If you love tracking your reading or if keeping track of the books you read is a resolution for 2023, the Wadsworth Public Library Reading Log is for you. It’s a private Google Sheets–based log that provides you with a multitude of statistics, plus the integrated WPL Reading Challenge. If that sounds like fun, let’s get to it!

You can access the WPL 2023 Reading Log by clicking here. You won’t be able to edit this template. In order to get a copy that you can edit, you must be logged into your own Google account, then click on File -> Make a copy. A pop-up window will appear confirming where you want to save it. Once you add a copy to your own drive, you’ll be able to rename, edit, add books, and more.

Don’t be worried if the log looks intimidating. You can use as much or as little of it as you want. If you’re not proficient in Sheets, don’t sweat it—watch our video tutorial demonstrating how to use and customize the log below (it's also posted on the WPL YouTube Channel). The 2023 log uses the same format as the 2021 version, but with new challenges. 

We hope you find the 2023 WPL Reading Log useful. Please feel free to share it far and wide with your bookish friends. We’d love to see screenshots of your stats, so feel free to share them and tag us on social media. We hope that 2023 is your best and most literary year yet, and this log helps you read harder and more diversely! Thank you to Book Riot for the inspiration for this project.
