    What a lovely reading and journaling practice. I have kept reading journals on and off for years – I only recently started up again. It is nice to challenge myself in both reading and writing, and a record of sorts of what I read and thought.

    I do wonder: is that your TN with your planner and lists and the reading journal in there as well? Or do you keep a separate TN for this journal?

      Thanks so much for reading!

      This is my TN with a planner and an additional insert as a journal, so I keep three inserts inside in total, along with a zipper pocket which houses stamps, coins, receipts. I do adjust every once and again, but this has been working out for the last little while for me. πŸ™‚

    I used to be a voracious reader ad well. But, as you have said, life happens. My son keeps asking me, everyday, how many pages have I read today. And I am always guilty for I have not read any. I like your idea of forcing myself to allot two pages for every book I read. I will try this. πŸ’“

      How lovely that you have a little built-in accountability system! It is so nice that your son is so interested in your reading. I hope this system, or something else, works for you. πŸ™‚

    This blog was one of the most insightful posts I have read in a while – it is a great idea! I read the Book of Negros by Lawrence Hill when it first came out and led me onto a very satisfying learning journey of historical ethnicity in Nova Scotia and New York – a small journal would have been perfect to collect these thoughts to look back on. I will begin one immediately, thanks so much!

      Yes, I know exactly what you mean, when one book leads you down a rabbit hole through other authors or discoveries! An ever expanding world. Hope a reading journal brings you much of what you’re looking for.
