We found the CUTEST Printable Reading Chart Log and I just want to shout it from the rooftops and make sure everyone knows about it – it’s so good!
Be sure to pin an image for later so you can refer back to this post:
I’m here to tell you where to get the cute printable, how to enlarge it into a poster for cheap (if you like that sort of thing), and how to “frame” it with the wood planks. Get excited! We are big readers at our house, but especially my daughter – she reads all. the. time. This was a perfect addition to her room!
Reading Chart Printable
First up, you’ll need this cute printable – it’s a free printable that is offered over at Everyday Reading. So so cute. The idea is that you fill in titles on the spines of the books on the printable for each book you read during the year. There are 100 spots. If you don’t read that much, you can color in and decorate the open book spines. If you read more than that, print two charts 😉
How to Print a Printable as a POSTER
This print is sized as a regular paper, but you can totally print it way larger. The secret to printing posters cheap is to print them as ENGINEER PRINTS. The paper is very thin, but for the things I’m printing, it’s totally fine! Everything is better giant 😉 . I printed this 2 feet wide and I think it’s about 3 feet tall.
I’ve even printed pictures that large, it’s my go-to! You can read all about how to print a giant picture cheap HERE.
How to Make a Wood Hanging Frame
If you’ve been following me on social media, you’ll know that I’m currently OBSESSED with hanging quotes and prints in these simple “frames”. I even put a whole post together with step-by-step instructions, so you can check that out here: Make a Wood Hanging Print Frame
Enjoy making one yourself! Happy reading! (PS, here’s where we stacked her crates, we’ve added more since then, ha!)

I love the image. Do you share it? I work for Jones County Public Library in Gray, GA and would love to share this craft with my Teen Readers. If possible can you email me how to find the image if you can’t share it with me.
