Introducing the Cultivated Reading Journal!

by: Emily Thomas

Can you guess what the number one answer is when we poll Cultivators on their favorite hobbies? Without fail, it's reading.

And that makes sense, because books help us cultivate what matters most. They help us learn. They help us grow. They expose us to new ideas, people, and places. They bring us joy and help us connect to others. They teach us about the past, equip us for our lives today, and inspire us to dream about the future.

Friends, meet the Cultivated Reading Journal! Designed to be your companion in the reading life, this journal will help you track, remember, and learn from the books you read. You've consistently requested a simple place to store favorite takeaways and highlights from your reading, and we're so happy to deliver! 

Here are a few features you've love in the Cultivated Reading Journal:

1. Readerly reflection

It wouldn't be a Cultivate tool without a little Prep Work! Your journal kicks off with two pages of simple questions that will help you make the most of your life as a reader. You'll also find four journaling prompts throughout!

2. Just-right reading log pages

Track your reading progress with grace with 100 undated pages. Fill in the book details that matter to you: how you read, who recommended the book, favorite notes and quotes, and more!

3. Fun bonuses throughout!

We've packed it full of the good stuff! Enjoy reading challenges, a favorite quotes section, space for up to 100 books on your TBR list, a "lending library" log, and so much more!
