The New and Improved Rock Your Reading Tracking Spreadsheet

Reading Tracking Spreadsheet

I improved my reading QUALITY 42% this year by using the Rock Your Reading Tracking Spreadsheet

Two years ago, I was disappointed in the big books that publishers hyped and those listed on various Best Books lists by non-blogger media sources.

So, last year, I built the Rock Your Reading Tracking Spreadsheet to help me:

  • Track my best and worst recommendation sources.
  • Enable me to monitor my reading stats in real time…because it automatically compiles my stats throughout the year.

Since I started using the Rock Your Reading Tracking Spreadsheet, my reading quality has improved 42%! That blows past my goal of liking over 50% of the books I attempt (so far this year, I’ve liked 61% of the books I’ve attempted).

The Rock Your Reading Tracking Spreadsheet is ideal for book bloggers and bookworms that read a high volume of books each year.

How the Rock Your Reading Tracking Spreadsheet Will Help You

For $14.99, you’ll be able to:

  • Track key elements bookworms like to keep tabs on (your reading goals, books and pages read, ratings, genre, format, diversity, etc). They’re built right into the spreadsheet…with Summary Charts that automatically populate as you enter the books you’ve read!

  • Keep your To Be Read (TBR) list and reading tracker in one place.
  • Track the recommendation sources for books you do not finish (DNF’s)…because knowing who gives you bad recommendations is just as important as knowing who gives you great ones!
  • Customize the spreadsheet for your needs. Delete items you don’t care about tracking. Add columns for anything you’d like to track that I haven’t included. Email me if you’d like me to customize dropdown menus, summary charts, etc for your specific needs.

And, possibly the best part…no more tallying up your numbers and manually creating Excel pie charts at the end of the year! It’s all done for you on the Summary Charts tab!

Key Improvements to the 2019 tracking spreadsheet

  • Automatically tracks “reading quality” statistic (which has become my primary reading statistic…replacing quantity)
  • Automatically calculates progress against your annual reading goal
  • Automatically calculates your average star rating for the year
  • Tracks additional items: re-reads, series, reading challenges, POV (point of view), new-to-you authors, audiobook narrator, and audiobook hours listened.

Testimonials from Current Customers

Catherine at Gilmore Guide to Books:

Whether you want to keep it simple and just count how many books you’ve read or you want to go all in and geek out on numbers and charts, the Rock Your Reading Tracker is the only tool you need. Because of it, I not only have a manageable TBR list, I also know the authors, bloggers, and publishers who work best for me and those who don’t- which gives me more time to read. It is my favorite rabbit hole to fall into when thinking about books!

Susie at Novel Visits:

Sarah’s Rock your Reading Tracker has made organizing the books I’ve read AND those I still want to read a breeze. Data isn’t my thing, but her tracker does all the work for me. I love turning to the summary charts and getting that quick visual of my reading trends and stats. I guarantee, you’re going to love it, too. Now, if Sarah would only create a tracker for my job!

Gabby at 500 Books Blog:

I like having all the statistics right there! There are some (like debuts) I never thought to track on my own and enjoy having access to. Tracking things like format read in and books read per month has also been super interesting to see visually.

Carla at Happiest When Reading:

I really LOVE this and found it very insightful in regards to my reading habits. I became much more aware of the reading choices I was making and it made for a more enjoyable selection of books!

    Does this have to be used in a computer? I am looking for something I could use in a kindle fire.

    • Sarah Dickinson

      Hi Kim – I’m pretty sure it does. I don’t have a Kindle Fire myself, but I imagine this would not work on that unless the Kindle Fire somehow has either Microsoft Excel or Apple Numbers apps.

  2. Monika @ Lovely Bookshelf

    I need a spreadsheet that tracks gender diversely as well. Is it possible/difficult to add fields? (I only see two genders in the image above, and I read a lot by nonbinary authors.) What a great resource this is, though!

    • Sarah Dickinson

      Hi Monika! There is an “Other” category for Gender Diversity on the spreadsheet….it got cut off in the screenshot. However, if you’d like to use it, I’m happy to customize that category for you with all the choices you’d like to see there (and whatever other customizations you’d like to see…I did this for people last year)! Let me know…
