Reading Journal 2020 | Mid Year Flip-Through & Templates

Hi, everyone! I’m so excited to share my reading journal as it is half-way through 2020 with you today. I’ve enjoyed working on this journal so much! Creating the collages and ephemera is great for keeping me occupied while watching TV or listening to audiobooks. It really relaxes my mind kind of like the way colouring does. It’s a whole other hobby that reading introduced me to.


My journal is more of a junk journal than a bullet journal which is what most people seem to do for their reading journal. I went for a junk journal cause it’s more my style and all that drawing for the bullet journal annoyed me. Plus junk journaling suits my messy rustic nature.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the flip-through video below and please excuse my narration…. I’m so not used to speaking in video anymore.
