Several years ago a fabulous and thoughtful friend gave me a Book Journal.
It has been a brilliant resource for recording all those details from most recent reading material that are replaced or confused when new novel excitement kicks in!
Also it extends the thinking processes whilst recording the raw emotions as the end of a brilliant book is reached.
(This must have started at an early age as I have a childhood copy of Watership Down with an annotated list of rabbit names!)
My mum often makes notes during the books she reads - she had a list of interesting characters from Harry Potter to keep her feet on the ground in the plot!
For Christmas we gave her a Book Journal in which to keep her notes. Using a hardback spiral bound notebook covered in some handmade felt.
A wet photo!
Attached with a loose crochet strap..
...and some dodgy stitching...
the cover is detachable
...and intentionally very thin felt to keep the bulkiness to a minimum ..
the silver elastic is an original feature of the book
...its a bit delicate for a cover, but I know it will be well cared for!
Full of memories from crafty projects!
