This summer, I started taking a different approach to the books I've been reading.
Instead of just reading it and putting it aside to forget about, I've been recording everything I read in a book journal.
I got this one at HomeSense, and I think the quote is perfect for a journal where I want to record my thoughts on books. Books are meant to let your imagination roam, and can keep you company when you are alone or lonely. I freaking love this quote.
Inside, I record the day I finished the book, the title, the author(s), a little summary of the book and my thoughts after finishing it, and who recommended it to me, or where I got it.
I've noticed that this makes me think a little bit more critically about the books that I'm reading. I remember them better, and find myself talking about them to others more. In the future, if I forget that I've read something, I can always go back and check so I don't accidentally read something I didn't like twice.
I think this is a great idea, and I highly recommend it for all you readers out there!
