Dreaming of Snow

Summer is almost (hopefully) over by next month. Looking forward for cool weather and rainy days. It's been one hell of a summer this year. We had a hard time going out and staying cool. Walking outside is excruciating. Sometimes, we wish for those cozy winters that my family and friends are enjoying abroad. That would be nice to keep us in high spirit.

My Reading Tracker (Digital)

Of course, the manual tracker is not enough. I need apps that work the same and luckily, I found Book Tracker and To Read

It allows me to track my reading progress by adding books either manually or just by scanning a barcode. The set up is so simple that any non-techie person can actually use this with ease.

You can type the Book Tittle or Author 

and the app will automatically search it for you (need wi-fi connection)

What I really like about this app, is that, when the book is pulled out, it includes book cover which I found really nice. 
You can mark the book as read, set your progress, color-code it and you have the option to delete the book. I seriously love this app.

As you can see here, I have a long list of to-read and I need an app to track them down. This app is  simple and yet it gets the job done. It lets you catalog the books you want to read later. 

It works the same as the Book Tracker, You type the Book Tittle or Author then the app will automatically search it for you (need wi-fi connection)

What I love about this app, is that, when the book is pulled out, it includes book cover and description. Reading is more fun with a little help from this nifty app. 

My Reading Tracker (Manual)

You know by now that I'm into making my life easy by continuously trying things or ideas to make any task easy peasy. Recently, I had this idea of tracking the books I readcurrently reading and to read. It was a great idea and I'm sharing to you in two parts: Manual and Digital.

Planner printables are every where these days and the hardest part is picking which to download and print. It took me awhile but I finally found what I'm looking for. I like Elise goal tracker but darn, I'm too cheap I wanted it free so I look around and here's what I found. The way I like it. Simple and straight forward. 

First, I print, score and cut.

then I ransack my lunch box of scrap papers (of course, I can't stand this set up for too long) 

Version 1: I made a mini booklet then use a bulldog clip to keep them together. 

I had a box full of project life cards. I had a hard time choosing which one to use. 

Version 2: I stapled the printable then adhere it to the journaling card. So easy. Now, I can track down my reading pattern and keep me motivated to read more this year.
