I am an avid book reader so my Amazon Kindle is never too far away from my side. Today, I would like to show you all my Reading Journal Filofax.
It's an A5 pink Finsbury. I also have the pink Kindle Cover, this folds back on itself so it stands up on its own.
My first cover page is the Kindle picture. I just love this picture of the person sitting under a tree; it reminds me of my late Dad. He told me once, when he was a young lad, he would often take a book and go and sit under a tree for hours, reading it.
So this is my set up:
The first set of tabs are: Kindle Purchases, Books Read, Samples, Wanted, Authors and Book Reviews.
The next set: are 2 sets of A-Z index dividers:
These house my Book Lists. I have A-Z of Kindle Downloads and A-Z of Paper Books.
Across the top I have monthly tabs:
I write what books I read on every day, each month. So far, it's been a bit of a slow year!
Books I buy & Reading List pages:
These are my Kindle downloads and what I paid for them. One of the best things about the Amazon Kindle is, you can get an awful lot of very good, free books.
This is my Book Read section. I have read a lot more this year, but in this section, I only write the books I've completed.
I have an A-Z list of all the samples I've downloaded, again this is another brilliant e-book feature, as it allows you to read the first few pages/chapters of any book you are interested in. I did have these under another set of A-Z index dividers, but I had to remove them as my Filofax became obese.
I have hundreds of samples and I can never remember what the actual story is about, so I sometimes use sticky notes with little reminders on.
My Wanted List: I do own some of these books already in paper form, but I now want them for my Kindle.....just waiting for Amazon to reduce the prices.....for example, The Passage, I own the hard back version and it's really heavy to hold, so I checked Amazon and their Kindle version was around £9. A few months later it was down to £5. I brought it a little while ago for less than £3. So sometimes it's worth waiting, for the price to drop.
Authors I enjoy:
Authors Lists. A list of the books wrote by the Authors I like.
|The R is for the books I've read|
Book Reviews cover page:
This is how I fill in my book reviews:
And a completed Book Review.
Book List Cover:
First I have the A-Z for the Kindle Books I own. I use the book titles for these lists.
Then I have the A-Z of the Paper books I own. I go by Authors for this list.
I also have many books on particular subjects such as Tarot, Angels and Reiki, so I have lists of those books too under their own headings.
And that's pretty much my book Journal. Hope you enjoy!
