I love to talk about books– what I’m reading, what I want to read, and so on. But I have this problem, that when someone asks what I’ve been reading lately or my favorite genres, I draw a complete blank.
I’m consistently reading books, but I don’t think I can name the last three books I’ve read. It’s like I read a book and move right on to the next one, completely forgetting the one I just read. It’s why I’m deciding to try something new in 2020 by keeping a book journal.
I found mine at Barnes and Noble (though it looks like it’s also on Amazon, HERE) and I love the format of being able to record 100 books and jotting down a few notes. It seems like a lot of book journals like to go alphabetically, but what if I want to read a lot of books that start with an ‘S’?
Anyone else keep a book journal? Do you feel like you remember the books better? I’m curious to see if it helps me.
First up on my list for 2020 is ‘A Gentleman in Moscow.’
