Book Collection Template – A simple database for all your Books

Are you a book lover? This is for you! Did you switch to kindle / e-books? This is for you too!! Do you enjoy strolling around in bookstores and libraries? Me too! And that’s because I just love to look at all those spines with titles on them and spot those I read and are in my wish list.

I’m trying to downsizing my book collection as I’ve moved a lot in the last years (and we all know how heavy books are!!). I ended up reading a lot of e-books on my kindle, borrow copies from the library and friends or just buying paperbacks and reselling them once finished. I then need a place to write down everything I read because come on… isn’t extremely satisfying to go through these lists?!?
Moreover I needed something to keep track of my reading habit as I always want to read more in my New Year resolutions.

Here it is the final product : YOUR PERSONAL BOOK COLLECTION TEMPLATE!
In it you will find:
-a DASHBOARD with all your main achievements, reading speed, books budget and a dynamic world map that highlights the countries of the books you read
-a READING LIST to keep track of your titles, when you start and finish them and your opinion
-a tracker for the BOOKS YOU LEND to people
-a place to catalogue the BOOKS YOU WISH TO GIFT
-a record of your favourite QUOTES
-a WISHLIST with also the possibility to EXPORT YOUR AMAZON WISHLIST to have everything in one place
-a fun READING CHALLENGE of 20 ENTRIES with SUGGESTIONS of books to read

How does it work? You will download a PDF file containing the link to the Google Sheet template and the instructions on how to start using it. It’s extremely simple and you only need a basic knowledge of excel, but in case you have a question or any problem I’m always ready to help!

Why I use Google Spreadsheets instead of Excel? Because it’s FREE, you can SHARE your work with other people, it is ACCESSIBLE in multiple devices, it SAVES any changes automatically, it’s USER FRIENDLY, you can EXPORT your work in multiple formats, you don’t have to worry to LOSE DATA if your computer crashes…However if you don’t like using it you can always export the template to EXCEL 🙂

ATT!! You need to have a gmail account in order to access the template.
