Pick Better Books with the Rock Your Reading Tracking Spreadsheet

Rock Your Reading Tracking Spreadsheet


Do you spend way too much time figuring out your reading stats at the end of the year? Have you had trouble finding books that perfectly fit your reading taste?

Finally, there’s a way to track your reading that will help you pick better books for your reading taste and will automatically compile your stats at the end of the year…the Rock Your Reading Tracking Spreadsheet!

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

The Story

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

So, I started thinking about a new system for picking books. Many of my favorite books of 2017 were recommended to me by trusted sources and weren’t on my radar from publishers or those big media sources. I realized the source of the recommendation is just as important, if not more, than the book itself.

Over the last few months, I used this tracker to monitor my recommendation sources and numerically figure out who gives me the best (and worst) ones. I’ve used these sources to pick my books for Winter 2018.

How the Rock Your Reading Tracker Will Help You

For $11.99, you’ll be able to:

  • Track the key elements bookworms like to keep tabs on (books and pages read, 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!

Rock Your Reading Tracking Spreadsheet Recommendation Sources

  • 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.

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!

I’m available at sarahsbookshelves@gmail.com to answer any questions before and after your purchase and provide support using the tracker. And, if I make substantial updates and / or improvements in the future, anyone who purchased the original version will be able to purchase the new version at a discount.
