5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE this journal, 1 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Q and A a Day: 5-Year Journal (Diary)
I'm halfway through my second year of this journal, and I still update it consistently (which, if you knew me, you'd realise is a great endorsement!). The questions are thought-provoking and can inspire other projects just by getting an internal conversation going. It's really one of the best gifts I've ever given myself, even though it can be painful sometimes - sometimes I can't bear to look back at my previous answers, and sometimes my present-day answer is a direct response to my last one. It's totally up to you how you respond to it. It's beautifully made, the gold edging is gorgeous, and the binding is still going strong after nearly 18 months of daily use.

I loved it so much, this Christmas I bought one for my boyfriend and I bought 2 copies of the children's version to give to my niece and nephew. My nephew declared it to be "the most epic present ever". (He's 8, my niece is 10). The children's version is 3 years instead of 5 years so it has bigger spaces to accommodate drawings and children's bigger writing; they're both still using them, 5 months on.

My only criticism - and it's a small one - is that the questions sometimes sound a bit U.S.-centric. One of them is "East coast or West coast?" which suggests "North America" to me, because it's not like a land-locked country would ever think to ask such a thing! I think there are also questions like "Republican or Democrat?", if my memory serves. But as with all of the questions, there's plenty of room for interpretation and ad-libbing, so I wouldn't drop a star for that factor.

It's such a genius idea, I wish I had thought of it myself! Kudos to the people who made this.
