A book tracker that prioritizes the user experience readers deserve.

Our mission is to help people have deeper, more satisfying experiences reading books — a book tracker, but for joy. It's all the stuff readers want and nothing they don't. With best-in-class design and not an ad in sight.

The Italic Type reading tracker is currently available for desktop and mobile through your preferred web browser. The iOS App is coming soon!


An easier way to find and add books

Search for books to read or get inspiration from what our staff and community are reading. Stay motivated by tracking your progress.

A personal reading journal

Every book has a Book Board to record notes, ideas, things you look up, even pictures of pages to highlight quotes.

A place to share reading time with friends

Send your friends and family personal recommendations. Italic Type will create a place for you to chat within your Book Board.

A better book club for readers everywhere

Invite friends to read the same book at the same time for a book club experience that's not limited by geography or schedule, or keep track of what your friends are reading and discuss in real time.

Italic Type will always be free to join, but it's never been free to make. As we grow, we'll be experimenting with new ways to earn revenue — without selling your data or attention. If you're interested in supporting us during this early phase, consider becoming a member! You'll get early access to new features, a welcome box and, hopefully, that same feeling you get when you pick up a book at your favorite bookstore. Italic Type is all about readers supporting readers. If that's something you want to get in on, we'd love to have you.
