  1. There is no such thing as reading too much. And, I, too, have a book journal, a suede notebook someone bought me as a present. I record the title, author, date started and date finished and a few lines on what I thought about the book. It's good to look back on, especially if I re-read a book, which I do sometimes. Readers of the world, unite!

  2. I hear ya! I am an avid reader! I cannot be without books at bedtime! and my tastes range from classic literature(I too adore aroom with a view)to Biographies(John Betjamin at present) to self help,Marian Keyes latest(its breaking my heart, but funny)cookery,crafting….Oh! so many books, so little time!

  3. No, you never can read too much! In fact, there's simply not enough time to read everything one wants!
    I keep a book of all the books I read, but I write comments about them and it's all really pompous and dull. Your idea is so much lovelier and more meaningful.

  4. I work in a wonderful library, the experience is sometimes akin to an illicit affair – I'm so busy it is forbidden to actually read the books, I have to resort to stolen glances as I'm helping others find their requests! I mustn't complain too much though, it's one of the few jobs where it's fun to take the "work" home with you! The book journal is a great idea, try not to lose it amongst your other purchases!

  5. Oh! Parallel thoughts again! My constant wail is 'ohhh, I have run out of pages!' at the end of a book, and just now I was thinking my March project will be to find a scrumptious notebook to keep a record of my reading in…hurrah for books, scrumptious notebooks, ribbons and friends! I also want to design a book plate to make the special ones truly my own!

  6. Since we moved last fall, the children are in school all day and I haven't any friends to run around with so I have been reading books like there's no tomorrow! Even when I am doing house work or driving, I usually have a book on tape playing. I feel that this time to read is a great blessing! Plus, the library people LOVE me! They say I alone have doubled their numbers since I've been here! LOL
    God bless!

  7. I sadly don't have much time for reading these days, so when I AM able to read, I soak it all in like a dry sponge. It is near impossible to tear me away from a book once I do manage to get one in my hands for more than 15 minutes!
