This review is from: One Line a Day: A Five-Year Memory Book (Diary)Really like this little diary. As the previous reviewer mentioned, it feels well made: a nice simple cover, gold-edged pages, and thick enough paper. Also, my boyfriend and i got this to write together...so the requirement for it not to be too feminine was there too. We sit down together most evenings (unless we're busy, but even then the "short & sweet" nature of the entries mean it doesn't take too long to catch up!) to write it. It can sometimes be challenging if we've had a particularly busy day, which i guess is my one issue with it. It does however have a section at the back (i think about 5ish pages worth, but don't hold me to that!) of "Memorable dates" which you can use to expand upon particularly important events...but given it's a 5-year diary it's not much leeway! In the same breath though, the short entries really make you think about what the most important things are that you want to remember, rather than just rambling on. If you're looking for freedom to write descriptive accounts of your daily activities then this probably isn't for you. I'll end on a positive though-i love the way the diary's set out, in that the same day every year is on the same page, meaning that when we eventually get to over one year of entries it'll be easy to scan up the page and reminisce about what we were doing that time during the previous year.
