I’ve always loved reading.
My mom has a video of me when I was about 6 years old on VHS (remember those?) reading Bambi.
A couple of years ago, I discovered Airtable. I immediately thought of a hundred different ways to organize my life. Airtable works like a spreadsheet but gives you the power of a database to organize anything.
My #1 I wanted to organize?
With Airtable, I knew I could customize exactly what I wanted to track. So I made this awesome Airtable database!
I shared it on Airtable Universe and it’s now been copied over 1,245 times!
It’s currently the #37 most popular template in the Airtable Universe!!
Are you an avid reader too?
This is the book database for you!
This is a Gallery view. It’s a nice visual of all the books.
Most of the time, I use the Table view.
The database includes fields for a:
Book Cover Image
Month and Year Read
Your Rating by Star
Your Personal Review
Are you reading several books in a Series? There’s a field to label the name of the series for each book and organize your series.
Some other fields are:
Number of Pages in the book
Number of times you’ve read the book
Here’s a look at the single record for each book.
The Tables included are:
What’s great about tracking all your books in this database is the ability to create specific views to see only what you want to see.
Airtable Views are Grid, Gallery, Kanban, Calendar, and Form. Each one displays your information differently. With each View, you can Filter and Sort according to your interests.
Grid Views in this database include:
Books Read This Year
Status: Currently Reading
Books by Genre
Gallery Views include:
Book Gallery Read
Form View is:
Add New Book
To get a copy of this database template to use for your own books, first, you need to create an Airtable account.
Then, go to the Book Tracker Database in the Airtable Universe. Click Copy Base at the top.
The base will then be copied into your own Airtable dashboard!
