3 Things To Help You Hit Your 2022 Reading Goals

New year, new reading goals! Whether you want to finish the Read Harder challenge to read outside your comfort zone, reread your favorites, read more of a certain genre, hit a book number, or some combination, we have a few helpful tools for you!

Book Marks

Book Marks is our customizable dot-grid reading tracker inspired by Bullet Journaling. There’s a nice mix of fill-in prompts, charts, and lists of recommended reading. It’s the perfect journal for keeping track of all your reads for the year.

TBR: Tailored Book Recommendations

When you sign up for TBR, we ask all about what kind of books you’re looking for (and what you don’t like), and comb through your Goodreads account to find the perfect fits. Tell us your reading goals and let us help you reach them!

The Read Harder Journal

Our Read Harder Journal is perfect for readers who want more structure than comes in Book Marks: it includes entry pages to record your reading stats, reviews, and more. The journal also comes with 12 reading challenges, inspired by our annual Read Harder challenge.

Holiday Gift Guide Affiliate Sprint Send

Need some last-minute ideas for bookish gifts? We’ve got you covered, with these favorite items from our 2020 Holiday Gift Guide!

I Will Judge You by Your Bookshelf by Grant Snider

Book lovers are a wonderful if not slightly judgmental bunch—at least when it comes to other people’s bookshelves. This is a delightful and humorous collection of comics about the joys of being a book lover, from collecting large amounts of books to (sometimes) getting around to reading them. ($16.99)

Let It Snow Bookmark

If you’re looking for a small gift for a gift exchange or just something really cute to slip into a book for someone, this adorable bookmark is just the thing! It depicts a snowy, cozy winter scene and is printed on heavy linen cardstock. It reads, “Let it snow, I’ll be inside reading.” You can buy individual bookmarks, or sets so that you can gift one to all your friends or book club members. ($4.75)

Classic Kindle Cover

If you know someone who has an ereader or is getting one this holiday season, these classic Kindle covers make a fantastic gift. They transform your reading tech into a classic leather-bound look-alike book. You can pick from classic titles or choose something a little more anonymous, and you can even personalize the inside! ($37)

Female Poet Enamel Pin Set

For the person on your list who loves poetry, gift this white and gold enamel pin set featuring lines of poetry from some famous female poets, from Maya Angelou, Sappho, Qiu Jin, Anne Brontë, and Sylvia Plath. These pins make striking accessories for any feminist poetry lover! ($42)

Planter Bookend

For someone on your list with space concerns, this multipurpose bookend/planter is so clever and stylish! It’s made out of ceramic and comes in a variety of colors, and it’s sturdy enough to hold up your books while also containing a plant—or utensils, if you want to use it in the kitchen with cookbooks! Really, it’s so versatile that you might want one for yourself, too. ($46)
