I love reading and read several books a month so as I soon as I saw this journal was coming out I got one on pre-order. It's great if you are a bit geeky like me and like to keep track of the books that you've read and what you thought of them.
The first section of the journal is "planning" (with columns for event, date, notes) designed for you to keep track of things like book club meets, author signings etc.
The next section is 156 pages of a-z tabbed pages for recording information about the books that you read. On each page there are slots to write the title, author, nationality, date read, first edition, year, original language, awards, quotes, notes, opinion and star rating. There are spaces for 6 books per alphabetical section.
Then there are 6 tabbed sections to personalise for your own needs (there are sticky labels included for ideas on what you could use these tabbed sections for. Each page in the tabbed section has some lines to split it into 5 areas.
At the back of the book there are 14 blank pages.
The cover is embossed with titles of various books in various different style fonts.
There are 3 ribbon place markers (in black, grey, and silver ribbon)
A double slot expandable inner pocket at the back of the journal which contains several adhesive labels. There are a sheet of labels designed to be used on the blank tabs, coloured icon labels to decorate the inner pages and a few labels to customize the cover.
A free bookmark which matches the cover style is also included.
