Ever since Oprah anointed reading our real national pastime, book clubs have been popping up all over the country, with readers everywhere sharing opinions, dog-earing important pages, and underlining unforgettable passages. But so far, those millions of readers haven't had a specific place to write down their important reactions -- positive or negative -- to the books they read. This lovely, fill-in reader's journal offers just that: a private place to record thoughts and feelings about books that spark curiosity, challenge emotions, and provoke spirited discussion.
The journal opens with a blank table of contents and space for 25 books. The entry for each title begins with space to record the specifics about each book, including plot summary and character descriptions. The journal then provides thought-provoking "writing prompts" as well as ample pages to record personal reactions, jot down quotes, or just give a general review. The final pages are specifically designed for notes, recollections, and bits of information from book group meetings, including members' names and contact information. Whether they're in a book club or not, anyone who loves to read will find keeping this journal a satisfying and rewarding way to celebrate the adventures books offer us, and to preserve those memories for all time.
