I do keep a running list on my phone for just that occasion. There’s something special about connecting with someone over a book. That’s one of the reasons we love Book Clubs; they unite people in a favorable way. A worthwhile way. We’re expanding our minds and nurturing our friendships over food and drink. The conversation is interesting and most of the time we’re pushed out of our reading comfort zone.

Finally, relaxing with my Thought-Catcher Reading Journal. I guess I’ll start with my most current book!

So, I decided to make a Thought-Catcher. A reading journal to organize my books and I want to share it with you.  So relax, grab a cup of tea, a little snack, and enjoy reflecting on your latest read.

Happy reading!


P.S.  Here’s a link to my favorite tea, Tea Forte.  It’s a little pricey, but so worth the splurge!

    I LOVE the Thought Catcher! I belong to two book discussion groups and lead another. I am giving copies to all. They are very appreciative.
    Thank you.
