Read, Remember, Recommend by Rachelle Roger’s Knight

I love to keep notes of what I read and what I felt about the book.  Before I blogged these thoughts, I put them in binders, the result being several large journals filled with books I read and my thoughts about them.  I treasure these books in my own writing.

Now with the blogging taking over my hand written version, I still like to take notes and of course jot down titles of books that others recommend to me.  These notes go on backs of grocery receipts or whatever piece of paper I can find at the time and inevitably get lost resulting in the sheepish phone call of,

“What was the name of that book you were telling me about?”

When I received this book,, Read, Remember, Recommend for review I was thrilled with what it had to offer.  Not only is there spaces to record what I have read and what I recommend, but also the books I have loaned out to others.  The front of the book is pages of award-winning books with spaces for you to check if you have read them, recommend them, or want them.

This is the type of book that any book lover should have.  I am thinking with Mother’s day coming up it would make a great gift for all the mom’s out there who enjoy reading.

I thoroughly am enjoying my copy!

I received my copy of this book for review from the Author.

  1. I shall be passing this along as a Mother’s Day idea to the kiddies so that their dad doesn’t convince them to buy me something I want to return immediately!

  2. You’re right – I bet this would make a great Mother’s Day gift! Thanks for the tip!

  3. I have journals full of books that I have read, what I thought and when I finished. I love looking back at these to remember the moments reading them.

    I have a similiar type of book that you can record in more detail. I’ve started it but haven’t been using it as much now that I started my blog.

    But something like this would make a great Mom’s day present.

    Take care,
    Michelle

  4. Great minds and all…I was just out buying more notebooks where I can jot things down, including those books I want to read…But that system sometimes gets disorganized, for me, since I’m thinking…now where did I put that list?

    This sounds better…Thanks!

  5. Hey Sheila,

    Thank you so much for this awesome review! You are amazing to film something for You Tube! Wow. I am truly in awe.

    I really appreciate your comments – and I do think it would make a great Mother’s Day gift for any reading mom out there (you never know what they have read or not).

    You made my day with this review!

    Thank you.

  6. I really liked this one a lot as well; very useful!

  7. I would love this book! Adding it to my wishlist.

  8. This book sounds great! I’d love a place to jot down and keep track of all the notes from a book. Love this review!

  9. Like yourself I have binders full of notes about the books I’ve read over the years – it’s great to take a trip down memory lane every now and then.

  10. Great idea for Mother’s Day, Sheila! I bet my mom would love this – she’s always losing track of what she’s read, what she wants to read, etc. Thanks!

    I keep a book journal, plus my blogs, plus Goodreads! But I do tend to lose track of which books I lend to people.

    Anyway, I LOVE books about books, so I might get this just for the book lists!

  11. This looks great! I’ve been wanting a proper book to hand write notes in and this looks perfect, thanks for the review! :)

  12. I think I’m the only person in the entire blog world who didn’t get a copy of this for review. Maybe my kids will get me one for Mother’s Day. Not likely, but I can always ask. :)

  13. Hello! I just discovered your blog from another blog where I was entering a contest. I loved the name of your blog and so am here. This book sounds really interesting, I have started keeping my notes on various books and it would be nice to keep them all neatly in one place.
    Thank you for the review.

    Blessings,
    Lucie

  14. I am enjoying my copy of this fantastic reading journal too! It’s one of the best things I’ve owned. I have never kept a reading journal before and only wrote out book titles in the back pages of notebooks. I will still continue doing that though. :)

    Well, I’m gonna use this journal for a long time. Thanks for the video too!

    Here is my review of it.

  15. I have started a notebook (actually my second or third) with books I want to look for. I’ve not kept a list of what I’ve read – I usually keep the book, which isn’t really a good thing. My notebook started out organized, but it didn’t stay that way long. I’ll have to check this one out.

  16. That is so cool! I’m going to have to get one. I love how you video ‘d it too.
    Thanks!

  17. This book looks like it could be useful. Since I started blogging, I do not write down my thoughts about a book into a notebook. But, I could see the benefit of keeping a quick and handy list with a simple notation of if I liked it or note. Also, a handy list of which books I would like to read would be nice for when I am at the store. Is this book on the large size making it too cumbersome to tote around?

    This book could also make a nice gift for friends who do not blog about books.

    • It is about the size of the paperbacks now – the bigger ones, maybe a bit more square. The book is on rings though as apposed to a binding, which makes it east to flip open and hold on the page you want.

      I use a large purse so I can always carry a book with me, and this would fit easily into that.

  18. Hi, Sheila –

    Based on your review, I thought this book would be a perfect Mother’s Day gift for my mom. I checked 6 different book stores today (5 of them by phone, thankfully!) and not a single one has it in stock! The paperback was just released in April – you would think they’d all have it! Looks like this gift idea might have to wait for Christmas (her birthday is this weekend, too!).
