How do you keep track of books?
You can always write a journal and keep track of books you’re reading that way, or use a digital, printable book tracking spreadsheet. However, keep in mind these methods might still not work for real bookworms. If this is you, you might need an up-level system and a book list template to track all the books on your plate.
How do you create a book database?
Choose a tool that allows you to create a book database in a few clicks so you don’t have to start from scratch and lose the time you can spend reading your favorite literature, bring all your books to one place, and organize them any way you want.
Is there an app to keep track of books read?
Absolutely! There is a bunch of great book reading tracker apps out there, such as Goodreads or Bookshelf. Infinity, too, can be used as a book tracking app, as it comes with a handy books-to-read template you can easily organize your reading in a fun and engaging way.
