I’m a list-loving, book-reading, day-dreaming kind of a woman. The Well-Read Women: a Reader’s Journal is pretty much the perfect gift, in my eyes. Seriously, if someone had given me this book, I would think to myself: “wow, they really know me!”
My favourite journals are the kind that have prompts and space to create lists. This book has many sections just like that. The majority of the journal has full pages dedicated to single books: where you put in the book title, your rating, your notes, favourite quotes, etc.
At the back of the journal, there are prompts to list books you want to check out, notes, ideas, and observations. I love the light blue ribbon that’s attached in this journal, which allows you to keep your place. This makes it easy to add more to the pages about the books you’re reading. Favourite quotes? Thoughts on characters you’re reading about? It’s so easy to add them in!
One other thing I love about this journal is the pages spread throughout with illustrations of famous female characters in books. There are page spreads with illustrations and a quote from the character in popular books. These spreads make the journal feel like a piece of precious art—all your favourite books mentioned inside and inspiring female characters, too!
You can find Well-Read Women: A Reader’s Journal at Amazon.ca, Indigo/Chapters and independent retailers for $27(ARV). If you’re a book-lover, shopping for one or just love keeping things organized in lists, check out this journal! I was sent this journal in order to write this feature.
