Readers, after two years of preparation, my book My Reading Life: A Book Journal comes out tomorrow! Thank you to everyone who has preordered. It makes such a big difference for authors, now more than ever. If you haven’t preordered yet, there’s still time. We have some great preorder bonuses and I don’t want anyone to miss out.
About the book
Tracking the books you read is one of the best ways I know to improve your reading life. This journal is meant to capture the history of what you’ve read, to help you reflect on the books you’re currently reading, and to provide a supportive structure as you decide on and plan for the books you want to read.
My hope is that this journal will help you both articulate your reading taste and broaden your literary horizons—and boost your enjoyment of the process. In addition to the tracking pages, I’ve included 25 book lists that feature titles from a diverse assortment of authors, genres, themes, and more, as well as seasonal reading suggestions.
Bound in an attractive and sturdy hardcover, this compact book journal fits right in your tote bag, whether you’re going to the library or bookstore, to school, or to work. It makes a great gift, too!
