Free Bookish Planner Printables

Amanda Kennedy


Back when I first began book blogging, I designed this set of planner printables to sell in my Etsy shop. Since 2020 has been a tough year for us all, I've decided to release these for free for anyone who would like to use them.

The Book Lover's Compendium is a complete set of printable inserts for those who love literature, or simply want to keep track of their reading habits. These planner printables were designed for the Personal Size Filofax, though may be suitable for other brands of a similar size. 

I designed this set with the theme of antiquarian bookstores in mind, using fonts and decorative elements you might find in a beautiful old book. 

This set includes everything you might want or need to take notes of your reading habits, including:

  • Four personalisable dividers, with the appearance of decorative antique book covers
  • Two-sided Book Review sheets, including space for your notes, star ratings and dates.
  • Book store sheets, for contact, location, website addresses and notes
  • E-books, to detail your downloads
  • Library logs, to keep track of what you borrow
  • Blank notepaper, for your thoughts and scribbles, designed to accompany the design theme of other inserts
  • Quotes, for jotting down those all-important details you want to remember later
  • Reading logs
  • Recommended reads, for those books you might want to read later

Once downloaded, you can print as many of the pages you need, as many times as you like!

I've also included a bonus set of book lists you might want to keep to hand, for suggested reading or to complete a favoured book collection:

  • - Amazon's "100 Books to Read in a Lifetime"
  • - Amazon's "100 Books for Children"
  • - A complete list of Penguin's Clothbound Classics series
  • - A list of all Barnes and Noble leather bound "Collectible Editions"

I designed this set in answer to my endless searching for suitable inserts for my own Filofax. Being a book lover, I do prefer to keep all my literary notes all in one place. As a planner addict, I also wanted them to be beautiful. I hope you will find them as useful in your forays into the world of literature as I do!

These inserts are designed to be printed on A4 sized paper/card (210 x 297mm / 8.27 x 11.69 inches). You will need Adobe Reader (or other PDF reader) to open the files. Additionally, to customise the text on the personalisable dividers, you will need to download and install the FREE font, Linux Libertine. Full details and instructions are included in the documentation for this set. 

The PDF files are contained two Zip folders which you can "unzip" to your computer. Complete instructions for printing these inserts are included in the download.

Please note that these files have not been updated in some time. I've checked to make sure everything is included and works as it should, however the links in the instruction file refer to my old Tumblr blog and not to this updated site. Should you encounter any issues, feel free to drop me a line or leave a comment below.

Feel free to share these bookish planner printables with anyone who may enjoy them!

I'd appreciate a link back to All My Pretty Books if you share on your own website, and ask that you do not sell these printables as that would not be in the spirit of sharing!
