Reading Journal: For Book Lovers
I adore book journals. I started collecting them about three years ago and I’ve never stopped. I have a ton of them, and this is my favorite.
Below, are some of the sections and activities that I particularly enjoy. Click on the photos for a better look.
This section is for writing your favorite passages from the book, plus listing topics that you’d like to learn more about.
Here is an activity page. I listed my favorite authors, current favorite books, favorite young adult books, etc.
This is one of my favorite parts. I enjoyed identifying what aspects of the book drew me to it and then finding more books of a similar type.
Another fun activity page to fill in. Actually, a lot harder than it looks, because I had to remember all the books I’ve read recently.
The book includes lists of award winning novels. It has space to check them off as you complete them. I was motivated by this to read books out of my usual genre, and wound up discovering some great new (for me) titles like Invisible Man and The Great Gatsby.
There it is, all the things I love about this book.
