Starting today, the Friends are selling two book journals: Books to Check Out: A Journal (for adults) and Books to Check Out for Kids. The adult journal has space to write titles of books you want to read, a section to list favorite books, and a space to note down who you loan a book to, or who you borrowed a certain book from. There is also a handy pocket section in the back for notes. I have one and use it all the time.
The Journal for kids has a “Books I read” section, where you can note the title, author, any thoughts, and space for a rating. There’s a fun section where you can write imaginary letters to the author, or book reviews, including suggestions of words to use. The third section is titles “Books I Really Really Really Want to Read, and the last section is a place to write down what you’ve read and how much time you spent reading it. (VERY handy for the summer program!)
Both journals are for sale at the library for $10 each. (They sell for $10.95 on Amazon.)
