[Ad – review. I was sent this notebook for review purposes and all thoughts are my own]
If you’re anything like me, you always have a book with you, you’re forever scrolling through Bookstagram and reading blog posts, and you’re signed up to various publishers’ newsletters. So what do you do when you read a particularly emotive or inspiring quote? Or stumble across a review of a book you want to add to your TBR? Or spot an upcoming release you can’t miss? I’m always photographing pages of my books and screenshotting things I’ve found online, only to forget about them later. Enter To Be Read: A Booklover’s Notebook.
This hella cute notebook is handy to carry around with you and record all of those vital bits of bookish information. It features 160 lined pages, lays flat and has an elastic closure and pen loop. Plus its peppered with plenty of quotes itself.
Every so often there’s a spread with a quote and space for a themed list, such as ‘dreams to hold’, ‘places to go’ and ‘keys’.
What are your favourite quotes? I’ve listed some of my favourites below:
“Books are often far more than just books” – Roxane Gay, Bad Feminist
“Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same” – Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights
“She is too fond of books, and it has turned her brain” – Louisa May Alcott, Little Women
It can be so hard to choose a favourite book, as favourite means different things to different people. I can easily name my favourite genre (feminist non-fiction), writer (Jodi Picoult), children’s book (The Magic Faraway Tree), most recommended (To Kill A Mockingbird) and favourite new release from 2018 (The Displaced) but ‘favourite favourite’? I think that would have to be my most re-read which, coincidentally, I have a post planned for World Book Day, so I’ll leave you until next Thursday to guess what that is. Leave a comment with your guess and I’ll reveal all soon.
How do you keep track of all your bookish notes?
