Today we’re talking about Bullet Journal page ideas for avid readers because, as you know by now, your BuJo can help you with pretty much everything.
Having a reading journal can be fun but also beneficial to you in many ways! We’ll talk about it more.
These page ideas are wonderful; you can use just one or two and add them to your existing Bullet Journal, or use them all and create a separate book journal. I hope you’re excited to get started!
Having a book journal or just reading pages in your Bullet Journal can be super beneficial. But It’s also something you can use to add more fun to your journal.
These pages might be the extra inspiration you need to use your journal more and be more creative.
But before we dive in, in case you’re not convinced yet, here are some reasons you definitely need to have a book journal!
Benefits Of Having A Reading Journal
It might seem like busy work rather than something actually useful. But you’d be wrong thinking that.
There are many benefits you can get from tracking your reading. here are just a few:
Stay on track with your reading goals. It’s easy to get busy with life and skip reading, but if you have a way to track it, it will help you stay accountable and read as much as you intended to.
Remember the books. I hope I’m not the only one, but often time after reading the book, I can’t remember anything about it. I need to google first and get a quick summary before I can tell for sure that I read it. A reading journal is kind of like that but on paper, but with an added possibility to add your own thought and emotions about the book on the page.
Learn from the books. Every book I read teaches me something or at least gives me some interesting things to consider. But if you don’t write it, it will likely be gone soon; it’s crazy how fast our brain moves on and forgets these things. A book journal can help you preserve that knowledge and ideas.
Always know what to read next. How many books have you get recommended? And how many of them do you actually remember to read once you’re done with the current one? If you don’t keep a list, my guess is zero is the answer to both these questions. But with a reading journal, you’ll have a perfect place to keep all those books organized and recorded.
Are you convinced yet to start a reading journal? I hope you are because it’s time to share reading journal page ideas.

Supplies For Reading Journal
You can definitely use any supplies you have available. It all depends on what style you want to follow.
But in case you want some recommendations, here are some of my favorites:
Calliograph pens. They come in beautiful colors and have two brush tips, so you can use them for coloring and for creating different sizes of headers. (you can also get 10% off with my code MASHA10)
Fineliners. These are the blood of every Bullet Journal page, and I recommend getting these ones.
Kraft paper. I always find that it looks amazing on reading pages. You can use any you want, but I prefer using a kraft paper notepad that was it still has good paper and a dot grid. (you can also get 10% off with my code MASHA10)
Book stencil. An easier and definitely faster way to add book doodles to your Bullet Journal.
Letter stamps. I feel like it fits so well with all the book pages. And it will allow you to have many fun and unique headers.
I hope you check these out, and these supplies will inspire you to create your own unique reading journal pages.
