3.0 out of 5 stars A bit late with my review!!! 23 July 2009
By G. J. Oxley TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Diary|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've been using this book as a diary all year and as such it's a nicely presented, sexy-looking item. It's made from wonderful thick, bright white, quality paper. Such paper (it's almost thick enough to be card) doesn't come cheap, and this is reflected in the high price. And without wishing to sound all pervy, it smells GREAT!

What more can I say? It's expensive for what it is, but it's proven to be durable, and every time I get it out (ooh-er, missus!) someone will comment upon its attractive design.

I'm a rampant bibliophile, and would love this to have been packed with esoteric book and author-related information, yet the content is fairly sparse and surprisingly disappointing.

Still, it's lovely to look at and I'll probably buy the same thing for next year - providing I can pick it up for half price.

4.0 out of 5 stars A diary that celebrates books and reading 22 Nov 2008
By Wynne Kelly TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Diary|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
What a great idea! This diary is beautifully presented and is packed full of ideas about books and reading. Each month has a selection of books (loosely) relevant and scattered throughout are lists of books such as Fiction for Art Lovers and Fiction for Gardeners. And there is also space for your own notes and thoughts.
Almost too nice to write in!
Not cheap - but would make a great present for a book lover.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful and Informative 14 Aug 2009
By Misha The Penguin VINE VOICE
Format:Diary|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Having used this for a while now I can safely say that as a diary it performs its functions exceptionally well. There are dates coupled with the days of the week which means that navigating around the book is exceptionally easy. But seriously, this is an interesting concept and if you are really interested in books and looking for information on alternative reads, this will make a useful addition to your bookshelves. And it's useful to take to your reading group too! Look out for next years!

4.0 out of 5 stars LIttle big book 8 April 2009
By B. Roche VINE VOICE
Format:Diary|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
A neat little diary that's not so little, this book eschews the normal dull and dusty literary selections and instead contains a good smattering of modern authors and fiction. The layout is generally very good and there is amble space for notes, minor diary entries (no novels though) and your own lists too. The only real problem is the size. If you are looking for a pocket-sized diary, I'd look elsewhere. As a coffee table addition that happens to be a diary too, this product is a good buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Book Diary 16 Jan 2009
Format:Diary|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I always keep a diary and this one is slightly different to the average diary having information about different books to read each month. It has space to note what books you've read during the month and your thoughts on them. It includes different genres of book which I might not have considered reading.
I wasn't impressed by the photographs in the diary, they would hardly inspire me to read, and it doesn't include a whole month calendar at the start of each month, or anywhere else.
On a positive note it has plenty of room to write both appointments and "novel" information. On the whole a good book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful 28 Dec 2008
By Wendy Jones TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Diary|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is essentially a diary but one with a twist. It is based around a literary theme and gives recommendations for books, contains literary quotes and has space for you to record your reading and what you thought of the books. As a confirmed bibliophile I think this book is brilliant, however, I believe it is limited by the fact that at the end of the year you would need to start again. I intend to keep a record of my reading for a year and record my thoguhts on the books and the authors. This would make a great gift for someone who loves books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fab gift for book lovers 19 Dec 2008
By Nathan VINE VOICE
Format:Diary|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This would make a lovely gift for an avid reader. It has sections for books suitable to the parts of the year, for example Animals for March because it is the month of Crufts.

It also has an author of the month with an extract from one of their books - and this is my quibble with this book. I would rather have seen a description of what their books are like rather than a random paragraph. It makes it hard to guess what the books are like and which book to start with.

4.0 out of 5 stars useful if you are into fiction 19 Dec 2008
By Mb Awan VINE VOICE
Format:Diary|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Overall this is a great product and would make a very useful present for someone who loves thier fiction. As I much prefer non-fiction, it isn't the most useful thing in the world for me, but there is definately a market for it.
